The Kanban system was created by Toyota years ago. The idea behind it was to introduce to the business world a new generation of working conditions in management, planning and other areas of business. It has a very structured outline and has contributed to making some of the top businesses in the world successful. When properly used the Kanban, system will save time and money while producing reliable top quality products.
Kanban’s main purpose is to effectively eliminate overproduction which means taking control over all production steps. By doing this it helps maintain smooth production control allowing for an efficient process.
Kanban is a Japanese word which means “card”. The system uses cards that have several meanings such as representing things such as withdrawal, deposit and many other signals which help developing and practicing a smooth flow of business in production.
