kanban signal cards  System Kanban: In a Kanban system, production is triggered by demand. When a part is removed from final inventory point, the last workstation in the line is given authorization to replace the part. This workstation in return sends an authorization signal to the upstream workstation to replace the part it just consumed. This process continues upstream, replenishing the downstream void by requesting material from the antecedent workstation. To control production, the operator requires both input raw Read More...
