Many outlets have simplified their construction regulate through the use of card-based platforms comparable to kanban and incessant Work-in-Process (ConWIP). even if those platforms offer an easy and powerful visible process for controlling production and repair operations, all too many retailers fight with failed implementations or in achieving effects that fall lower than expectancies. those results might be attributed to a negative healthy among the particular regulate challenge and the answer applied.

This publication takes a unique method of such a lot different books at the subject―as it starts off with an creation to the regulate problem, rather than the regulate solution. Card-Based keep watch over platforms for a Lean paintings layout outlines how the issues encountered in common production retailers and repair companies should be characterised, which permits for more suitable challenge diagnosis.

The first 4 chapters of the ebook lay the rules for challenge analysis. the following 3 chapters then speak about, in series, all the 3 "traditional" card-based keep an eye on platforms: kanban, ConWIP, and Paired-cell Overlapping Loops of playing cards with Authorization (POLCA). The e-book explains how every one of those card-based keep an eye on structures works and identifies the categorical form of keep an eye on challenge to which every process applies.

The subsequent chapters concentrate on keep an eye on of stability by means of Card-Based Navigation (COBACABANA), a procedure constructed for high-variety retailers generating made-to-order, personalized items. this is often the 1st ebook to debate this novel method, such as using playing cards to estimate due dates or supply time allowances.

The publication closes with a framework that offers tips on which procedure to use. This framework contrasts the keep watch over challenge with the keep an eye on resolution. the opportunity of combining card-based platforms is usually mentioned to create a nested solution.

Sample text

E. is it the information you need at the time you need it)? Cards provide the necessary information, simply and visually. And they provide it when it is needed. Timeout: That cards are physical objects may not seem important, but we argue that it is. Cards ensure information does not get lost since neither an existing nor a missing card can be ignored. If a card is lying somewhere or is missing then this is a physical fact, which calls for attention. Of course there are also drawbacks to physical cards since they need to be moved to transmit information.

We first need to understand how a production/ service system can be described. This then clarifies the role that cardbased control systems can and cannot play in supporting such a system. It is also important that we use the same concepts throughout the book to provide the required clarity. You may find this somewhat technical, but bear with us. We will use a lot of “timeouts” to give you some breathing space, some time to conceptualize things and perhaps to relate them to your own shop. You may agree or disagree with our conceptual definitions.
