Kanban refers to a system for detecting weaknesses in the material flow in logistics. It is an important method in the production process control. A significant feature of Kanban is the reduction of products in the warehouse. With the help of the kanban (Japanese: note or card) parts are purchased exclusively on a just-in-time basis, ie only when the material is really needed (demand-oriented system). The goal is to control the entire value chain cost-optimally.
In this seminar, you will learn the basics and principles of the kanban in order to implement them in your own company for the purpose of a demand-oriented system.
