Kanban and Just in Time (JIT)
This workshop is designed to demystify the Just in time (JIT) & Kanban strategies derived from the ‘Lean production systems’ used by many organisations today. The program is designed to unpack both JIT and Kanban strategies in terms of improvements to process flow. Just In Time (JIT) is a management system of producing only what is required, in the exact quantity required, exactly when it is required. JIT is driven by a series of signals, or Kanbans, that triggers when to carry out the next part of the process. When implemented correctly, JIT generally leads to dramatic improvement in organisations with major return on investment in quality, efficiency and inventory costs. New stock is triggered using visual signals when downstream processes require items or activity to happen saving warehouse space and costs.
