|Learning To Pull: A Course in Pull/Kanban Techniques|
Sponsored by: VMEC
Using a case study designed to focus on the value of pull/kanban, this workshop takes the participants beyond the value stream into an understanding of the strategic nature of pull/kanban. The workshop does not just answer technical questions such as how to manage lumpy customer demand, but delves deeper into how to set minimum batches, how to size supermarkets, and what kind of kanban to use. This winning combination of strategy and tactics not only results in significant long-term financial benefits achieved very quickly, but also provides a springboard to the focused application of lean techniques.
