The basic Kanban principles - important facts in a nutshell
What is Kanban?
The term Kanban originally comes from the Japanese language and means "card" or "sign"
The KANBAN system was a method developed by Toyota in 1947 for organising just-in-time production. The approach is based solely on the actual consumption of material at the point of supply and place of us.
The reasons for the neccessary changes in the production price were the relatively low productivity compared to the American competition at that time and the cost-intensive warehouse inventories.
KANBAN is easy to understand using the example of the "milk run" or the "milkman principle" of the English milkmen who worked with the System before it even found is way into industrial manufacturing.
Empty milk bottles on the door step are replaced in a fixed delivery cycle with the same amount of full bottles
On time, requirement-driven and cost efficient!
The method has undergone ongoing developments and improvements since those days.
The pull principle was developed with comprehensive future-oriented logistics concepts.
