Warning! Reading this may save you money!
Your supply chain can work seamlessly and be low maintenance or it can be your worst nightmare and even shut down your production line. Kanban is used by Toyota not only to avoid costly shutdowns but to shorten lead times, reduce inventory and develop trusting partnerships with suppliers.
One example of how our clients have benefited from the Kanban system is a very lean switch manufacturer in Massachusetts. We receive their Kanban ship sheet once or twice a week. Most Friday evenings on our way home to our families, we receive an email indicating what parts they need. We ship their product the following Monday morning in their re-usable plastic bins. This may sound simple enough but the convenience and cost savings over time are huge since the client is getting the product as they need it.
Talk to our Ninja Tim ( email@example.com )or Samurai Sarina ( Sarina@whbagshaw.com ) to learn how we can set you up on a similar Kanban!
