Interesting facts about Kanban

In 1947, Toyota developed the Kanban system, a method for organizing just-in-time production. Delivery is always based on the actual consumption of materials at the point of supply and consumption. The Kanban principle is easy to understand using the example of the milk run of the English and US milkmen: they replaced the empty milk bottles on their customers’ doorsteps with just as many full containers in a fixed delivery rhythm at an early stage.

The Key Advantages of Kanban

Since the introduction of the decentralized control method, Kanban has been constantly improved and further developed – right up to the highly efficient, (partially) automated E-Kanban. The actual core has remained the same: instead of the classic push (bring) principle, the pull (get) principle applies. Whereas the push principle usually relies on demand estimates, Kanban is based on actual demand, which means that stock levels can be significantly minimized. The Kanban system is therefore more robust and at the same time more flexible. Over the course of time, new and even more efficient pull principles have been developed that optimally safeguard delivery and production capabilities on site.
