Stop the Chaos & Start Kanban

July 24, 2013
Sponsored by Peter Paul
Creating kanbans with customers is a great way to reduce lead times and improve on time delivery. It goes beyond focusing on an order and is a partnership between the customer and supplier. Each company yields benefits from this process. The customer sees shorter lead times and increased on time delivery. The supplier sees the same benefits and increases customer satisfaction. Kanban creates evenness but does not force you to be rigid. Kanban allows flexibility as demand fluctuates. It’s a great way to reduce inventory and improve inventory turns. Implementing kanban is an excellent way to improve the business partnership and communication between both companies.
