Manufacturing Management I
Companies are looking to new manufacturing techniques to reduce cost and improve quality to maintain manufacturing competitiveness. One such method is the use of kanbans to limit the amount of work-inprocess. Limiting the amount of work-in-process will increase a facilities throughput time, flexibility, and quality. This paper examines how a kanban could be implemented in a personal computer manufacturing facility, and the reasons and expectations for the implementation.
