Use Of Kanban Mechanisms To Deal With Localized Production Problems In An Aerospace Production Environment 981878

In the process of implementing lean production systems, designs must be optimized both at the local and the global levels. In this paper we will explore the application of Kanban systems in three different localized situations:
  • For transportation of large quantities of materials from a group of suppliers over long distances.
  • For establishing regular, short flowtime production through shared resources.
  • For maintaining proper priority and sequence through a labor saving device where manual alternatives exist.
The objective of this paper will be to communicate the situations under which these solutions apply, as well as propose a method for analysis and implementation.
