Kanban book addresses environment-specific techniques

February 13, 2007

Productivity Press's Custom Kanban—Designing the System to Meet the Needs of Your Environment, by Raymond S. Louis, provides a text intended to help a company develop and implement a correct and successful kanban system by selecting appropriate kanban techniques based on specific environmental factors and needs.

According to the publisher, by implementing the techniques in the book, the most probable consequences from a kanban design that is not suited to the environment can be avoided: High inventory coupled with shortages, a triggering mechanism that is augmented by hot lists, late customer orders, and high operating costs from not eliminating the non-value-added activities associated with perpetuating the kanban system.
