The projects objective is to study the role of Kanban in Production system. With the present rate at which the technology is evolving and the competition among the company there is a must among the manufacturer to produce their product at cost efficiency. The theory below hence describes about the impacts of KANBAN in an industry and its basic framework. In this paper we have talked about the Kanbans efforts on a multi stage in order to improve planning and production and role of Kanban size in Just in Time Manufacturing are discussed. The problem faced by a manufacturing company (Oral B) and how they overcame it by implementing Kanban with a great margin of profit is discussed briefly. Future trends in implementing Kanban such as digital and E-Kanban and also the scope of their effects is explained as a part of study. The scope of the project is limited to discussion of current and future Kanban strategy.
This paper presents a case study of the use of an e-Kanban system to minimize operational and logistics issues for a parts supplier within the automotive industry. Measures of operations and logistics performance are examined both before and after the implementation of the e-Kanban system through a series of observations, in-depth interviews, and documentation reviews. The results indicated improvements in production lead times, financial costs, effective and efficient work processes, and reductions in waste. The enhancement of the e-Kanban system through radio-frequency identification (RFID) is also discussed.
