Pull/Kanban Systems

MAP004 - 8.00 Hours

Description

The Pull/Kanban Systems course demonstrates the power of implementing a Pull System in manufacturing operation. Participants take part in manufacturing simulations that compare Push and Pull Systems and then design a Pull System for a case study factory. The course includes three virtual factory tours that show the results that real manufacturers have achieved with the Pull strategy.

This course can be scheduled to meet your specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class for your organization, please contact Knowledge Engineering at (800) 541-7149 or ke@teex.tamu.edu.
