Kanban – A method for providing material/product to a succeeding operation by signaling the preceding operation when more material/product is needed. This “pull” type of process control employs a kanban, a card or signboard, attached to a lot of material/product in a production line signifying the delivery of a given quantity. When all of the material/product has been processed, the card/sign is returned to its source, where it becomes an order to replenish.
To put it more simply, better communication and planning through visual management.
Kanban began in the early 1940s by an industrial engineer Taiichi Ohno who worked for Toyota automotive in Japan.
