New Kanban CardView Boards for Job Loading and Lean Inventory Management
Macedon, NY – Manufacturers are using the new visual Kanban boards from Magnatag to coordinate inventories and lean workflow “The boards are great for managing inventory movement”, says a materials manager from St. Clair Shores MI. “As kanban cards are removed the yellow and red pocket colors give us a visual signal that supplies are low”. A Lean manufacturing coordinator from Lexington KY says, “They are effective for visual load leveling and reducing work in progress. We use them in our warehouse areas and at each work cell. With these CardView boards our people always know which job to work on next … no time is wasted and we are always working the top priority orders.”
“Our KanBan CardView customers tell us the boards reduce inventory levels, work in progress and stock outs.” says Magnatag spokesman Christian Krapf. “The boards are available in 5 formats: Next-Job, Build-Board, Job-Load, To-Do, and On-Hand.” Magnatag’s own lean manufacturing manager adds, “We use them in our own warehouse and production to keep inventories low and balance our manpower to meet customer ship dates”.
Each KanBan board type comes in 6 sizes and includes kanban cards in 17 colors, card printing templates, color pocket tapes and press-on FlashSpot signals to tailor the board to your exact needs.
