How Dallas Electronics Maintains a Lean Manufacturing System

 

Kanban Control

Kanban control ensures that assemblies are not made except in response to a demand. Once a minimum and maximum inventory level is established finished product units are produced and will await release from the customer. Once inventory drops below the minimum quantity required, additional product is made not to exceed the established maximum quantity. The Dallas Kanban control system constantly provides the customer with "On-Demand" finished product.
