Have you ever stopped to get your morning coffee when you’re in a major rush? Of course the coffee shop is busy. You have to wait in line to be served, and then wait again to get your order. Who wants that? If you put a project management system in place, you can reduce that waiting time. Kanban is a project management system that can help reduce response times between suppliers and customers.
Translated from Japanese, “kanban” means “sign card.” Core to the system are the sign cards or kanbans that represent both the demand for a product and the work requirement of producing it. The Kanban system has been adopted by many companies in a variety of industries as a means of improving efficiency.
