Welcome back to the Journey to True North blog! We’ve been on hiatus for a while, but thought you might enjoy a recent series that we posted on our LinkedIn page, which focused on materials management, delivery, and logistics concepts.
All of these concepts are focused on kaizen of existing / traditional materials management / parts delivery / logistics concepts.
Concept #1: What is a “kanban” pull system (also known as a Type A pull system)
Concept #2: When should we use a “B Type” pull system?
Concept #3: How to we improve the delivery process for large/forklift items?
Concept #4: How to we set-up a direct to line delivery process?
What kinds of obstacles and challenges do you have in trying to implement and manage these systems within a culture of continuous improvement?
