Agile Dictionary – Kanban

Kanban – a method of scheduling used in lean manufacturing using the following six rules:

  • Do not send defective products to the subsequent process
  • The subsequent process withdraws only what is needed
  • Produce only the exact quantity withdrawn by the subsequent process
  • Level the production
  • Kanban is a means of fine tuning
  • Stabilize and rationalize the process
