Kanban

Kanban is an easy moving or going method that helps in faster development, operations, and growth. The core concept of Kanban includes :

Visualize Workflow

Split the entire work into defined segments or states, visualized as named columns on a wall. Write each item on a card and put it in a column to indicate where the item is in the workflow.

Limit WIP

Assign explicit limits to how many items can be in progress at each workflow segment/state. i.e., Work in Progress (WIP) is limited in each workflow state.

Measure the Lead Time

Lead Time, also known as cycle time is the average time to complete one item. Measure the Lead Time and optimize the process to make the Lead Time as small and predictable as possible.

Benefits of Kanban

The implementation of Kanban has significant benefits for almost any type of work. Kanban is more effective because it visually indicates when the production should start and stop. It is faster, more efficient, and saves significant money over most other production models. It is also more directly responsive to customer demand.
