Total time 50 minutes

To ensure that the participants do not only get to know Kanban in its short form as a planning tool, the e⁠-⁠learning first briefly goes into its development. On the basis of the development in the Japanese automotive industry, they get to know the "flow idea" behind Kanban. This should enable the participants to use the method more creatively and purposefully. A case study from the manufacturing industry will also make Kanban tangible. The participants will learn the different ways to handle a Kanban board. They also learn about the most important elements such as "Work in Progress Limits" and the "Pull Principle".
