Kanban CardView boards

The boards are great for managing inventory movement

As the year’s end approaches, manufacturers are using visual Kanban boards to coordinate inventories and lean workflow.

“The boards are great for managing inventory movement,” says a materials manager from St. Clair Shores MI. “As Kanban cards are removed the yellow and red pocket colors give us a visual signal that supplies are low”. A Lean manufacturing coordinator from Lexington KY says, “They are effective for visual load leveling and reducing work in progress. We use them in our warehouse areas and at each work cell. With these CardView boards our people always know which job to work on next … no time is wasted and we are always working the top priority orders.”

“CardView board users tell us they reduce inventory levels, work in progress and stock outs. Each comes in 6 size capacities and includes Kanban cards in 17 colors, card printing templates, color pocket tapes and press-on FlashSpot signals so customers can tailor the board to their exact needs.” says Magnatag spokesman Christian Krapf “We offer Kanban CardView board kits in 5 formats: Next-Job, Build-Board, Job-Load, To-Do, and On-Hand” Magnatag’s own lean manufacturing manager adds, “We use them in our own warehouse and production to keep inventories low and balance our manpower to meet customer ship dates” For more information about Magnatag CardView Kanban boards go to http://www.magnatag.com/kanban or call 800 624 4154.
