In a "pull" production system, the final process pulls needed parts from the previous process, which pulls from the process before it, and so on, as determined by customer demand. This allows you to operate without preset schedules and avoid unnecessary costs, wastes, and delays on the manufacturing floor.

Pull Production for the Shopfloor introduces production teams and managers to basic pull production concepts, enabling them to begin understanding, planning, and implementing this lean tool. Use this book to get everyone on board to reduce work in process inventory, lead-time, and other profit-draining expenses. This book will enable plant managers to explain and thereby get support the support they need from higher management for their pull implementation efforts.

In this book you will learn about:

  • Key concepts and applications of pull production
  • The five steps to implementing a pull production system
  • Production leveling
  • Line balancing
  • Managing pull production with kanban
  • One-piece flow production
  • Linking your suppliers to your pull production system
