Kanban Systems

Your final paper is based on Kanban Systems. I am expecting this paper to be at least five pages in length and the line spacing should be double (or 2). Here are the follow questions I would like you to answer in the formally written paper:

  1. What is the difference between a push and pull production system? (2 paragraphs)
  2. What is Kanban? (2 paragraphs)
  3. Is Kanban a push or a pull production control technique? (Explain in 2 paragraphs)
  4. How does one calculate the number of Kanban needed in a production system? (Please show all the equations necessary. This should be 2 – 4 paragraphs in length or one page)
    The paper you write should contain the following:
    • Abstract – summary of the entire paper (7.5 points)
    • Introduction – an explanation of what this paper will be about (15points)
    • Review of Literature – information from five sources on what Kanban and push and pull systems are. (No direct quotes will be accepted from any source) (40 points)
    o You must have at least five sources
    o Two sources must come from a journal or conference article
    • Kanban Formula Calculation Section– formula for calculating Kanban and an explanation of all the variables used
    • Conclusion – an explanation of why you think Kanban is a push or a pull type production control system.
