What is a Kanban?

Kanban is a Japanese term that translates to “card” or “board” and indicates some form of signal within a process. Kanbans are part of Just In Time (JIT) processing where either a physical or electronic device indicates that it’s time to order inventory, process a unit or move to the next step in a process.

What is a Supermarket?

A Supermarket is inventory used in tandem with Kanbans as a Pull system to stock materials according to demand. The name comes from the type of shelving used in a supermarket where as one bottle of milk is removed from the shelf, another one rolls into place. Anyone viewing the shelf from behind can see exactly what’s been removed by a customer and how much inventory needs to be replaced. Supermarkets are located near the supplying process so process participants can see and respond to customer usage.
