Lean and Kanban: Poker Chips, Kanban and Buffets

See on Scoop.itlean manufacturing

An approach to improving the experience of using a buffet that relies on capping the number of people with concurrent access. It is like the nightclub or museum management system in which a fixed number of visitors is allowed in, and the next one only allowed in when one leaves.

This is in the same spirit as the purely production control approach to Lean, in which you change production planning and scheduling but you don’t redesign the production line itself. For pointers on buffet design, see Waiting For Each Other.
