ELSE Inc.’s Kanban Presentation is designed to help you learn how to optimize efficiency where constraints in the process will not allow one-piece flow (such as when two dependent operations that have large cycle time differences) by implementing a Lean pull system of the activities that create and support your product or service.

A Kanban System can be visualized as a sort of signboard that analyzes the demand and supply across the different steps on your production floor. This is to provide key personnel, such as engineers and project managers, insight to the amount and frequency that parts should be replenished.

Lean manufacturing principles seek to avoid lost profit opportunities because of overproduction or insufficient supply. This is done through the proper scheduling of sub-processes. With the Kanban Presentation, your team learns that an efficient manufacturing process can be achieved through a Pull System where resources flow downstream.

This presentation is supported by the Kanban Simulation. We strongly recommend that they are used together during the training session, because this way your team can experience the true power of what they’ve learned.

Briefly, a Kanban system involves a method of cascading production and delivery instructions from downstream to upstream activities in which nothing is produced by the upstream supplier until the downstream customer signals a need.

A key element of Pull Systems, Kanban is a Japanese word meaning display card or instruction card and it is used as a tool of improvement within the "PULL" system by signaling upstream production. These cards contain vital details pertaining to schedule and quantity, among other things. The Kanban Presentation will pinpoint where such signaling cards should be assigned within your entire manufacturing process for them to be the most effective.

Having a system such as the Pull cards will ensure that your workers provide the right components at the right time, without the risk of over- or under-production.


The objectives of this training material are:

  • Understand the concepts and benefits of Kanban system.
  • Describe the difference between traditional Push systems and non-traditional Pull systems.
  • Describe Kanban, different types of Kanbans and how to calculate the number of Kanban cards needed in a system.
  • Learn how to implement Kanban


  • Kanban Basics
  • Key Inventory Measure
  • Push vs. Pull
  • Definition, Key Terms, Benefits
  • How it works
  • Pull System Rules
  • Types of Kanban Cards
  • Creating Links between Steps
  • Calculating Number of Cards
  • Kanban and Level Scheduling
  • Kanban Applications, Implementation steps
  • Appendix
  • Examples of Kanban cards, Rules, More applications

Based on the above, you can clearly see the benefits of this training material, about Kanban or Lean Pull Systems. It offers not only the theoretical components of the training, but also the step-by-step instructions that constitute the roadmap of implementing Kanban.

Moreover, it offers the chance of discussing case studies and many concrete examples.

Resources Include

  • Kanban Presentation (slides)
  • Trainer Manual (footnotes that explain each slide)
  • Trainee Manual (presentation slides and space for notes)

The presentation comes as a downloadable zip file, available upon payment. Includes uneditable PDF and PowerPoint (2007-10) versions of presentation and supporting PDF files.

Product Version Restrictions

Product Versions

Due to recent changes in the copyright agreements with many of our third party partners in the development of the materials we sell on this site we are going to be adding new versions of our presentations, and simulation games, which will allow editing to different degrees.

The first items to come out will allow Text Edits only, these will be followed by more updated and redesigned materials that will allow other items than just the text to be edited. As they become available more detailed description of the rights and options accompanying each will be added here.

Current Version Descriptions and Rights

Non-edit Versions there is no direct way to edit the text or any other feature of the materials. You can only use the materials in two ways; as is which includes the right to eliminate any slides you wish from the presentation or simulation game (though it would be less than helpful to do so with the games; and secondly you can use our materials and add slides of your own design to them, you may not however imply that those slides are the result of work conducted by ELSE Inc. These versions will remain as our standard base version.

Text Edit Versions with these versions you may translate, or adjust the materials to suit your needs, however you cannot redesign them in any way to become a totally unrelated product. You must also clearly indicate what you have changed in the slides and to what extent the material is no longer the material produced by ELSE Inc. No images may be extracted or used for any purpose other than one strictly related to what they are used for in the presentation or simulation we created. Additional materials added by you allow you to add your copyright to the material as well as your logo’s only were your materials are included. Under no circumstance should and ELSE Inc. logo, statement or footer be removed from the materials.

More versions will be add soon.
