Kanban, Lean Quotes

Quote of the Month – 03

“Kanban is like the milkman. Mom didn’t give the milkman a schedule. Mom didn’t use MRP. She simply put the empties on the front steps and the milkman replenished them. That is the essence of a pull system.” ~ Ernie Smith, Lean Event Facilitator in the Lean Enterprise Forum at the University of Tennessee
