Kanban underpins Toyota’s “just-in-time” (JIT) production system. By using ‘Kanban’ (the Japanese word for ‘billboard’) you can visualise work simply and effectively. A basic Kanban board has a three-step workflow: To Do, In Progress, and Done.
However Dada will supply pre-built workflows and forms which can be mapped to meet the unique process of any particular team.
The main purpose of representing work as a card on the Kanban board is to allow team members to track the progress of work through its workflow in a highly visual manner.
Kanban cards feature critical information about that particular work item, giving the entire team full visibility into who is responsible for that item of work, a brief description of the job being done, how long that piece of work is estimated to take.
- Visualise metrics and work in progress
- See bottlenecks and roadblocks and decide how to remove them
- Improve team communication
- Empower teams to self-manage work
- Inspire team collaboration
Kanban cards, although originated in manufacturing, can now be used in Agile software development, service tasks, and to keep track of personal work.
The board has states as columns, which every work item passes through – from left to right. In the example below one pulls the work items along through the , and columns. There are various – horizontal “pipelines” for different types of work. As you can see work items are represented visually on a Kanban board, allowing team members to see the state of every piece of work at any time and optimize the flow of the work among the team.
The “Work In Progress”-Limit (WIP Limit) for every column (state) tells you how much work items are allowed to be in a certain state at any given point in time. If a state reaches its pre-defined WIP limit, no new work can enter that state.These clusters make bottlenecks in the progress visible – you can simply look at the Kanban Board to see where your process needs improvements.
Cards are visual representations of tasks, or entities, that need to move through the phases of the pipe in order to complete the workflow process.
The left side displays the completed steps or filled out information for that card from the all previous phases.
The right side shows the steps that must be completed for the card to move forward to the next phase.
