The Kanban System has a proven pedigree; devised, in the 1950’s, by Mr. Taiichi Ohno,Vice President of Toyota.

Kanban systems:

Create work sites that respond to changes quickly.
Achieve and assure quality control.
Design work according to human dignity, mutual trust and support, and allowing workers to reach their maximum potential.

The Web T Cards online Kanban is a simple-to-operate system and inexpensive to implement. It is a distributed system, where complex system behaviour is controlled by simple local rules. Visual controls provide a direct form of communication and make clear what must be done by managers, supervisors, and operators.
