Applicability of pull control principles in non-typical pull environments
Paper i proceeding, 2010

Abstract This paper deals with applicability of Kanban and Conwip for production planning in planning environments non-typical for the use of such methods by reporting a case study at a company producing complex products of high value. Simulation was applied to test the performance of the two consumption-based control logics and compare these with the present method, based on dispatch lists and supervisor-managed priority control. The result showed that Conwip outperformed Kanban, and that both methods were competitive compared to the present method and the performance targets of the case company.
