Push vs. Pull Systems
By Kaye Krueger
In this interactive object, learners read about the differences between push and pull manufacturing systems. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In a series of three interactive exercises, learners explore the relationship between process cycle time and defect detection, and between process cyle time and smaller batch sizes. The techniques of lean/JIT are applied to achieve the continuous improvement (kaizen) goal of reducing inventory by pursuing one-piece flow.
