It all started in the early 1940s. The first Kanban system was developed by Taiichi Ohno (Industrial Engineer and Businessman) for Toyota automotive in Japan. It was created as a simple planning system, the aim of which was to control and manage work and inventory at every stage of production optimally.
Prof. S. C. Kapoor explained Kanban in simple terms. He further said Kaizen can be thought of more as a model or philosophy of management. While at the same time, Kanban takes on a more tactically oriented approach. One of the key similarities in the two approaches is their attempt to identify and remove waste or inefficiency that is in a system.
All teams participated with full enthusiasm, dedication and presented their understanding of the task (Kanban). Each team presented in a unique way. Motivated participation reflected the positive attitude of the participating teams. Name of the participating teams were: Visualisers, Synergy, Cubical Crew, Elite, C2X and Finest Squad.
