5 Kanban Signals

Welcome to Lesson 5, on the subject of Kanban Signals. This lesson will cover the important principle of replenishing parts (or material) as actually consumed at the point of use, using a formal signal.  Think of that empty milk bottle discussed in an earlier lesson: no full bottle of milk is delivered until an empty bottle signals that milk has been consumed, and that more is needed. Kanban means Signal, and there are a variety of different signaling methods that you can use, to achieve a variety of different responses.
