 You have been called in as a consultant to set up a Kanban control system. The first thing to do is to determine the number of Kanban card sets needed. Your research shows that the expected demand during lead time for a particular component is 150 per hour. You estimate the safety stock should be set at 25 percent of the demand during lead time. The tote trays used as containers can hold 8 units of stock, and the lead time it takes to replenish an order is 2 hours. Which of the following is the number of Kanban card sets necessary to support this situation. You found that the number of Kanban cards needed is 47. Your client now tells you that they miscalculated the demand and the true demand is 300 per hour. All other things remain the same. What is the most appropriate answer from the choices below?

 

 

 In setting up a kanban control system you need to determine the number of kanban card sets needed. If the expected demand during lead time is 25 per hour, the safety stock is 20 percent of the demand during lead time, the container size is 5, and the lead time to replenish an order is 5 hours, what the number of kanban card sets is needed?

 

 The “dollar days” inventory measurement can be used in purchasing to discourage large work-in-process and producing earlier than is needed. Is it true or not?
