Explanation: Signal-Kanban

In the signal Kanban there is only a Kanban on one container. This is precisely the container in which the manufacturing batch size is reached. All other containers are ‘emptied’ without Kanban. On the machine, the incoming Kanban will be produced according to FIFO. As the system is not very transparent, it is recommended to use the variant of the extended signal Kanban.
