Implementing Change Using Kanban
Bottlenecks are exacerbated because we are working in large batches. Our partner appears to be working in batches of 25. So what happens is we get nothing then all of the sudden we get a whole lot.
Also, it will impact us further down stream because the large clog just goes downstream. We’ve been talking about batches lately and the trouble of working with large ones. I even showed my manager the concept of single-piece flow. At first he was skeptical, but I think he began to see its merits.
