What Should You Make Today?

How do you decide what product to make on any given day in the studio? With limited time, making the wrong thing hurts twice. You don’t want to make product that isn’t selling, and you don’t have time to waste when you have orders to get out the door. By using this system, your to-do list is entirely out of your hands and controlled by your customer. There’s no need to calculate what needs to be made, you simply visit the area where empty kanbans are kept and see what needs replenishment. All the time spent on ‘production scheduling’ can now be used for more practical things, like production itself. Manual changes to production are reduced to non-kanban orders such as custom products and seasonal items. Using this system is also useful when employees are being onboarded, as it’s obvious what needs to be made next.
