Make a Card

Make-a-Card is a quick simulation to demonstrate the advantages of Kanban and Pull over traditional Push and Batch. The full simulation with discussion can take less than an hour, and requires seven participants per table. The original manufacturing version of this simulation was developed by Mike Studley for ACT in England, and has been modified by HP and Lockheed, by Kevin Meyer and John Vermillion at Abbott in Salt Lake, and adapted for LCI by Will Lichtig and Greg Howell.

Each simulation includes directions, contents list for replenishing supplies and everything necessary to play. Each simulation covers up to 5 tables of 7 people.
