"Kanban" in translation from Japanese - "signal board". In production, such a board is used to visualize the increasing rates, which allows you to produce more products at a lower cost. A vivid example is Toyota's approach, thanks to which the "just-in-time" principle with minimal costs has been effectively implemented for many years. David Anderson cites an expanded set of those ideas (visualization of the process and work rules, typification of work elements, service classes, cadences, metrics and graphs for management accounting and analysis) that define the kanban method. The book describes the tools that allow you to effectively introduce lean manufacturing ideas into technological developments and IT operations with a minimum of resistance detecting changes and still maintain optimum for all employees involved in the work pace.
