Editorial

Attend this webinar to learn how to set up and use kanbans, JIT, pull system, and drum-buffer-rope in medical device and biotechnology manufacturing start-up operations. Also attendees will learn elements of lean documents and lean configuration, sterilization lot size, MRP II kanban system and how to use kanbans to track off-site sterilization and external supply chain suppliers.

Objectives

  • Myths about lot size and local efficiencies.
  • Myths about documentation and support systems.
  • An alternative way to track yield losses during product builds.
  • Preparing kanban cards and bins to control both in-house inventory and external supplier inventory.
  • Smart ways to track variable information using kanban cards (example lot number, PO number, WO number, due dates).
  • How to use kanbans for R&D prototype work?
  • How to simplify paperwork to allow smaller lot sizes?
  • Smart ways to simplify receiving verification.
  • How product shipments trigger new builds?

Program

  • Working definitions of kanban, JIT, pull system, and Drum-Buffer-Rope, with emphasis on medical device and biotechnology manufacturing.
  • Introduction to the elements of lean documents and lean configuration.
  • Selection of appropriate sterilization lot size - a key factor.
  • Practical lot sizes for start-up medical devices.
  • How to handle large-volume and offshore suppliers?
  • How MRP II can help - and hinder - an effective kanban system?
  • How to use kanbans to track off-site sterilization services?
  • Using kanbans with external supply chain suppliers.
  • Smart ways to minimize lot picking times.
  • Lot picking inside a cleanroom
