Calculating Optimum WIP Limits


Overview: Building upon the foundational knowledge gained in the Introduction to Kanban training, this advanced session delves into the intricacies of optimizing Kanban workflows through the calculation of optimum Work in Progress (WIP) limits. Led by experienced Kanban practitioners, this training equips participants with the tools and techniques to fine-tune their Kanban systems for maximum efficiency and productivity.


Key Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the concept of Work in Progress (WIP) limits and their importance in Kanban.
  • Learn how to calculate and adjust WIP limits to optimize workflow performance.
  • Explore techniques for identifying bottlenecks and constraints in Kanban systems.
  • Gain insights into the role of WIP limits in achieving flow and minimizing waste.


Training Structure:

The training is structured into four focused sessions, each aimed at deepening your understanding of WIP limit optimization:

  • Review of Kanban Principles: Reinforcing key concepts from the Introduction to Kanban training.
  • Introduction to WIP Limits: Exploring the rationale behind WIP limits and their impact on workflow management.
  • Calculating Optimum WIP Limits: Techniques for determining the ideal WIP limits for your Kanban system.
  • Practical Applications and Case Studies: Real-world examples demonstrating the effectiveness of optimized WIP limits.
