Slide 1 of 42
We’re going to talk about the pull system; we’re going to define it, discuss the objectives and give some examples of pull systems in use.
Then we’re going to discuss traditional systems and how they contrast with a pull system.
Next we’re going to investigate how a pull system is managed, what types of pull signals could be used and why you would want to use a particular kind.
We’ll close the discussion by looking at the benefits that can be achieved by implementing a pull system.
