Basic Concepts Highlights What Is a Production/Service System? What Is a Business Operation/Process? What Does a Card-Based Control System Actually Control? Why Use a Card-Based Control System Rather than the Latest Technology? Summary: What Card-Based Control Systems Do (And What They Do Not Do) 20 Highlights Revisited Basic Principles Underpinning a Card-Based Control System Highlights Input/Output Control Visualizing the Stability of the Shop Floor/Station: The Throughput Diagram Summary: Input/Output Control Underpinning Card-Based Control Highlights Revisited Simplified Scheduling through Pool Sequencing and a Shop Floor Dispatching Rule Highlights Some Rules for Priority Dispatching on the Shop Floor Visualizing On-Time Performance: The Order Progress Diagram Summary: Simplified Scheduling through Priority Dispatching Highlights Revisited How to Diagnose a Control Problem?

This book takes a different approach to most other books on the subject―as it starts with an introduction to the control problem, instead of the control solution. Card-Based Control Systems for a Lean Work Design outlines how the problems encountered in typical manufacturing shops and service providers can be characterized, which allows for improved problem diagnosis.
