    Does anyone have a quick kanban simulation idea for training?

    The “Dot spot” Company game. 2 hours, for 7 participants plus observer and customer. Nice simulation game and easy to administer.

    Ken,
    If you post your e-mail address I will send you the package with instructions tomorrow. It is pretty self-explanatory. Regards!

    If you don’t mind, I’d like a copy of your “dot spot” game. We have a dot game that we use for training, but it’s not really a kanban simulation. Thanks in advance.avitabil@aol.com

    Adam, if we are talking about the same game, then kanban is one element of the simulation (third round) in addition to others such as pull vs. push, batch vs. one-piece flow, WIP, cell design, work balancing, quality, and kanban. It is very difficult to isolate the kanban system from the “lean package”. I don’t even see any sense in simulating a kanban system in isolation. This game is to introduce the relationship of the key concepts and how they relate that can then be elaborated on in more detail by showing the different types of kanbans. I will send you the instructions by EOD tomorrow, but it may well be the same game that you are already using. So, don’t be disappointed :-).

    Goodmorning Hans,
    Is it possible to mail me a copy of the Kanban game.We are on our way to implement Kanban.Maybe this simulatian can take away scepsis by some people.
    Thanx in advance,
    Bernard
    PS Hans seems a Dutch name to me. Where are you from?

    Bernard,
    Almost right. I always introduce myself in training as coming from North Dakota, but the reality is I’m a “verrotte muff”, i.e. the big country next to the Netherlands. Spent many years in Amsterdam though, great little country!
    Anyway, post your e-mail address and I will send it later today. Et toi, t’es Francais?  A plus tard!

    It does sound like the same game.  We have altered the game a bit and found it works well.  If you’d like I could send you the way we run it.  We run the first round as screwed up as possible, then we make them create a value stream map, brainstorm and then create a PICK chart.  We’ll let them implement just about anything they want with a few exceptions.  Then the third round we’ll give them a set demand so they have to come up with standard work in progress and figure their takt time then complete the requirement.  We also have them establish the right size buffer of stickers and paper.  Usually the teams never establish an effective kanban.

    Adam,
    I’d be very interested to see your changes. I also made some changes, but haven’t documented them. Like you, I “screw up” the process in the first run to show the impact of out-of-control processes on any process and then move into the mapping etc. I also only allow them to prioritize the changes that they make and have them pick 3 at a time in order to simulate that in some instances improvements may be a continuous cycle. If you don’t mind, send it to morphologi@aol.com.
    Thanks in advance!

    We are in early stage to omplement Kanban. Training with lectures is not effective. Your simmulation sounds excellent. 
    If it is OK, can you please e-mail instructions etc.
    Thanks.

    I know I’m replying to an old post, but scanning the responses I couldn’t see any mention of the Buckingham Game.It uses various colors of lego brick. I’ve used it and it went well, it’s fun and gets people involved.

    Glen, Good morning!Thanks for your posting about the Buckingham Game. FYI, a variant has been developed, called the “Warwick Game”, that tries to address some of the shortcomings of the Buckingham version:

    I’m kind of bemused by this request. Kanban implementation is
    very simple but gets more complicated when you statistically size it
    for optimization reasons.
    Kankan implementation, on the appropriate segment of inventory,
    will drive 50 to 95% reduction in inventory – I do not see the reason
    to simulate this very simple concept – it’s more of a “go do” and
    see the results.Am I missing a point here ?Adam
