Webcast: Core Process Pull: Little's Law in Action

Dr. Lars Maaseidvaag, Vice President - Product Development, MoreSteam

Core Process Pull (CPP), one of three different styles of pull systems, is critical to establishing a stable lead time for internal processes. CPP (also known variously as "generic pull" or "work control systems") is not associated with kanban card, trigger mechanism or part number (replenishment pull or two-bin pull), but instead is a pull system associated with the authorization for work to begin in a process.

Unlike replenishment pull, where specific numbers of items are required to be made through production, core process pull limits the number of products in process at any given time. It caps the amount of work in a system and is a straightforward application of Little's Law.
