How to Implement POLCA

POLCA is a card-based production control strategy designed for high-mix, low-volume environments. This hybrid push/pull system effectively overcomes the limitations of pull (kanban) and push (MRP) systems. When implemented in the context of QRM, POLCA has helped companies significantly reduce inventory and lead times while improving delivery performance and throughput. Join us for this two-day workshop for a comprehensive overview and run a factory on POLCA and Kanban during a hands-on simulation exercise.
