How to better manage capacity instead of stock. How POLCA can improve your shop floor management
Steffen Herkt & Florian Schneider – QRM Senior Consultants, axxelia GmbH & Co.KG
POLCA is a powerful concept for managing manufacturing orders, specifically tailored to meet the demands of high mix/ low volume environments; such as make-to-order. Applying traditional material-driven concepts (e.g. KANBAN) will not be very beneficial, as managing the high-variability of workloads is key to success in many cases. In this workshop you will learn what POLCA is and how it will help to reduce your MCT's, as well as the WIP in your company. You will receive a hands-on experience of its remarkable effect on your shop floor productivity.
