Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapter 13: JIT/Lean Production.

From the end of Chapter 13, answer Discussion Question 4: The chapter notes that Kanban is not a planning tool but a control mechanism. What does this mean? How does the Marsica MRP-Kanban example in Example 13.4 in Chapter 13 of the textbook illustrate the point?

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers. You are encouraged to post your required replies early during the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this discussion.
