Abstract Because of market competition and rapid technology development, managements of manufacturing industries are in pressure to improve productivity and cost effectiveness of their products. This leads manufacturing industries to adopt the philosophy of time-based management of inventory using Kanban technique- an integrated Just In Time (JIT) philosophy. This paper presents a case study of Kanban applied to a leading Australian lawn-care products manufacturing company. Real life data is used for illustration. It analyses the overall benefits to the company by implementing Kanban technique to one of its major assembly area.
