Reviews

"Exceptionally comprehensive and detailed … The approach in this book is unique in that it does not force the practitioner to change their environment, but it provides detailed action plans for implementation in multiple environments."

Henry M. Lee, Manager, Operations, Gulf States Toyota, August 2006

"This is the first kanban book I have read which clearly understands that there is a significant difference between environments. This book is highly innovative, insightful, and clearly written by an author who has years of implementation experience."

--Terry O'Neill, Vice President, Operations, CMS Products, August 2006

"Raymond Louis' book goes beyond just explaining the obvious benefits of kanban. It delves into the actual design of the kanban system, not treating it as a one-size-fits-all tool."

--Gregory J. Cousins, Lean Champion, Emerson Network Power, August 2006

"Custom Kanban captures the opportunities and implementation challenges in the process of transforming to a Lean Supply Chain."

--Mark H. Kohler, Vice President, Manufacturing, Snap-On Tools, August 2006

"Custom Kanban is an essential book for those in charge of implementing kanban at their company for the 1st time or for the tenth time. Ray Louis does an exceptional job of dispelling the myths about kanban and giving guidelines to shape kanban to fit any company's needs. I found the methodical approach to designing a useful kanban system both instructive and easy to apply."

--Donald Montrose, Production Manager, Catalytic Solutions, Inc, August 2006

"Exceptionally comprehensive and detailed … The approach in this book is unique in that it does not force the practitioner to change their environment, but it provides detailed action plans for implementation in multiple environments."

--Henry M. Lee, Manager, Operations, Gulf States Toyota, August 2006
