Alternate Names: Kanban

Description:

Kanban (the Japanese word for billboard) is a term for the visual cues that might be used in a lean, efficient assembly line in order to expedite and smooth workflow.

The game, Kanban, is set in a factory. You are ambitious workers, trying to impress the factory manager, in order to secure your careers. You must outshine your peers through solid management.

You need to manage supply, improve designs, innovate - anything to stay on the cutting edge, even if it means getting your hands greasy on the assembly line. You must exercise wisdom in choosing which plans you should start, because minimizing waste is crucial.

Over the course of the game, you will develop and improve automobile Parts. You will make shrewd use of the recycling facilities and the limited factory supplies in order to appropriate Parts when the suppliers come up short. Because the factory must run at optimum efficiency, production doesn't wait for you, or for mistakes.

If you want a seat on the board someday, you need to show that you can keep a complex machine running smoothly, efficiently, with everything happening just at the right time. Kanban is a pure eurogame, focused on resource management, that puts you in the driver's seat of an entire production facility, racing for factory goals and the highest level of promotion.

Over the course of the game, you persuade the board and the factory tender to help you develop and improve automobile parts. You make shrewd use of the outside suppliers and the limited factory supplies in order to appropriate needed part when the suppliers come up short. Because the factory must run at optimum efficiency, production doesn't wait for you or for mistakes.

If you want a seat on the board someday, you need to show that you can keep a complex machine running smoothly, efficiently, with everything happening just at the right time. Kanban: Automotive Revolution is a pure Eurogame focused on economics and resource management that puts you in the driver's seat of an entire production facility, racing for the highest level of promotion.
