Abstract: This paper examines multi-stage serial just-in-time production systems that use kanbans as a means of communicating the production needs of each stage of operation. The kanban-controlled system is a linked-demand system. A recursive function is presented which computes the number of kanbans required for all stages of a serial production system. This function is used to compute a lower bound on the expected fill rate for an arbitrary kanban assignment.
