EQUAL ALLOCATION RULE (EAR)

  • Reference work entry
  • 22 Accesses

A Kanban based production system typically operates with a specified number of Kanbans. Rules are used to allocate available Kanbans. EAR implies that available Kanbans are allocated equally to different part types without assigning any priority to a part based on one or more of its attributes. This simple Kanban allocation rule is easy to implement though there are other more efficient allocation rules.
