The Kanban schedule board lets the production planner control and optimize the production plan for kanban jobs. It makes the flow of kanban jobs transparent and gives the production planner a tool that optimizes and adjusts the production plan for the lean manufacturing work cell. Kanban rules in Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management are tied to production flows as the foundation that defines the activities of a kanban.
