Kanban, as well known as a practical toolkit of Lean, has become popular over recent years. Many companies are using Kanban to change and improve their own business and production situations. And many Kanban teams have reported successful implementations. However, there is no single best way to implement Kanban. What each Kanban entity does is to experiment.Kanban has been introduced to Åkers Sweden AB since the second half of 2008, when the global economic risk stated sweeping the world. Facing the shrunk demand, Kanban did drag Åkers Sweden out of the recession swamp. At present, Åkers Sweden is still on the implementing process of its updated Kanban philosophy. There are many obstacles need to overcome, a lot of vagueness need to be clarified, a crowd of aspects need to be improved.Facing this dynamic implementing condition, this thesis is expected to yield in a more practical oriented way, in order to deal with the existing problem in Åkers Sweden.In this thesis, description is used as an essential method to reveal different aspects of Kanban and illustrate how Kanban works. The Kanban is described from both partly and holistic ways. It is decomposed into several components, which is described respectively. And the holistic Kanban is mainly reflected on its goal.This detailed description does a preparation for the evaluation and analysis. SWOT analysis is used as the main analysis tool.
