Restaurant Simulation Kanban


How would you visualize the value stream of a restaurant?



A great teaching example for a team wishing to start Kanban.




How do you like to visualize the concurrent activities of beverage service and meal preparations?  I like to see them stacked (not sequential).

Hat tip to Derek Wade of Kumdio Adaptive Strategies for the simulation.

This Kanban works very well for the front of the house, but what about the back of the house (the kitchen in restaurant lingo)?  What would the kitchen's kanban board look like?
