Seiban is the name of a Japanese management practice taken from the Japanese word “sei” which means manufacturing and “ban” which means number. A Seiban number is assigned to all parts, materials and purchase orders associated with a particular customer job or with a project, or anything else. This enables a manufacturer ti track everything with a particular product, project or customer. It also facilitates setting aside inventory for specific projects or priorities. That makes it great for project and build-to-order manufacturing.
