Lean Manufacturing (LM) has been widely known to reduce the seven wastes in manufacturing industries. However, there are few training tools to help lean practitioner in learning and experimenting the LM tools and techniques as they are costly and difficult to create. This research aims is to built a platform for the lean practitioner to learn and experiment with the general Kanban system, by developing Kanban Simulation Training Tool System (K-STTS). K-STTS contains two modules, General Kanban Simulation Module (GKS-module) to deliver Kanban theory by using simulation approach and General Kanban Calculator Module (GKC-module) to help the lean practitioner in Kanban calculation. Arena 14 simulation software and Visual Basic 6 were used to develop the two module respectively. A feasibility study was conducted to assess K-STTS feasibility in terms of user interface aesthetics, operability, learnability and functional suitability. Both module are feasible to be used by lean practitioner, however operability and learnability of GKS-module need a improvisation. Future works include creating simulation based on real scenarios and other LM training tools platform to enhance user’s experience on LM tools.
