Click Production control > Setup > Lean manufacturing > Kanban rules. Select a rule that consists of multiple activities. On the Action Pane, click Choose kanban flow.

Use this form when you configure a manufacturing kanban rule that consists of multiple activities. You can generate kanban flows and assign a kanban flow to the rule. A kanban flow defines the sequence of activities for one or multiple kanban rules. When kanbans are created, kanban jobs and job due dates are generated based on the sequence of activities defined in the kanban flow.

When the form opens, all kanban flows that are used in other kanban rules are displayed. You can create additional valid flows by using the Generate flow function.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
