Our study was motivated by the discussion on whether and how to implement kanban-like production control systems in semiconductor fabrication facilities. In this paper we investigate the impact of buffer allocation and batching strategy on the performance of a single-card kanban system. We extend the methodology presented by Mitra and Mitrani (1990) for the case of batch servers. We compare numerical approximations using our new algorithm with simulations of several configurations
