Redis Pub/Sub in action

To see how Redis Pub/Sub may be used within an application context, we'll look at modeling a simple Kanban manufacturing setup that involves three stations in the construction of a toy airplane in an imaginary factory at the North Pole: Elves Mfg. Inc. Kanban is a management philosophy and a set of techniques that was first developed and popularized by Toyota Manufacturing in the construction of automobiles that showed drastic improvement in quality and reliability over the past fifty years. Based on Toyota's success with lean manufacturing, the practices and philosophy surround Kanban spread to other manufacturers in Japan – particularly suppliers and other companies supporting Toyota – and spread across the world. By the early 2000s, lean manufacturing has become accepted and used in a wide range of manufacturing, service, governmental, and non-profit organizations to improve the quality of their products and services under tight budget constraints.
