Electric vehicles (VE) have become more common since 2014 and have been the future of the automotive industry. These are superior vehicles because they are more effective, easier to maintain, cleaner and cheaper to operate. These are computerized machines that use AI to improve security and which, in the near future, will provide autonomous driving. They receive software upgrades during their lifetime and improve constantly, unlike their traditional combustion engine counterparts, who are starting to become obsolete as soon as you start to use them.
In Kanban EV, you will supervise the production of these vehicles. With "Kanban" (看板) being the name of a planning system that supports an effective mounting chain, just-to-time production and a fluid workflow process. Throughout the game, players play the role of beginner employees trying to secure their careers. You must manage suppliers and supplies, improve and innovate car parts, and put your hands on the mounting chain to stimulate production and impress the factory director. You must make a good use of recycling installations and limited factory supplies in order to appropriate the parts when suppliers are not up to it. Because the factory must work with optimal efficiency, production does not await you or does not deceive you. Sandra, the factory director, will examine your performance and keep the factory on the tempo.
Kanban EV is a game on the management of resources and time that puts you in the driver's headquarters of a whole production installation, the race for factory objectives and the highest level of promotion. You earn production points (PP) for having carried out various actions in the game, and the player with the most PP at the end of the game wins.
