  One of the efforts in a pull system to meet the final goal of Just-In-Time is reducing Work-In-Process (WIP) without reducing throughput rate an service level. This paper proposes a new hybird control policy using extended Kanban, Generalized Kanban and CONWIP to form the final construction of production plan. Simulation of a 3-stage case study with probabilistic parameters showed the reduction of inventory level with acceptable service quality. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is implemented for the evaluation and verification of the proposed model. The result obtained indicates that the proposed model is quite efficient and applicable to solve real world problems.
