I can't comment on the firm, but the approach is a good starting point for calculating your Kanbans is with capacity lot sizing http://www.synchronousmanagement.com/cls.html

In a true JIT system, there is no WIP, only raw materials and finished goods. (RIP is the raw in process.)

In this type of system, you should only have one board at each work station, with possibly some assemblies in kanbans in between stations.

Even if you issue the raw materials to a floor location, then your WIP could be calculated as the difference between your backflushed finished product and the raw.
