Kanban process

Kanban system and principle

The principle of the Kanban system, which originated in Japan, is simple: it is a rolling two-bin system that, in contrast to traditional supply methodologies, provides C-Parts "just-in-time" directly at the point of use. The system demonstrates great potential for adjustment if requirements change, maximum delivery and supply security at reduced inventory levels and minimal capital commitment.

Different forms of optimal Kanban management

The most suitable solution for automatic replenishment is implemented, tailored to the particular item and to the individual work situation and requirements. Maximum availability of the right item in the right quantity in the right place at the right time in the production facility itself is always paramount.

RFID Kanban

RFID Kanban systems for supply management

RFID technology has found its way into an efficient value chain of manufacturing companies. With RFID Kanban, you can fully automate the procurement process and your reorders, manage inventory leanly, and identify demand fluctuations at an early point of time.

Digital and intelligent Kanban management

Higher complexity of logistics and production processes does not only lead to automated solutions, but also increases the need to make all working equipment available exactly where it is ultimately needed: on the shelf, at the storage location or directly at the production line. Our digital and intelligent solutions will help you to optimize your supply chain and make Lean Management or even Industry 4.0 a reality in your business.

Kanban bins

Kanban bins for safe storage

A wide range of items for production requires appropriate storage. Often, the production halls are crowded with shelves and usage of storage space is not very efficient. Our Würth small load carriers according to the VDA standard offer an effective alternative for your material flow.
