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 can be easily adjusted if requirements or volume changes, simultaneously ensuring maximum delivery and supply security with reduced inventory levels and minimal capital commitment.

Our solutions for optimal Kanban control

The most suitable Kanban service solution for automatic replenishment is implemented, tailored to the respective items and the individual work situation and requirements. In all cases, the focus is on maximum availability of the right article in the right quantity at the right place and at the right time directly in production. With our diverse portfolio, we offer tailor-made systems that increase the efficiency of your company and optimize the material flow.
