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.

Different forms of optimal Kanban management

We implement the most suitable solution for automatic replenishment at your site, tailored to your required items and to your individual work situation and requirements. We focus on maximum availability of the right item in the right quantity in the right place at the right time.
