Kanban is a communication system that controls the flow of the shop, and synchronizes the level of production to customer demand.
Kanban is a visual system that allows everyone to see the flow, and to adjust to the level at which it is set. Kanban uses signals to determine when an operation should be started, and these signals can be cards, containers, emails or electronic notices.
Aptean Industrial Manufacturing ERP Kanban can be used effectively in circumstances where demand is relatively stable (plus or minus 10 to 30%), and operations are not shared on multiple product lines with variable demands. Quantities can exceed the lot size of one, which allows for some flexibility in the shop for unexpected events, but not enough to overload the shop with excessive inventory.
Kanban can be applied to the areas and products that you decide need it. Complete work-order less circuits can be designed from supplier to consumer to completely streamline your operation, including the functions below.
