Kanban: The smart method to optimise your production processes
The highly flexible Kanban systems offered by Würth Industrie Service under our CPS® KANBAN service brand help you to make your warehouse and production effective and transparent. Kanban systems are used to supply indirect materials – mainly by major industrial customers for the manufacturing of machines and products as well as for other production processes.
Learn more about how the Kanban principle, Kanban systems, RFID systems and related solutions from Würth Industrie Service help you to optimise your production processes.
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.
RFID Kanban systems for supply management
RFID technology has found its way into the value chain of efficient manufacturing companies. With RFID Kanban, you can fully automate the procurement process and your reorders, manage inventory in a lean way, and identify demand fluctuations at an early point of time.
