Kanban Manufacturing System for Inventory Management

Kanban is a Just in Time (JIT) manufacturing system introduced by Japanese manufacturing companies to optimize inventory management. It is also known as the Two Bin System. The basic principle of Kanban is – “Produce or Buy only what is needed and when it is needed”

Manual Vs Electronic Kanban System

In a traditional manual Kanban  process, the signal is managed manually. When a bin becomes empty, a manual signal like email or a phone call is made to the supplier to start the replenishment process. But in an electronic version, a bar code is scanned  to trigger the signal to supplier automatically.

In an Electronic Kanban system, all cards are maintained electronically. There will be printed copies of the Kanban card but there is a central system maintaining the cards. Barcoded Kanban cards are scanned as soon as it becomes empty. This will trigger an instantaneous replenishment message to the supplier so that material can be shipped right away instead of waiting for the physical bin to reach them.

Barcoded system with Mobile Apps and a Cloud Portal

In the electronic Kanban process, all the bins are bar coded with a bin card. Mobile apps on IOS and Android devices are used to scan empty bins to indicate that it needs to be replenished. A cloud portal tracks movement of the Kanban cards and provides reconciliation.

Industries that Benefit from E-Kanban

Any industry that manages inventory will benefit greatly by introducing the E-Kanban system. Manufacturing companies, hospitals, super markets, retailers, warehouses – all can implement a Kanban system to optimize inventory.
