The basic Kanban principles - important facts in a nutshell
What is Kanban?
The term Kanban derives from the Japanese and means "card" or "sign"
In 1947, Toyota developed the KANBAN system as a method for organising just-in-time production. The procedure is guided solely by the actual consumption of materials at the place of provision or consumption.
The reason why it was necessary to make changes to the production process is that productivity was relatively low compared to American competition at the time and inventories were costly to maintain.
KANBAN can be easily understood based on the eyample of the "milk run" or the "milkman principle", which guided the work of English milkmen even before the system was applied to industrial production.

Since these early days, the method has undergone constant improvement. "Pull" principles emerged with future-oriented overall concepts for logistics.
For 25 years, ENGEL has offered KANBAN systems as your C-Parts partner, and now more than ever they are tailored to your individual requirements!
