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.

 

Empty milk bottles at the front door are replaced by an equal number of full bottles in an established
delivery rhythm.

PUNCTUAL, DEMAND-BASED,
COST-EFFICIENT!

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!

C-parts - small, but expensive!
Effectively lower costs for procurement,
planning and logistics!

 

The procurement costs of C-parts are usually disproportionately high compared to the value of the goods. The needs assessment, ordering, storage, management, control and internal goods movement often produce 80% of the costs, only 20% is attributable to the material value.

You gain resources for your core business!

1. Analysis of the current situation

The framework for Kanban management will be examined and recorded on-site. We focus on your existing logistics and customer-specific requirements and structures.

2. Discussion and development

Then our specialised staff work out ideas and suggestions on what an ideal C-parts system might look like. You can rely here on the experience we have gained in over 25 years of Kanban practice in different companies and industries.

3. Transition into practice

Once a tailor-made has been provided and the range of items to be managed has been determined, only the shelves have to be set up and they can start receiving the containers that are ready to use.


 

Of course, we are always on hand for our C-parts partners and always provide you with advice and assistance. This allows us to continuously optimise the system and connection in your company together with you and expand your success in the long term.
