Kanban systems and Kanban principle

The highly flexible Kanban systems offered by Wurth Industry of Canada under the CPS®KANBAN service brand help you to make your warehouse and production effective and transparent. These Kanban systems are used predominantly by major industrial customers in the manufacture of their installations and products.

The most suitable solution for automatic replenishment is implemented, tailored to the particular item and to the individual work situation and requirements. Maximum availability of the right item in the right quantity in the right place at the right time in the production facility itself is always paramount.

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 demonstrates great potential for adjustment if requirements change, maximum delivery and supply security at reduced inventory levels and minimal capital commitment.

The flow of materials in Kanban systems from Wurth Industry of Canada is managed via two bins, each of which has a barcoded Kanban label or RFID tag, which specifies the customer, storage location, item, bin, batch and quantity in more detail.

Each bin movement is captured and documented, so that we can give you information about the status of your Kanban system at any time. This is enabled by Kanban management software as well as the barcoded labels or RFID tags.

The data is used to schedule all C-Parts close to the point of use, to optimise stock levels and warehouse technology regularly and to update statistical data. As a customer, you can also find all of the data using the CPS®GLOBAL information platform.

At the same time, a variety of special parts, parts designed as per drawings and specific commodity groups may be handled effectively. Our employees plan your specific, cost-optimized solution in consultation with all departments. We implement the system in cooperation with your company, and provide further support for product standardization of your C-Parts.
