Lean Manufacturing

Use Kanban scheduling for pull-based replenishment.

Plex's Kanban scheduling supports your lean manufacturing initiatives with the same visible card system popularized by the Toyota Production System to support “pull-based” demand.

Kanban Scheduling

  • Kanban scheduling augments or replaces MRP scheduling for optimizing the flow of high-volume, repetitive parts
  • Present Kanban cards to operators via their Control Panel as a signal to authorize production
  • Maintain number of Kanban cards for each part
