Realisation Possibilities of Kanban with Channel Planner V
WEIGANG’s planning board system Channel Planner V is equipped with flexibly, self-clamping tracks for the intake of Kanban cards. A stable frame borders the Channel Planner-boards. Due to the modular design of the planning board, a later extension is possible at any time. The accessories of the planning board Channel Planner V enables an easily recognisable and clearly presented arrangement of information: Barrier strips reduce or bar the width of the tracks to a width predetermined by the operator. That way only the the desired amount of cards can be placed into every track. Yellow and red marking clamp strips are used for the visual definition of the Kanban status areas “Start” and “Urgent”.
Implementing Kanban-Control with Cascading Display Comparament
The grip vision is a modular system of metal pockets. Through a simple, imbricated set up of the single elements, a robust Kanban planning board is created. If that is what you want, we produce distinct, customer specific solutions and offer individual colour schemes.
Designing Kanban with Pocket Systems
The WEIGANG document pockets ensure that Kanban cards are reliably and neatly attached to products and containers. The transparent pocket is solidly fused to the rigid film on the rear wall. Thereby, it can be reused again over a long period of time and many cycles. In order to securely attach the document pockets to practically any kind of container, pallet cage, cardboard, or packages, WEIGANG offers a selection of different attachment options. Pockets in various formats are available for individual customer requirements. Please discuss your wishes with us!
Rules for Implementation
A great effect can be achieved through the correct handling and consequent implementation of Kanban. Implementation is sensible, for example, in cases of very fast or very slow cycle times, high set-up times, particularly distant delivery processes, or processes strongly susceptible to faults. Kanban reduces inventory and improves quality. This system ensures that only those things are produced that are necessary, and exactly when it is necessary.
The five steps of a Kanban Implementation are:
1. Analysis and process selection
2. Determination of Kanban-rules
3. Selection of the Kanban-type
4. Planning and dimensioning
5. Creation of the cards and organisational tools
The eight most important Kanban-Rules:
1. There is one Kanban-card for every pocket
2. The Kanban-card works as a production instruction, when an item is removed
3. The customer process gets the necessary items
4. The parts are retrieved from the production sequence
5. Only the amount of items that has been retrieved is produced
6. Missing items must be produced as quickly as possible
7. Kanban-cards are produced in the department where they will be used
8. The supply process is responsible for the quality of its items and must immediately turn off flaws
