The days of classical Kanban processes are over. Kanban cards made of paper that are used for manual replenishment belong to the past.
The WIBOND E-KANBAN system, an extension of the reliable pick-to-light system, sets the course for a paperless visual factory, completely in line with Industry 4.0.
Sensors determine whether a load carrier is in the desired position in the rack. If this is not the case, the e-kanban system sends a replenishment request signal directly to the higher-level IT system (WMS) in the distribution warehouse. In addition, the status of the replenishment request and thus the material flow can be displayed on an industrial monitor (e.g. WIBOND ProScreen) both in production and in the warehouse.
The templates for the e-kanban display are created using the ProView software.
This replenishment request process is also possible in combination with alternative hardware. The +/- buttons of the picking displays of the pick-to-light system or a barcode scanner for manual request can easily be integrated into the process.
A connection to your higher-level warehouse or production system - WMS or ERP - ensures an uninterrupted flow of information flow within the company. This gives you an overview of the demand situation in your EDP system beyond company boundaries.
The WIBOND e-kanban solution enables the complete control and display of the material flow in production as well as in the warehouse.
+/- buttons are freely programmable: Material request via push-button actuation possible
