Pull systems, also known as kanban (coming from the Japanese words kan , which means card , and ban which means signal ), ensure that production and material requirements are based on actual customer demand rather than on inevitably inaccurate forecasting tools. A kanban signal, which can be a card, empty squares on the floor for bins, lights, or a computer software generated signal, triggers the movement, Read More...
SAP RFID Technology in the Automotive Industry
By using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, automotive companies can eliminate material shortfalls of containers, which lead to delivery delays

For example, traditionally, given competitive realities, it was almost exclusively automotive companies that deployed lean techniques such as kanban and sequencing. Today, however, there are some strong indications that only one in five companies using kanban are in the automotive industry. This is Part Six of a multi-part note. Customarily, lean endeavors lead Read More...
