Grounded in lean manufactur-

process originally introduced by the
Toyota Motor Co. to improve pro-

A kanban contains information
on the part or component tracked
in inventory and the point at which
to reorder. Manufacturers using
an electronic kanban (e-kanban)
system scan parts or components
as they are received into inventory
and again as they are consumed.
E-kanban software aligns inventory
levels with real-time consumption,
sending demand signals to suppliers to replenish parts as needed.
These signals are tracked through
the replenishment cycle, bringing
visibility to both the manufacturer
and its supplier.
