Rapid e-Kanban Deployment in Quality Digest Authored by TR Cutler


Ft. Lauderdale, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/01/2016 -- Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, recently highlighted a rapid deployment provided a solution for ITT Corporation in Quality Digest magazine. The article describes how the global leader has taken on this challenge with the help of supply chain technology innovation.

Recently ITT initiated a lean application based on the concept of Kanban loops that govern material flow and replenishment processes across their extended enterprise value chains. Kanban loops are a mechanism that signals the need for inventory replenishment, an important tool in ensuring production lines are optimally stocked with necessary parts and components. Kanban signals trigger material coordinators to deliver items in the right quantity when and where required. As product is consumed in the production process, an order for depleted inventory is placed immediately, either via a physical Kanban card or electronically through a computerized e-Kanban system.
