PFEP eKanban

You can't improve what you can't measure. Start capturing statistics, and recieving performance alerts, on the efficiency and operation of your Kanban system today!

Proplanner's PFEP eKanban system tracks the pull of empty containers and the replenishment of full containers within a manual Kanban system.  With eKanban, engineers can see the min, max, and average part replenishment time, as well as the number of times each container has cycled during the past shift, day, week, etc.  In addition, the system can automatically print new labels for each container replenishment (to support non-returnable Kanban containers), or it can request containers from supermarkets located at vendor sites anywhere in the world. 

The app fully supports remote supermarket locations, so that you can alert suppliers in different sites, immediately when the empty container is pulled from the line. With this system, full containers will often arrive at the line, before the empties even make it back to the supplier!  In addition, part shortages in Kanban replenishment are alerted immediately, while there is still time to correct the problem - before the line shuts down!

Reduced replenishment cycle time by 66%, lineside inventory by 84%, and part shortages by over 98% over that of manually-implemented Kanban.
