Optimum supply of material through periodic dimensioning of the Kanban control cycles in SAP

The Kanban control cycle dimensioning of Wassermann AG is a supplemental solution for automatically calculating the number of Kanban cards in the control cycles in SAP ECC.

Functional advantages and technical flow

Functional advantages and technical flow of the Kanban control cycle dimensioning: Mapping of various computation methods. Dynamic determination of the calculation parameters for in-house production time and batch size. Taking consumptions into account an
Calculation of the number of Kanban cards using Kanban control cycle dimensioning: The first step is about input. The SAP control cycles or the Z table must be maintained. In the second step the range will be limited and the calculation parameters will beCalculation of the number of Kanban cards using Kanban control cycle dimensioning

Your benefits for the processes

The Kanban control cycle dimensioning offers you the following advantages:

The advantages of the Kanban control cycle dimensioning: High flexibility in the computation logic. Taking fluctuations into account. Workload reduction for employees. Optimization of the material flow.

High flexibility in the computation logic: The computation logic must be compatible with the processes of the company and coordinated with the various areas. Only this way is it possible to achieve an optimum result and to convince the employees. Furthermore, the automatic Kanban dimensioning is also possible if, because of various reasons, the Kanban control cycles in SAP have not been maintained.

Taking fluctuations into account: Kanban systems play an increasingly important role in the supply of material; they may not be too inflexible, however. Consumption and requirements inconsistencies, but also changes in the throughput times and batch sizes, must be input into the Kanban dimensioning.

Workload reduction for employees: The employees' work effort is reduced because, for example, the program can automatically perform the computation overnight. In addition, the prioritization of the suggestions is eased by a traffic light function in the list.

Optimization of the material flow: The supply of material becomes more reliable, because the material that is actually required is available. This means fewer supply bottlenecks, less WIP and a smoothed stabilization throughout the supply chain. This feature also makes it possible to convert materials – which at first glance might not seem suitable – to Kanban, with minimal time and effort expended.

That´s why you need the Kanban control cycle dimensioning: Support in handling the prevailingly practiced push/pull mix. Transparent and trackable results. Optimization of the material flow and WIP.
