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.
The Kanban control cycle dimensioning offers you the following advantages:
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.
