Würth Industry North America (WINA), an industrial distributor of supply chain solutions for fasteners, MRO, and safety equipment, offers Kanban System — a point-of-use inventory system based on barcodes that provides a seamless, secure supply of C-parts when and where you need them.
This multi-bin system uses RFID technology and CPSGlobal state-of-the-art software to manage any inventory program proactively. Each bin movement is captured and documented, and the data is used to schedule deliveries, optimize stock levels, update statistical usage data, and more.
The flow of materials in a Kanban system is managed with two bins, each of which has a barcoded Kanban label or RFID tag — specifying the customer, storage location, item, bin, batch, and quantity in more detail.
Each bin movement is captured and documented, so that company’s receive information about the status of the system at any time. The data is used to schedule all assembly components or industrial supplies close to the point of use, to optimize stock levels and warehouse technology regularly, and to update statistical data.
At the same time, a variety of special parts, engineered parts, PPE, MRO, and specific commodity groups may be handled as effectively. The Kanban system ensures money is not wasted on parts that aren’t needed and, at the same time, that parts are available that are needed. This ensures production runs smoothly.
