What is Kanban?
Kanban is an inventory replenishment application that facilitates accurate, timely communication between warehouses and work centers, ensuring that needed materials are delivered on time and replenished only as needed based on demand. The application makes it possible for manufacturers to track inventory levels and movement in real time from pick to delivery, creating efficiency and allowing businesses to stay lean while meeting their most unique challenges.
What Sets Kanban Apart
Kanban is designed to shorten lead times and reduce inventory levels at every stage of the process. It pulls inventory and delivers materials when signaled by work centers based on electronic Kanban cards that track replenishment needs. This allows manufacturers to reduce inventory, storage, and maintenance costs, replenishing only the materials being used in order to keep operations as lean as possible.
Kanban replenishment solutions are easily implemented with Oracle SCM Cloud. Using Oracle SCM Cloud subinventory and locations, it displays production usage in real-time and complies with a warehouse’s replenishment rules in order to manage additional stock. When card items are provided by suppliers, Kanban can ensure items are purchased based on rules set in Oracle SCM Cloud.

It supports FEFO, fixed picking options, and has the ability to be configured using totes, virtual cards, barcoded cards, and physical bins as needed. Users can set priority based on subinventory or organization, and picking can be prioritized across subinventories by the app itself.
