The system will be used in operation to support the existing Kanban processes. Companies from different business sectors are using this E-Kanban benefits to optimize their logistic processes and the existing Supply-Chain.

IKS enables a fast, efficient and successful optimization of the exting Kanban systems. Objective is the support of the Kanban processes, a perfect visualization and the contiuous improvement of the Kanban parameters.

IKS can be used to implement a Kanban system from the beginning, but also to support extensive Kanban environments. During the development of the IKS system, the benefits of manual Kanban systems have been taken and improved continuously.

IKS can be used for the following user groups:

E-Kanban 4.0

IKS is also the central digital module, to connect the Kanban processes, the new hardware and the existing IT-systems and to generate a continuous and stable information flow.

The classic Toyota-Kanban was version 1.0. By using a Kanban software, “Kanban 2.0” has been generated out of it and new possibilities to design more state-of-the-art Pull processes had been created. By the interaction of the existing IT-systems as well as by the usage of new shop-floor hardware, new continuous information flows had been created in the area of production and logistic.

The Integrated Kanban System (IKS) allows a more efficient usage of the existing manual Kanban system, paves the way for a continuous interaction of the different software and hardware modules and integrates the existing Pull process to 100% – we call it “KANBAN 4.0”!
