eKANBAN Solution – optimizes production processes

eKANBAN Solution by ToP Tunniste is completely new intelligent solution created for workflow planning and visualization: an electronic Kanban board, which is monitored via cloud-based application. The solution enhances product processes by combining the Kanban and RFID technologies in a new innovative way. eKANBAN optimizes production processes according to Lean philosophy.

FUNCTIONALITY

The eKANBAN board is located in the production and a card is attached to the board for each of the open work phase or material needed in the production. The data in the card is red through RFID technology and reported to eKANBAN system, which can be used for monitoring the open work phases or need for a certain material in the production.

When the work phase is started, the card is transferred from the board to e.g. a trolley, which travels in the production during the whole work phase. When the card is removed from the eKANBAN board, it will also exit from the open tasks in the eKANBAN system. The trolley movements in the production can be followed via the eKANBAN system. When the material is produced or the work phase is finished, the card is returned to be used again. When there is a need for more material, the card will be placed to eKANBAN board again.

CONNECTIVITY

The eKANBAN system can be integrated to client’s information systems, like ERP or MES. Automatic timers can be attached to eKANBAN system, to express e.g. when the card has been placed to the board or how long the production will run unless a certain component is produced more. The reports can be available for the whole organization and the clients, when needed.
