Kanban is a concept related to lean and just-in-time (JIT) production. Kanban is a signaling system to trigger action. As its name suggests, kanban historically uses cards to signal the need for an item.
Hurst Green Plastics Ltd have embraced this theory to offer a true Kanban system for your storage and dispensing. When the bins are empty, the user simply pulls the slider to drop down a reserve stock. The upper bin can be clearly identified for replenishment and re-ordered. Importantly, there are no stock-outs and manufacturing can continue.
With the new FlagBin™ dispenser, this identification of stock levels is very clear. You can see exactly what level the bins are in without having to check.
Green = reserve chamber of TwinBin full of product
Red = Reserve chamber has been emptied
Red/Yellow = Reserve chamber has been re-ordered
Green = Reserve chamber has been refilled and the process can continue
The RFID TagBin™ can automatically provide the re-order status and ML Systems' powerful software can interpret and action each individual bins without the user physically checking the bins.
