How we ensure our 100% on-time delivery rate
Kanban logistics is a popular and lived model, which is based on a 2-container basic philosophy.
The temperature probes required for the production of a heating system, for example, are removed from container no. 1 until container no. 1 is empty, i.e. all temperature probes are installed.
Then container no. 2 is tightened and the temperature sensors that are still required are taken from this container no. 2.
At the same time, the now empty container No. 1 is filled with new goods by the supplier of the temperature sensors and is available in time, i.e. before all temperature sensors from container No. 2 have been completely installed.
A consignment warehouse consists of a storage space or storage area on the customer side, i.e. close to production. This warehouse holds temperature probes that have not been paid by the customer, i.e. legally and financially belong to the supplier. At any given time, the customer always takes as many temperature sensors as he needs for production (for example, for his heating systems) and reports the quantity taken regularly, typically once a month, to the supplier, who then issues a corresponding invoice.
Buffer warehouses are usually created in combination with a Kanban or consignment warehouse in order to reliably ensure the required 100% delivery reliability.
At the same time, buffer stores buffer fluctuating market requirements so that these fluctuations in demand do not directly affect the production of the temperature probes.
This would create a senseless rush and ultimately cause inefficiencies in the production processes.
