Our kanban program helps us eliminate manufacturing lead-time, leaving only transit time. If you project a steady demand for the next 12-18 months, we will help you develop a kanban purchase order for an agreed-upon number of releases. Once you’ve placed the order, we establish the release quantities, manufacture it and place it in storage until you request a release. Every time we ship material, we create an internal order to replace it, so we will always have material ready to ship for you.
Not only does setting up a part on kanban save you time, it also keeps your lines running without worry of downtime. If you have a steady running part, we can maintain the number of releases requested. So as soon as you receive an order and have a need for material, you just need to request a kanban release. We will ship your materials within 24 hours.
Minimum order value of $450.00 per shipment and the order quantity be used within 12-18 months. For more information about our kanban program, contact a Fort Wayne Metals representative.
