Manufacturing eKanban software is a signaling system that drives the movement of materials within a manufacturing, assembly or warehousing facility.
It monitors consumption and replenishment across every facet of the manufacturing cycle, gaining valuable information to automatically right-size inventory levels, heal performance problems and reduce waste.
For many, this method delivers quick, significant inventory savings while providing a distinct competitive advantage.
Orbital ATK, a global leader in aerospace and defense technologies, implemented a new Lean project at its Clearfield, Utah location with the primary goal of reducing the amount of inventory in the factory.
In working toward accomplishing this goal, the $4.4B aerospace and defense manufacturer decided to pilot the use of an eKanban system in their Aerospace Structures Division (ASD).
ASD is a global market leader in the manufacture of mission-critical composite structures for the aerospace and defense industries.
