Eppendorf Liquid Handling GmbH, located in Hamburg (Germany), has replaced the existing software tool that has supported the Kanban processes in the past by the IKS system of manufactus. The own developed software got old and support got more and more complicated. So Eppendorf has decided to use the modern IKS eKanban system in the future.
Especially the internal production scheduling processes will be supported by a “traffic-light Kanban process”. Therefore the operators are using the electronic IKS Kanban Board which offers a dynamic visualization of inventory levels and open Kanban orders.
By using IKS the customer has created a solid platform for continuous improvement and extension of the Pull processes in the future!
