Poralu Marine, located in Port (France), is one of the world leaders in the field of docks and marina equipment.
The company has implemented our electronic Kanban system IKS (description en francais: Système Kanban électronique) to support their pull processes to external suppliers. The IKS system will send Kanban signals to the vendors automatically when the Kanbans has been consumed.
The objectives of the e-Kanban project are:
• Higher material availability
• Optimized inventory levels
• Shorter supplier lead-times
By starting this project Poralu Marine did the first steps to implement a real Pull system. Additional Kanban loops are planned for further internal and external Kanban processes.
