Businesses Working with an Aerospace Manufacturer Skilled in Kanban Can Enjoy a Number of Benefits
When you’re considering an aerospace manufacturer for contract work, consider their experience with Kanban. Kanban is one of the most effective ways to schedule manufacturing for just-in-time delivery, as it relies on downstream demand to trigger production. Many businesses rely on Kanban. It can get complex in the aerospace supply chain.
Some aerospace companies rely on digital Kanban cards passed through ERP/MRP systems to connect with their contractors. A contract aerospace manufacturer should not only have the infrastructure needed to accept these Kanban cards, but also the ability to balance production schedules to meet demand from multiple parts programs. Using Kanban and other tools to forecast demand allows manufacturers to schedule machine time efficiently. For clients, this means shorter lead times and deliveries in line with JIT to lower inventory costs.
