Supplier replenishment policy using E-Kanban: a framework for successful implementation.

  This paper provides generic implementation guidelines for an electronic supplier Kanban in the form of an eight-step implementation Framework. This has been tested, proven and realised, providing a clear process to follow. The steps provide a clear process from mapping and analysing the current situation, an analysis of potential suppliers with corresponding criteria, and an analysis of purchased items and bottlenecks in their use within the organisation. This includes a review of the types of Kanban, Kanban loop, supplier preparation for using the system and then the integration of processes to ensure success in its use. Operational issues are comprehensively covered, together with strategic aims and underlying problems that may impact upon success. The above approach can be used to both introduce new suppliers to the system and give assistance to other companies wishing to implement an e-supplier Kanban.
