Classic Kanban process

Hi Experts,

Can u explain me the step by step procedure for classic kanban process.




Hi Richie,

In the classic KANBAN production control method, the demand source, the supply source and the procedure to be used to replenish the material are defined in the control cycle as well as the number of kanbans that circulate between the supply source and the demand source and the quantity per kanban.

In this classic KANBAN procedure, the kanban signal always only triggers replenishment for the kanban quantity defined in the control cycle. Moreover, you cannot circulate more kanbans than are defined in the control cycle without changing the control cycle first.

Refer below links for more details

Classic kanban is very straight forward. This is static in nature and you can create control cycle for the material which you want to process on kanban. Create supply area for the material in particular storage location and process the execution. Below are some of transactions

PK01/PK02/PK03 - Kanban control cycle creation, change and disply

PK05 - Supply area

PK13N/PK13 - Kanban board

PKBC - Control cycle

Check in sap help link for more details, and if you have any specific doubts , repost the queries.

Best regards,
