KANBAN replenishment with Summerized JIT call is a big topic that needs setting up configuration, master data & flow of information thru EDI.
In brief, the attached figure describes the flow of information taking place from Manufacturing to Suppliers. The information here is the requirement (example Forecast Delivery Schedule or JIT calls).
The first section shows FRC (Forecast Delivery schedule) that is sent from Production Plant to suppliers (vendor, sub-vendor etc) through MRP run. The production plant creates PIR for materials in advance and runs MRP. Ther PIRs are generally created for longer period of time (lets say 12 months). MRP generates forecast delivery Schedule in scheduling agreement that are sent to Suppliers as FRC (forecast).
At the time of exact requirement, for material staging, systems generates JIT call via KANBAN or "Pull List" against forecast schedules. The supplier creates a delivery based on the incoming summarized JIT call and goods are suppied to production plant based on those deliveries.
All this message transmission take place though EDI (Electronic Data Interexchange) that are managed by Message Output settings in SAP.
Hope it helps.
