It is correct that there are 2 ways of creating control cycles for materials.

One is thru Kanban way and the other is regular WM way of control cycles.Here for WM control cycles again, it is just the way of driving materials to particular supply area while in kanban, the control cycle is driven with kanban signals.

If you want to define Kanban, you need to identify first what way you would want the replenishment to occur.

There are two options, classic and even driven Kanban replenishment. In the former one, the replenishment is triggered thru kanban signal in kanban board and replenishment quantity is equal to what is mentioned in control cycle.

In a event driven kanban, replenishment is triggered the same way but the quanity of replenishment can differ.

Classic KANBAN:

Quantity of material (target quantity) that is specified for a kanban.

Event-driven KANBAN:

Proposed value for the quantity of material in a kanban that is used by the system when no order quantity is entered at a kanban signal.
