FlowVision introduces LYNX The Cost-Effective Software Solution that Brings Statistical Kanban™ to Your Lean Facility
Your MRP system has limitations. It doesn't readily support your Lean facility. It doesn't support Statistical Kanban™ strategies. It does’t drive your inventory levels to ensure your strategic customer-service levels. In fact, your organization may not have an MRP system at all.
You know a kanban pull system is the correct methodology for managing materials, but traditional kanban has its faults. Kanban works best when there are visible signals. Historically, there has been no easy way to adjust kanban sizes. To date, kanban-sizing techniques has worked only if demand for your products is constant.
There is a true need for kanban to be improved. Kanban needs to be:
- Electronic – signals to do work are generated via a computer, not an empty bin
- Dynamic – automatically resized as business conditions change
- Statistical – calculates inventory levels to ensure your customer service levels are met
You have made the commitment to be a Lean organization, but you don’t have all the tools to sustain your implementation.
Using FlowVision’s proprietary mathematical algorithms, LYNX enables your company to manage the inventory within your four walls. Delivered as a perpetual site license, LYNX is a cost-effective solution for companies of limited size, and for major corporations that are beginning their lean journey.
