Pentagon 2000SQL incorporates Kanban functionality for powerful supply chain management
Pentagon 2000 Software, Inc., the leading provider of software solutions for the Aerospace, Defense and Electronics industries, is pleased to announce the release of its new Kanban module for supply chain management. The Kanban technique was developed long ago in Japan as a multiple bin replenishment system to allow a demand-driven manufacturing process to pull materials through the supply chain using cards to trigger resupply of the bins.
Pentagon 2000SQL software employs a modern electronic version of this classic technique that allows customers to fully automate and optimize the supply chain planning and execution process. The Pentagon 2000SQL Kanban module is a powerful tool that supports deployment of value added services such as Direct Line Feed (DLF), Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and Consignment programs. The Kanban module is fully integrated with the existing Contract Manager(TM), Consignment Manager(TM), KitMaster(TM), Speed Ship(TM) and Reporting features. Full device support for existing handheld PDA’s, barcode scanners and label printers is included and powerful automation can be obtained in conjunction with integrated BlueThunder(TM) application servers such as the Notifications and Alerts Server and the Automated Purchasing Server.
Deployment of Pentagon 2000SQL(TM) in conjunction with the Kanban feature can improve customer business operations by allowing end-to-end planning and control over the supply chain. To learn more about the new Pentagon2000SQL Kanban feature, please contact Pentagon 2000 Software, Inc.
