Pb with number of entities in Kanban Buffer

Pioneer

Hello

 

I would like to put in Kanban Buffer Entity from Source (not Kanban Source).

When Kanban Buffer request for Entity GetPartData window opened (source code encrypted)

 

How to have a model with Kanban Buffer drived by Kanban Single Proc (simulation of a command of product A) and Product A is coming from source pushed to the Kanban buffer.

In this case the min and max of the buffer are not active (I have all the time more entities than max level in the buffer) What is missing to have this max and min levels available ?

 

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Christelle

Hello Christelle,

 

The KanbanBuffer always checks the number of parts at stock when moving parts out of the buffer. If current stock reaches the minimum stock, parts will be ordered at the preceding Kanabn object which you defined in the KanbanBuffer. This may be a KanbanBuffer again or a KanbanSource.

 

If you want to use a normal source object to create the parts, you will run into trouble, because the source creates any arbitrary part and not the parts the KanbanBuffer needs. This fills the buffer and leads to a blocking behavior. The maximum capacity of the KanbanBuffer is calculated by the sum of the maximum stock for each part.

 

Hope this helps.
