Cloud Kanban

Software-as-a-Service in the Cloud

With the supply management of C-parts in the cloud, camLine presents a new and innovative solution that is already being in use by two screw manufacturers to monitor their Kanban supply cycles. As business logic has been commonly found so far in locally implemented infrastructure solutions only, camLine now offers this as a powerful cloud service, more specifically as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The advantages are obvious and address on the one part cost-effectiveness and, on the other, significant time savings during commissioning:

  • You pay only for the actual service used (pay-per-use, metered services)
  • There are no costs for software licensing or for needed hardware
  • You can make use of the service right away, there are no implementation times
  • Fixed costs for infrastructure and related system administration, backups, etc. are needless

Timely logistics management of C-parts using RFIDs in combination with a cloud service

C-parts are of secondary importance for the final product. Nevertheless, these parts are indispensable in the production. For C-parts manufacturers, their supply cycle costs are essential relative to their production costs. camLine supports C-parts manufacturers with a C-parts management in the cloud, by means of which the entire Kanban supply cycle is promptly captured as follows:

  • As a C-parts manufacturer, you get seamless monitoring of all your supply routes
  • You will be well informed on the fastest route
  • You get comprehensive reports of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
  • The monitoring system itself is subject to an availability monitoring
  • The cloud service communicates with your ERP system and is both, flexible and upgradeable
Cloud C-Parts Management

In a development project within the period of three months, the cloud service of camLine was brought to product maturity in cooperation with Xedion AG, a supplier of Kanban solutions using innovative RFID technologies. The resulting C-parts management is already in operation at Dresselhaus, a screw manufacturer. Here are some advantages:

  • Shipment tracking
  • Tracking and monitoring
  • Sources of error are reduced
  • Simplified receipt of goods
  • Optimization of staffing costs
  • Can be integrated into subsequent processes
  • Delivery frequencies become more flexible and are reduced
  • Prompt, automatic order release
  • Reduction of manual processes
  • Barcode and RFID reader-combination
