I am trying to create Electronic Kanban within Tulip tables.
Unlike traditional Kanban which normally involves only 1 process within the loop, I need to make a loop with several different processes.
This will involve some type of routing as depending on the product it will go through different processes.
Scenario is parts are normally kept on RM shelf. (we manufacture these parts in house).
This hits a certain level and a Kanban card gets marked as “Empty” (which updates in a Tulip table) by an operator, and gets assigned to the correct process.
Part001 This part needs to be cut to length, laser marked, and put back onto RM shelf.
Part002. This part needs to be machined, polished, laser marked and put onto RM shelf.
Part 003. This part needs to be machined and put onto RM shelf.
I want to have a screen for each process (one for machining, one for cutting etc) so they can only see the relevant jobs. When they complete the job, the job needs to go to the next relevant process based on a routing of some kind.
How can I attach a routing to each part so that the operator does not have to select the next process manually, as this leads to errors?
Appreciate any input people may have as I’m scratching my head over this one
