Background

Organizations based on top-down planned processes often still rely on paper processes. As a consequence, the capability to implement real-time changes is limited. Complex planning of workflows and suboptimal work scheduling results in process inefficiencies, buffers and long waiting times:
- Inefficiencies in material management result in long waiting times for needed parts, high stock levels and lead times
- Paper-based Kanban approaches do not offer real-time visibility
