A post-Corona, field-driven system – The Kanban Method and Scheduler【Production Management System 30-minute short webinar】


Today's webinar is titled "A post-Corona, field-driven system" and I would like to propose an approach to production management after the corona epidemic that successfully combines the pull-type kanban system, which is good at adjusting production onsite, and the push-type scheduler, which issues production instructions based on demand.


Production Control

Why is it said that the Kanban system does not require production planning?


The pull-type kanban system, which operates autonomously on the shop floor by taking only the required quantity of items from the front-end process and producing only the quantity that is in short supply, is said to be in direct contrast to the MRP production plan that is created by the management organization using a push-type system.


Production Control

Division of roles between the Kanban system and the scheduler


The Kanban system, which is the core of the Toyota Production System, is a system of operation at the manufacturing site to produce the orders received. Since only the "number of Kanban" (number of Kanban x number of units) required by the back-end process is produced by the own process, the flow rate of the Kanban can be fine-tuned to prevent overproduction in case of order cancellation.


Production Control

Paperlessness and IoT accelerated by corona pandemic


We have argued in our blog and at regular seminars in industrial parks that paperlessness is the first thing Japanese companies in Indonesia need to do to improve their business.


Production Control

Installation of a suitable system for the Indonesian plant


In Japan, the introduction of a manufacturing system tends to involve high cost customization to add advanced functions to meet the demands of management, but in Indonesia, within a limited budget, customization is required to make it easier for on-site workers to enter information and to save labor.

Implementation of Manufacturing IoT in Indonesia


When I visited customers in industrial parks in Indonesia as part of my system sales activities, one of the lines I often heard from people in charge was, "Our president (the chairman) invests positively in machinery, but is reluctant to invest in systems.


Production Control

Manufacturing system to be reorganized with a focus on the field


We had a booth to introduce Asprova, a production scheduler, at Manufacturing Indonesia 2019, Indonesia's largest manufacturing trade show, which will be held at the annual JIExpo Kemayoran from December 4 to 7.


Production Control

Seminar on operational efficiency and visualization in factories for the manufacturing industry


Total optimization is when production efficiency is maximized, interest rates due to price costs and inventory are minimized, and profits are maximized.


Production Control

Think of systemization as a process of business improvement, not an investment


In general, the implementation of a business system using packaged software requires large initial investment costs for software, DB licenses, new servers, etc.

Indonesia Customs Strengthens Online Monitoring of Bonded Factories


Bonded is "a temporary deferral of the collection of customs duties" and the bonded area in Indonesia is called Kawasan Berikat (KB or Kaber) and the non-bonded area is called Daerah Pabean Indonesia Lainnya (DPIL).


Production Control

Proposal for Japanese companies in Indonesia who are having trouble with their business systems


A company's business is determined by what it provides for the needs of the market, and how it interacts with customers and suppliers for that business, and how its internal staff relates to it, determines how it works internally. We recommend that you implement the management function with HanaFirst business template and Asprova scheduler for the planning part, and we think that this is the best practice that we can propose to Japanese companies in Indonesia.

"Making Indonesia 4.0" era business system


In the manufacturing industry, we purchase raw materials, add value by processing them and sell them to customers, and in the service industry, we provide services as added value to customers' requests.

System Implementation Methodology for Indonesia


Why don't they explain it to us until we are satisfied?" is a phrase I have heard many times in the field of system implementation in Indonesia. Although systemization is done as a means to improve the current business, the system implementation project in Indonesia will not proceed well unless it is properly presented that "the results from the system can be seen through the process".


Production Control

Difference between production order and KANBAN of planned production


When we visit Japanese trading companies and manufacturers in Indonesia and ask them about their business requirements for system implementation, most of them tell us that they receive "Kanban" from the customer every morning, which corresponds to the delivery instructions for sub-payment of fixed orders received at the beginning of the month.


Production Control

Understanding the entire business system from an accounting perspective


When the inventory based on the actual input in the production control system is in the production control location, the outflow is an incurred expense and the inflow is recorded in the asset account as work in process inventory, but when the inventory is in the sales control location, the inflow is the cost of production and the outflow is recognized as cost of sales.


Production Control

Until the production control system specifications were finalized in Indonesia and the system was put into operation in the field


The production management system covers production activities from the time a material arrives at the material warehouse to the time it is processed in the manufacturing process, and sales activities after the product warehouse. The cost management system manages a series of cost flows: material costs and processing costs are incurred at the time a material is put into the manufacturing process, and are turned into manufacturing costs at the time it becomes a product, and are turned into sales costs at the time it is shipped.


Production Control

Time based utilization and stroke based load factor


The load factor is the ratio of demand to the supply capacity of the machine, and is the ratio of the number of strokes required to complete the order to the number of strokes per hour (GSPH) in press work. The utilization rate, on the other hand, is the ratio of operating hours to the operating hours of the machine, which is the ratio of the operating hours needed to digest the order to the operating hours of the day.


Production Control

Handling of multiple pieces and left and right sets


In the case of RL products, two pieces of the same item can be taken in a single shot, so if only one order is taken, the relationship is 1:1 (either the left or right is more than 1), but if the same number of orders are taken in both the left and right, the relationship is 2:1, which is the same as for multiple orders.


Production Control

Paid and free supply to subcontractors


However, the P/O price issued to the subcontractor includes material cost and processing cost only in the case of paid supply and processing cost only in the case of free supply.


Production Control

What is the difference between the month of VAT tax treatment and the month of purchase recording?


In the case of Indonesian domestic transaction, the month of Faktur pajak should be the same as the month of invoice date, but this means that taxation should be done in the month of invoice date.
