Multi Level Work In Process KanBan Buffer for High Volume Production Process

The Manufacturing Cells (Not Shown) Adjacent To The Kanban Conveyors Produce The Components That Are Buffered In The Kanban Configuration. There Are Various Volume Levels Per Kanban Structure Based On The Work In Process Product Being Stored And Its Respective Container Types. Each Container Has A Substantial Gross Weight So The Heavier Loads Convey Directly To The Transportation Cart. Other Loads Transition to A Conveyorized Stacker Truck That Then Transfers To The Transportation Cart. Mechanical Singulation Of The Loads Onto The Transfer Cart Were Critical To The Operation Due To The Back Pressure On The Line When Multiple Containers Were Staged.
