What is Kanban?

August 23, 2022

Kanban is a two-bin inventory management solution to manage certain product types, such as consumables, in a hospital. It works by placing one bin in front of another on the supply rack. Clinicians remove the product from that front bin and when that is empty, the bin is removed, placed on the top of the rack and the back bin is now pulled forward. The placement of the empty bin on the top shelf is a visual signal to reorder the product. When the replenishment product comes in, that new bin is placed behind the existing bin. Kanban is offered as a QSight module.
