You use this function when you produce the necessary material yourself, using repetitive manufacturing. As soon as a kanban is set to EMPTY the system creates run schedule quantities for this material, for example planned orders for repetitive manufacturing, and this triggers production.


In this process the system posts the costs incurred in production to the cost collector. To determine the cost collector see Product Cost Collectors .

The advantage of this process is that you have the option of a preview, you can plan components and you have current data available for the kanban calculation.


  1. You set a kanban to EMPTY.
  2. The system creates a run schedule quantity.
  3. If you have chosen replenishment strategy 005, then the system also reduces the planned orders, which have been created by MRP.

  4. The kanban or the information is transported by the demand source to the supply source. If necessary, the card is reprinted at the supply source or it is attached to the kanban.
  5. The supply source receives the information on all the empty containers by means of the kanban or via the kanban board.
  6. After the container has been filled by the supply source, you have three options:

Also read the section Structure link Posting Goods Receipt for KANBAN Materials.


If you manually change the component list of the run schedule quantity (in order to change component quantities for example), the system automatically carries out the backflush with the changed run schedule quantity data when the kanban is set to FULL.


If the status is set to FULL or the backflush transaction is posted without component processing, the system explodes the current BOM. If you want to change components, then you must use the backflushing function or you can manually change the run schedule quantity. In so doing, you access the component screen.


In the replenishment strategy you can determine whether and in what way planned orders are created again, if the user cancels the emptying of a kanban.
