PP Kanban control cycle

Hi team,

I was referring the below statement to understand the control cycle.

The Kanban Control Cycle business object is used to control the flow of information and material between the demand source and the supply source in a pull environment. It controls the material quantities in production. It defines a loop between demand source and the supply source for recurring replenishment.

In the above statement, it is mentioned that, it is linking the demand source and supply source. In SAP, how we are linking the the demand source and supply source?

While creating the supply area in PK05, we are providing the storage location. Is this supply source or demand source?

In SAP, where we are assigning the another source (supply / demand source)?

    The storage location in the supply area is the storage TO where the material is staged/supplied.

    The supply strategy (FROM where) is defined in the control cycle by the replenishment strategy. There are many to choose from, and they differ a lot, like production, external vendor, or stock transfer from a warehouse.

    • Psk, I don't think that KANBAN is suited for replenishing production with pallets of raw materials.

      I also said that you should learn and get familiar with the method, and that will help you better assess when and where it is suitable.

      For staging materials in production storage locations there are other tools in SAP, like the pull list.
