Increasingly flexible delivery concepts, shortened product life cycles and increasing diversity of variants call for well thought-out materials management. Otherwise, we are faced with what every business seeks to avoid: high capital commitment and unnecessary costs caused by inadequate storage facilities. It is even more important, therefore, to reconcile the requirements of maintaining the lowest stock levels possible and prompt delivery at all times or timely supply. For that reason the challenge is to structure materials management along the entire logistics chain in a consistent manner – from the procurement or purchase of the necessary means of production through the maintenance of stocks and warehousing to production. We analyse the actual situation in your company, point out where it could be improved, help you to implement improvements and also carry out associated tasks, such as order picking.
