Additional services ⋅ Reliability across the board

To manufacture good and reliable products is only one side of the coin. Flexibility and reliability when delivering the goods is the other – and is by no means less challenging.

Because, whether it is for small or large series, every customer has individual requirements for delivery. We will fulfil all of them, because we listen attentively to the needs of our customers and our passion for perfection is reflected in the highest levels of delivery performance.

To improve our reaction times and increase our readiness for delivery, we place great value on …

  • EDI services for exchanges with suppliers and customers
  • Ship to Line – Direct delivery to production lines
  • Consignment warehousing

Consignment warehousing

A consignment warehouse is a storage in a customer’s company. Products that are stored there remain the property of the supplier until they are removed from the warehouse. Only then does the actual delivery and invoicing take place. Since in this case the products have already been quality-tested and are available at all times in agreed quantities, customers profit from “Just in time” deliveries, highest realiability and a reduction in the administrative and capital connection costs.

KANBAN – and what customers gain from it

KANBAN (also known as the pull principle) is an effective method for the control of production processes, in which one orients oneself exclusively towards the actual consumption of materials at every place of provision and place of consumption in a multi-level chain of production. Although the system sounds simple, its actual implementation is complex. The reward is a self-controlling asynchronous system with no central planning authority … The bottom line is the reduction of warehouse inventories, less capital tied-up and a higher level of flexibility and reliability of delivery. As a side effect of the increased level of responsibility and qualification within the control system, we could observe an increased motivation of our employees – which in turn proved beneficial to the quality of the products.

In more detail:

A Kanban system is principally controlled at the final stage of production. If the warehouse inventories of a particular material fall below a defined minimum value (the reorder level), then this information will be reported to the upstream production unit and will then initiate the production/replenishment of material for the location affected. In the classic Kanban system, the chain of communication uses so-called Kanban cards, which are delivered to the depots/sinks with the filled freight container. As soon as the contents of the container have been consumed, the sink places the card in a collection box that is in turn regularly handed to the relevant source. The source then begins with the production/replenishment of the type and amount of material defined on the card and stores it in Kanban containers. As soon as the containers are filled up with the amounts required, they are transported together with the Kanban cards to the buffer stores of the source. From there, the sink can supply itself with the new materials. The outcome is a self-controlling asynchronous system with no central planning authority.
