For our customers we assemble the cockpit module and in many cases supply it to their assembly point. The OEM then just takes over the fitting of the complete module as part of final assembly. We are closely bound by the automotive manufacturer's specifications when designing our production system and must orient our material flow towards them. The highest priority is supplying the OEM with the correct cockpit variant at the correct line section in the correct assembly cycle.
We guarantee you just-in-time delivery This production-synchronous purchasing also saves costs for interim storage. But we are not just experts in just-in-time delivery: we also deliver just-in-sequence. We supply our customers with ordered modules at the desired time in the desired quantity and in the desired sequence. We therefore offer true-to-sequence cockpit module assembly.

For our customers we fit the cockpit module and in many cases supply it to their assembly point. The OEM then only takes over the fitting of the complete module as part of final assembly. The highest priority is supplying the OEM with the correct cockpit variant in the correct assembly cycle.
The control of the material supply is one of logistics' core tasks. It is decisive for the greatest possible efficiency of the physical processes and ensures that the correct material comes to the correct assembly point at the correct time.
With inbound logistics we are ensuring the smooth supply of our assembly plants with our suppliers' production materials. The design of the logistics processes in the supplier network forms the basis for an optimised supply process.
The stock management in our works is subject to the balanced relationship of transport and stock costs as well as mainly the evening out of the customer's ordering patterns. At SAS, three main storage principles are applied for this – block store, dynamic store on shelves and warehouse-on-wheels (WoW). We succeed in optimising stocks by consistently pursuing and complying with these principles.
The conceptual design of the inhouse logistics aims at short throughput times with low-effort handling and optimised stocks. Our customers benefit from smooth material flows thanks to our more than 20 years of experience.
For the outbound logistics, we are developing a joint JIT/JIS concept based on the delivery point specified by the customer. At the end of this process chain we hand over a module individually manufactured for a specific customer – more than 4.5 million times a year.
