As an JIS supplier we consequently plan all our logistic processes according and synchronized to the assembly line and the production processes. Two hours of time are regular for us as of the receival of the JIS call from the customer until we deliver the required module at the customer. Line feeding, storage and incoming goods guarantee flexibility and process security at SAS.
Internal JIT supply involves the continuation of precisely-timed and consumption-related delivery by the supplier up to the assembly line to reduce stocks and floor space requirements for material placement. This leads to faster responsiveness to disruptions and process deviations.
It normally falls to the storage facility to balance out different delivery and consumption speeds and quantities. This achieves harmonisation between material flow sources and depressions in order to guarantee the required supply reliability. A rising number of variants and increasing scarcity of logistics space next to the assembly line demand suitable and efficient storage concepts in order to guarantee the leanest possible and therefore most process-reliable material flow.
The main criteria for assessing storage systems are space requirements, accessibility to individual articles, reaction speed, handling effort, level of investment, FIFO compliance, distance from the point of use, acceptable variants and IT requirements.
