Warehouse management

Proportionately very high process costs for warehouse and purchasing departments arise in the C-parts sector. At the same time, the value of these parts - comparatively speaking - is relatively low.

Here the Steyr-Werner-PluS points can decisively lower costs. Thanks to the high degree of flexibility of the PluS warehouse management services, we can develop a tailor-made package of steps with you, to obtain that optimum effect.

And the service looks like this:
Our staff member pays you a visit at stipulated, requirement-oriented intervals. He monitors the stocks of defined articles in your warehouse or on the installation sites. And he ensures, in good time, that supplies come in when the stipulated minimum stocks are undercut. This service can, at all times, be optimised and adapted to the trend in requirements in a simple and flexible manner.

Your special benefit:
You leave the worries of sufficient stocks to someone who has an optimum insight into the procurement situation. To your supplier. Supply shortages, procurement difficulties, price trends and market shifts are then no longer matters needing your attention. And of course this Steyr-Werner service allows you to reduce operating costs since the monitoring and ordering expenditure is done away with.

The preparations:
We gladly assist in planning and selecting the shelves and containers and provide you with high-grade, dirt-repellent and scannable labels.

If required, we also make use of your material numbers so you can optimise internal-plant sequences using scanners. We are also glad to help you in calculating the quantities per article to be kept in stock.

Raising business efficiency with "slips of paper"

A contradiction in terms? Not in this instance. Kanban comes from the Japanese and means "card" or " symbol". This kanban is thus simply sent to the supplier and replaces an otherwise complex ordering procedure. This presupposes, of course, an agreement made beforehand between customer and dealer on the precise articles, numbers and prices.
The kanban system is primarily operated in a one or two dispenser system. There are two receptacles with the same articles on the warehouse shelf at the customer's. They have a kanban – a label with customer number, article number, designated content etc.
When a receptacle is empty, it is removed and the other is then used. The empty dispensers are forwarded to the supplier at regular intervals, are re-filled and then returned to the customer. Instead of the receptacles, the kanban, on its own, can be sent to the supplier who uses it as the basis for an additional delivery of the used articles.

Appropriate field of application:

Do you manufacture product batches? Do you have a constant, regular and long-term need for the same articles? Then this relatively simple system could result in a considerable simplification of your ordering procedures.
