Taking Total Control of Materials
On-demand Web Seminar
The hand-off of materials between the warehouse and the shop-floor has always been a significant challenge. Inventory error accumulation, unexpected internal materials shortages, write off of materials at the stock check, bloated stock-holding, and out of control materials on the shop floor, are just some of the symptoms that show that materials need total control. Avoidable costs related to materials represent the most significant opportunity for business improvement in SMT manufacturing, where ERP and traditional MES systems have failed to produce a satisfactory solution that can manage material inventory accurately across the whole operation. Taking control of materials across multiple warehouses, shop-floor WIP, accounting consumption of materials in real-time on machines, Valor provides a single complete lean supply chain solution as an enhancement to ERP, promoting Lean just-in-time and Kanban material logistics management. This presentation explains exactly how the Valor materials solution works to enhance ERP, eliminating needless material costs, and promoting flexibility and agility of electronics manufacturing.
What You Will Learn
- The cost of existing shop-floor poor practices
- The need for enhancement of ERP in electronics through shop-floor connection
- How the lean total materials solution from Valor works, and benefits it brings
