Tailor-made premium service: our three logistics systems "Delivery plan system", "Kanban" and "Consignment" form the basis of any delivery contract. They can be expanded individually under defined conditions and go far beyond the industry standard. These various ways increase the added value of each product supplied by us.
Kanban: "card system" for secure product circulation
Kanban processing is suitable for constant requirements in the case of continual production processes. The Kanban containers are defined in the run-up with a certain filling quantity, likewise their quantity. Each container has a clear identity number. All details on a container (quantity, parts no., warehouse location, recipient warehouse and delivery time etc.) are listed on a "Kanban card". Two containers are in operation as a minimum to guarantee product circulation. As soon as a Kanban container is empty at a customer's premises, the electronic Kanban card is forwarded to Rutronik, the container is refilled and the delivery process starts afresh. The Kanban containers are made available directly at the place of use.
- Self-operated control loop
- Reduction in material stocks and capital tie-up
- Reduction in throughput times
- Can be combined with multi-use container system
Consignment warehouse: flexible and reliable
The consignment warehouse is an ideal solution for production subject to short-term fluctuations. While the customer merely provides the storage space, Rutronik provides the goods. Invoices are only written out once goods are withdrawn from the warehouse. Stocks without warehouse evaluation are kept separately. Customers are therefore required to display the warehouse by way of EDP technology, and information can be exchanged electronically. Various models are available for filling the consignment warehouse, such as consumption-controlled min/max filling or requirement-controlled via forecasts.
- High availability and supply security
- Low processing input
- Reduction in the capital tie-up
- Vendor managed inventory (VMI)
- Centralised inventory controlling via our specialist department
