The way in which an organisation controls their parts and materials is essential to ensure that jobs are presented to production efficiently and accurately. To support our MRP system we have invested over £450K in our logistics facility, to reduce kitting time and maximise storage medium we have installed three eight meter carrousels for piece parts and a shuttle for material which is supplied on reels. This investment has enabled us to increase our throughput, reduce our ‘non-value add’ logistics area without increasing the number of stores personnel.
