Synchronized material flow in supplier and customer logistic

In manufacturing companies, on average 10-20% of HR costs are used on internal material supply and allocation. Material allocation, however, does not add value at all and affects competitiveness considerably. This is admittedly not new, but it has not yet led to the application of respective methods and tools in many companies. To support continuous production, the needed material must be in flow and available for the downstream process. The target is to only refill those goods which have actually been used, according to the same principle as refilling shelves in a supermarket. Material flow without buffers means having the right material, in the right quantity, at the right time, in the right quality, at the right place. The main target of this training is reducing lead times and the sustainable reduction of inventory.
