The assembly line production of automobiles is extensively automated to improve efficiency and reduce costs. Consider the advantages of the same level of process automation on your indirect material supply chain and workflow.
The assembly line process in most automotive manufacturers is cutting edge. Lean manufacturing principles are used throughout the entire work-flow to reduce waste and inefficiencies. Inventor-e enables automotive manufacturers to take that same level of process automation used in the assembly line and apply it to the distribution and management of indirect materials. Everything from MRO supplies to expensive hand tools can be distributed and monitored with the same level of lean principles that have made the assembly line what it is today.
Sourcerer™ operations analysis software combined with an Inventor-e supply system allows you to make real progress on inventory cost containment. Sourcerer provides clear reports and alerts that help you make the right decisions for controlling inventory.
