Logistics & Materials Management
The efficient handling and transport as well as a strategically sensible stocking of material has a considerable influence on productivity and the costs of working capital for manufacturing companies. In the event of changes in product structure, in means of production or of markets, the often organically grown structures need to be questioned.
Planning challenges arise at the process level as well as in the area of logistics technology and inventory strategy. By addressing these challenges, the necessary security of supply and delivery capability can be ensured and excessive inventories avoided.
We provide consulting on how to identify opportunities for optimization and on how to develop hands-on strategies for the reorganization of intralogistics and materials management. Intralogistics consulting focuses on the design of business processes and material flows, taking into account spatial conditions, restrictions, and current technological developments. In order to optimize inventory levels, we build on our method of developing a tailor-made inventory management. Here, the strategic orientation of production is operationalised by a targeted analysis of material movements, the selection of forecasting procedures, and the mapping within the IT systems (ERP and WMS). To master complex warehouse and transport processes, we also support you in the systematic selection of a warehouse management system and advise you on the analysis and optimization of the associated business processes.
