Kanban Advanced Inventory Management Services
The complexity of supply chains can create a multitude of headaches for manufacturers and suppliers. Part shortages extend lead times, resulting in frustrated customers and potentially costing you sales. Another common issue is overstock, which leaves you with costly surplus inventory.
Having a sound inventory management system in place is critical in preventing these and other issues, especially if you are a large OEM that typically orders large quantities of plastic machined parts. However, not everyone has the time or staff resources to manage their inventory efficiently.
Improving Supply Chain Efficiency with Advanced Inventory Management
Upland Fab uses state-of-the-art ERP software and Kanban inventory management to manage your product supplies. This inventory management method is proven to prevent wasteful overstocking and bottlenecks in your supply chain by using product-specific bins to signal when stock needs refilling. When paired with sophisticated ERP software, the Kanban method helps us ensure that we always have the right amount of stock on hand, so you never have to worry about being short on supply.
The amount of inventory we hold for you depends on several factors and is tailored to your individual needs. Our ability to machine small volumes of complex and intricate parts means we can accommodate inventory needs of any size, from a few to several hundred parts. We can also produce small batches at a lower cost than other CNC machining companies to help you save money.
Preventing Inventory Shortages with Just-In-Time-Delivery
