THE REALITY OF LOCAL COMPANIES
During this time of extreme competitiveness, we must pay particular attention to the amounts we spend in order to offer a quality product at a cost that maximizes our profits. This is what makes all the difference between prospering and disappearing.
According to the experts, the cost of keeping your inventory – namely storage, management and handling costs – amounts to up to 40% of its value on average. And, in the case of inexpensive yet high-volume parts, such as fasteners, this cost is even higher. In many cases, these parts rarely account for more than 5% of the value of the finished product… but they can represent up to 80% of the number of parts required to manufacture a product. Wouldn’t the time you spend managing these parts be put to better use managing the more costly parts in your inventory?
OPTIMIZING YOUR COMPANY'S INVENTORY
The fastener family includes almost all of the inexpensive but high-volume parts. As a result of their number, diversity and features, they are enormously costly in terms of ordering, managing, handling, storage, production and final product assembly.
Whether the work is done in the office or the shop, from 10 to 20 steps are occasionally needed to manage the inventory, from the time the order is placed until production is completed. The larger your assembly line is the most complex your logistics become. And this will definitely have an impact on your production costs!
