INVENTORY OPTIMIZATION

INCREASE DELIVERY AVAILABILITIES TO NEARLY 100 %


A good inventory manager aims to achieve the optimal balance between a high delivery capability and low inventories at the same time. An ERP system often reaches its limits in this respect. The use of specialized add-on software from experts in inventory optimization has many advantages here.

Liebherr

Success Story - Liebherr MCCtec GmbH


Manufacturer of maritime cranes, handling equipment, rope dredgers, crawler cranes and deep foundation machines.


Challenges:

The biggest challenge is the extreme ABC distribution: there are very many C-items and, in proportion, very few and large A-items. For MRP planning, this is a special case and does not correspond to a classic curve from the textbook.

Results:
  • Planning effort reduced by 50%
  • Inventory reduced by approximately 10%
  • Service level for production and spare parts greatly improved
  • Liquidity significantly increased
"After a proof of concept of one and a half years in the warehouse in Nenzing, the results simply convinced me. ERP systems often leave planners with gray masks - we really liked ADD*ONE's approach of having everything at a glance."

Norbert Bitschi, Warehouse Manager Liebherr - Plant Nenzing GmbH
