Context

  • An R&D site with strong growth in activity: the site has grown from 150 to 1,000 employees in 10 years, mainly engineers and technicians
  • A very wide variety of components and parts to be managed, mainly stored individually and most of which are “out of gauge” and cannot be stored on a pallet
  • Six different storage points identified on site, plus an overflow a few kilometers from the site
  • A very embryonic central Supply Chain function and “à la carte” management of stocks by each of the business lines (testing, after-sales service, etc.)
  • A loss of efficiency in all trades or functions related to the management – and research – of parts in stock

Goal

Reduce costs associated with storage through:

  • A review of intra-site logistics flows
  • The implementation of traceability

Methodological approach

  • Mapping of existing flows: physical and information
  • Analysis of the differences in practices between the businesses and definition of the right need
  • Definition of target operating modes and associated IS requirements
  • Sourcing of track & trace solutions and recommendations

Résultats

  • – 3 € / m² of storage costs
  • Traceability from entry on site
  • 100% site flow coverage
