Efficient handling of 1000 print formats
STI has been commissioned to handle scheduling for packaging reorders on more than 1,000 Siemens articles.
The planning is based on the customer's own sales forecasting, whereby STI has been granted the freedom to determine necessary production quantities independently.
The SAP-Siemens delivery schedule and its quantity requirement data is exported daily in encrypted form as DELFOR (Delivery Forecast) data.
Siemens simultaneously transfers withdrawals from consignment stock on a daily basis in form of an Inventory Report (INVRPT).
SCM's boon for Siemens: availability and punctuality of deliveries on cordless products has improved 100 percent within a period of three years, with average delivery time slashed from 30 to five days and storage costs cut by 23 percent.
