The Spring Solutions Model
Spring Solutions can create and implement a tailor made Direct Line Feed Kanban System whereby Spring Solutions become responsible for the Management of Chemicals and Consumables within your site / sites. Our model would see Spring Solutions manage products from ‘Cradle to Grave’ offering the ultimate bespoke solution for your business, eliminating all existing issues and allowing your staff to focus on their area of expertise. The Direct Line Feed system is supported by a Satellite Stores at Spring HQ where we house a precise amount of stock that will ensure no stock outs.
Kanban Products would be items that are identified as regular running items and that are used in Production, those which would be required to be on Site at all times and for which we could provide an estimated usage based on forecasts.
Ad-Hoc Products are the more sporadic items, items which there is not necessarily ongoing demand for but that are required either sporadically or on a one-off basis. Both these groups of Products are absolutely essential to your production and are treated with the same level of priority, the only difference being the method of Ordering and Receiving.
The Kanban System
Those Items which are identified as Kanban items would be operated on a Direct Line Feed Kanban Model whereby Products are delivered directly to a Kanban Location accessible by all Production Staff in that cell. The Kanban would operate on a Twin Bin System, whereby two Bins of each Product would be held on the Location, with each Bin containing one weeks’ worth of usage, ensuring there is always two weeks’ worth of stock of these items held on site at BAE.
Once one Bin is depleted it is taken off from the Kanban Rack and placed in a ‘Tipped Bins Area’. Depending on the site spend and requirement we have three models:
For Larger Sites we would offer a full-time on-site stores person. We would establish a hub on the customer site, and this would be managed by our staff member. They would check for tipped bins on a twice daily basis the scan, refill and fulfil the demand. All of this is managed on Springs software and is fully auditable and traceable. They would also have immediate access to the MSDS, Cof C and Batch Numbers on the Spring system.
For Small & Medium Sites there are two methods for triggering a Replenishment on a Bin.
The Spring Logistics Manager makes 2/3 site visits per week. He would scan empty bins which send a signal to Spring to pick and prepare the goods for the bin and on next visit the refilled bin would be returned to the Kanban.
Alternatively, within the cell, whoever picks the last of the Stock would trigger a release by accessing Spring Solutions Stock Management System and notifying the System of the empty Bin. This would then send a pull to our Logistics Operative who would pick the Stock and fill the Bin on their next visit to the Site.
Where the Spring Solutions Consumables Kanban System is a truly revolutionary, is the use of our World Class Stock Replenishment Algorithm. This System will calculate what the customers actual usage is, when that Product expires, the Manufacturing Lead Time and provide us with an exact reorder date and minimum stock level.
With this system, not only do we ensure no shortages or stoppages by ensuring a continuous flow of Product, we eliminate any unnecessary or unexpected Scrappage by incorporating the Shelf Life into our Ordering System.
The Spring Chemical Management Solution
Your current model may be an ad hoc purchasing one, or you may be having scheduled or call off deliveries from your current supplier. They may even offer a Chemical Management Solution. However, the Spring model for the replenishment of Chemicals and Consumables will absolutely revolutionise this model and we will address all of the issues around Total Cost of Ownership.
