N.A.L. Company is pleased to introduce a better, more streamlined process for keeping track of our inventory— a custom, real-time, quality assurance inventory control program. We are undergoing many phases of this new system, called the Inventory Management System (IMS), which will be rolling out steadily throughout the next few years. We’d like to introduce you to Phase One in detail.
Phase One: The Infrastructure.
This phase is already well underway at the N.A.L. plant, incorporating supply chain management functions and integrating QR coding of raw materials, production, and shipping status. This real-time approach allows us to fully understand and control manufacturing lines to ensure our company can integrate every portion of the N.A.L. process; from sales, to purchasing, production, shipping, and customer service.
Phase One also consists of new vehicle mounted tables and scanning equipment to relay real-time data into our office. This lean process has shown its efficiency already within our shipping and receiving departments by reducing idle time for trucks at loading docks—the average load time has been reduced drastically from 25 minutes to less than 15 minutes.
With the implementation of Phase One, we are able to provide a new customer service element that previously was unavailable due to lack of technology. With the IMS, we are able to immediately determine the status of an order while a customer is still on the phone, reducing unnecessary correspondence.
Supply chain management and quality control is very important to our company’s production process. With our several different product lines, it’s important for us to acknowledge which raw materials are consumed, how much is used, and how long it takes to produce. We’re happy to report that our new program will not only reduce inventory costs, but will also create a history of saleable goods from beginning to end in the production line.
Stay tuned for details on Phase Two: Incorporating Multiple Plants and Phase Three: Customer Portals. We’re excited to share how the IMS program will build our ability to provide excellent production, quality, and service with you.
