If you choose to implement a Swift stock management system
We undertake to count your stock and pack into auditable quantities, this creates a stock value and allows the monitoring to commence. We would anticipate stock levels to be higher than necessary, therefore over the following month’s production would reduce the stocking levels naturally without replenishment, in line with your projections.
Discussions over usage are vital to ensure that production is not compromised. We appreciate your estimated stock figures are likely to fluctuate either way, depending on your sales contracts but the effectiveness and efficiency of the system relies on good communications and if an increase in production is expected then stock levels will be increased. Equally if a reduction is expected the opposite applies.
On multi-product production lines, old products will be replaced by new and the fastener itinerary will change along with the quantities. We accept and expect these variations and with good communications changes will be seamless. Initially audit dates will reflect the number of items and quantities, but experience tells us that, after running in, period audits will repeat weekly. Replenishment is made directly to primary and/or secondary locations by Swift, leaving advice notes as confirmation of parts supplied.
