The hottest modular logistics management

Modular logistics management

Toyota production mode (TPS) is a system of concepts and methods to improve the vitality of enterprises. At present, the largest use is mainly shoe materials. It is a general manufacturing method of Toyota company. Its basic idea is to "completely eliminate waste". Through the integration of production, it pursues the rationality of product manufacturing and the cost saving of quality first. Now it has a European version

Toyota's production management has made great achievements, and its profits exceed the sum of the profits of the world's three major automobile factories, and its competitiveness is the strongest. Therefore, at present, Toyota's production mode has become not only a management method, but also a corporate culture. In fact, Toyota production mode (TPS) is a system of concepts and methods to improve the vitality of enterprises. It is a general manufacturing method of Toyota company. Its basic idea is to "completely eliminate waste". Through the integration of production, it pursues the rationality of product manufacturing and the cost saving of high quality. Now it has a European version

personalized information

recently, after visiting the factory where ingerstadt produces Audi A3, people were surprised to find that Audi combines the real-time production advertised by Japanese companies with the German habit of trusting machines very well - every car on the production line is different, and there is a small black box in the front of the car containing all its personalized information, and every special part it needs will be delivered to the assembly workers on time; The manufacturer of the seat set began to produce it five hours before it was installed on the car. The workers rotated their positions in groups. They worked happily, loved their company and positions, actively put forward reasonable suggestions to the company, and won awards for promotion

in dingefen's BMW 5-series, 6-series and 7-series mixed line assembly workshop, almost the same scene is staged again! It's just that the layout of their production lines is different. Audi is a little more advanced, while BMW's factory was built in the 1970s, but it can still achieve the efficiency of 50s a production beat required by the automotive industry (the same as Guangzhou Honda). However, the new factory built in Leipzig in 2004 is several times more advanced in these aspects

"we learn from Toyota's efficiency and quality, and our advantages are far from Toyota. Our customers can completely customize the vehicle and modify the order 6 days before the final assembly of the vehicle, which the Japanese can't do." The person in charge of BMW said that Audi did the same

Klaus, BMW's financial director, said that the rise in the price of crude oil and raw materials, as well as the significant increase in the guarantee fee of the US dollar against the euro, had brought about a cost increase of nearly 1billion euros to BMW Group. All European manufacturers cannot escape these problems. The chief financial officer of Audi told everyone that the cost of the company increased by 14.5% year-on-year in 2005

but the members of the board of directors of Audi are not worried about this, "we pay more costs, but we also get faster sales revenue, because our cars provide higher configuration and technical content, so they have higher added value, and the result is that the profit margin is improved." Said Schmidt, the director in charge of Audi's procurement

BMW also said that through the growth of sales, the improvement of management and production efficiency, they have successfully suppressed the negative impact of external adverse factors on profit growth

modular supply

in order to reduce the logistics cost of parts, in the past five years, almost no automobile manufacturer in Europe has not established its own logistics industrial park, which is the deepening and extension of the whole automobile production process from OEM automobile manufacturers to automobile module components and system suppliers. The logistics industrial park reduces the inventory of automobile manufacturers, so that complex automobile parts can be directly transported to the automobile assembly line in a short time in a timely manner

moreover, the logistics industrial park is of great help to OEM automobile manufacturers and auto parts suppliers, which can reduce their capital expenditure and enable them to concentrate on their main work. Their commitments and obligations are also re integrated due to the changes in the value-added chain. A considerable part of the logistics management work is handed over to professional companies engaged in labor services

however, this change in logistics process has increased the workload of auto parts suppliers. A few years ago, parts and components were mainly delivered to automobile manufacturers in the order of automobile parts assembly by means of timely supply. Today, these transportation tasks are mainly undertaken by material transportation enterprises or labor service enterprises, and they also undertake many pre installation tasks. Typical examples are the pre installation of car door decorations, car bumpers, car cables, seats and instrument panels. The components that occupy the second place in the logistics industrial park are those small parts with large quantity and light weight, such as the fuel tank and exhaust pipe of the car. The transportation cost of these parts is relatively high. Therefore, it is most meaningful for such parts to be produced and pre installed near the automobile OEM factory. "She said that

because suppliers must manage all kinds of scattered parts from all over the world every day, sometimes they can make major changes to the established plan, which brings great pressure to the product development and production, and there are other materials waiting for each batch of materials to enter and leave the industrial park. Therefore, auto parts suppliers hope to have an it process suitable for the logistics industrial park to manage decentralized structural parts and manage dynamic logistics processes Sequence software. This requires all parts suppliers to gather the automobile modules and systems of OEM automobile manufacturers with different important skill parameters in accordance with the global procurement mode. Automobile manufacturers must establish long-term strategic partnerships with auto parts suppliers, and ultimately ensure that automobile manufacturers can produce at a high speed quickly and reliably

the European version of "just in time"

just in time is to supply the required workpieces to each process in the required quantity at the required time. In order to meet the requirement of "punctuality", Toyota adopted the method of receiving the required number of parts from the previous process when needed. Because the last process is the final assembly line, as long as the production plan is issued to the final assembly line, indicating the required vehicle type, quantity and time, the assembly line can receive various parts from the previous process according to the plan. In this way, the manufacturing process is reversed from back to front until the raw material supply departments are linked up in a chain and synchronously, so as to meet the requirements of just on time and reduce the management hours to the minimum

after adopting modular logistics supply, the just in time supply efficiency of European auto parts has been greatly improved

smart has adhered to its own tradition since the Hambach production plant was built, and the logistics management company panopa is responsible for the management of transportation tools and freight scheduling control. In addition, panopa also established its own warehouse to complete the logistics and transportation tasks, and transported the modular auto parts directly to the auto assembly line. Smart company is very satisfied with the result. Therefore, in the production process of Roadster Car, the logistics management enterprise is entrusted with the task of parts feeding and allocation and the task of supplying modular parts directly to the assembly line. In addition to requiring to control the dimensional tolerance of wire cores (cable cores), smart company can also save a batching site. (end)
