With unpredictable auto sales figures, and oftentimes short notice changes to demand, how does the supply chain ensure they’re pacing their customers?
Just-In-Time, or JIT for short, is just one of the methods that manufacturers with a global outlook use, and a huge benefit of this approach is the elimination of raw material, inventory, and product storage costs, and the ability to react quickly and decisively to order volume changes.
Given that huge inventory in this working model is considered a waste or a dead investment because it incurs additional storage costs and ties up cash, space, and other resources that could be deployed for other value-creation purposes, it's little wonder that high aiming firms are utilizing this approach ever more often.
By aligning raw material supplies directly with orders and the production schedule, this increased efficiency helps to ensure that companies such as leading plastic parts supplier NS-K can react extremely quickly to changes in demand. Order volumes may go up or down, and by creating seamless supply chain interactions, value and quality can still be assured.
The wider benefit of this approach is the ability for companies such as NS-K to work with their clients and mold customer-centric terms which fit exacting needs, rather than demanding a vast order quantity in one contract. This flexibility and response to market conditions is something only the best of the best can provide sustainably, and yet, not only NS-K, but each of the companies within the Adis Automotive Group provide this same exceptional offering.
