JIT - Lean Logistics

Improve the velocity of production and your supply chain. The term JIT has been used in industry for some time. However, the more you investigate the integral parts of the JIT aspect of Lean, the more you realise what a powerful tool this can be for improving your enterprise and supply chain.

LMR has transformed the internal and external logistics systems for automotive, aerospace, and pharmaceutical companies over the last six years. Benefit from our experience in these sectors and build yourself a nimble supply chain able to cope with today's ever demanding global market.

Our Lean Logistics Model - encompasses the following aspects to make sure you and your supply chain see a performance leap in Stock Turns and throughput of material:

Supply Chain Management System - the continual development of the weakest link in the chain to ensure delivery and shared cost improvements. A comprehensive programme geared towards improving the supply chain as a whole with emphasis upon partnership development for the benefit of all parties.

Level Scheduling - the introduction of the Heijunka principle to smooth demand and optimise capacity both in the OEM and the supply chain.

Pull Systems - to control material flow using a no consumption, no replenishment principle. With min-max levels and a plan for every part, LMR can ensure your material flow is as Lean as possible. This will encompass the rules of Kanban and the application of the appropriate type of card system.

Return packaging - Take care of the environment and improve your packaging costs at the same time.

Milk Runs and X Docking - Optimise the delivery cycles, utilisation of trucks, and reduce warehousing costs with our approach to external logistics.
