Best practices for In-plant Logistics efficiency
Industrial companies must eliminate waste in manufacturing to become more efficient and to achieve a reduction in costs. We have seen in many cases where the manufacturing units go into losses if they are not able to eliminate wastage well within time. As a result, many industrial companies implement efficiency improvement programs and establish well-known lean practices, such as 5S, value stream analysis, continuous improvement, to realise efficient processes in manufacturing. In addition, for a more efficient handling of logistical tasks, many companies rely on common concepts and methods, such as just-in-time (JIT) and/or just-in-sequence (JIS) delivery. Scientific research provides suitable approaches and efficiency metrics to evaluate the efficiency of individual and/or a group of manufacturing facilities adequately.
Appropriate measures to eliminate these inefficiencies can be simulated and compared to the current in-plant logistics efficiency. As a result, successfully simulated efficiency-improving measures can be transferred to reality and implemented in practice. Efficiency-improving action can be repeated until an adequate level of efficiency is achieved. Thus, simulation allows a dynamic investigation of the system’s behaviour and it therefore facilitates the implementation of a continuous improvement process. Consequently, it is a useful tool for managers to derive appropriate measures for continuously improving a manufacturing system’s efficiency.
The operation of transportation determines the efficiency of moving products. The progress in techniques and management principles improves the moving load, delivery speed, service quality, operation costs, the usage of facilities and energy saving.
Transportation takes a crucial part in the manipulation of logistic. Reviewing the current condition, a strong system needs a clear frame of logistics and a proper transport implements and techniques to link the producing procedures.
Transportation occupies one-third of the amount in the logistics costs and transportation systems influence the performance of logistics system hugely.
Transporting is required in the whole production procedures, from manufacturing to delivery to the final consumers and returns. Only a good coordination between each component would bring the benefits to a maximum. Without well-developed transportation systems, logistics could not bring its advantages into full play. A good transport system in logistics activities could provide better logistics efficiency, reduce operation cost, and promote service quality. The improvement of transportation systems needs the effort from both public and private sectors. A well-operated logistics system could increase both the competitiveness of the government and enterprises.
NWCC’s in-plant services help you cut costs, increase productivity, and get the best out of your most valuable resource: your people. NWCC believes that all processes in the plant should be considered holistically and integrated with external logistics systems. To avoid the tendency to shift costs from one area to another, we analyse the complete system, including how the plant interfaces with inbound to manufacturing and outbound logistics.
NWCC is dedicated to achieving the highest level of operating safety on your site. We invest substantial time building consistent processes and training to achieve our goal of zero recordable incidents.
NWCC In-plant operations and store management/ Warehousing is completely IT based for easy identification of the product groups, quick retrieval and disposal, facilitating manufacturing and finished goods dispatches, most efficiently.
The job involves:
- Receipt of raw materials, inventory control, storage and feed to the manufacturing process.
- Providing necessary inputs to the purchase department on stock level, quality of product and their packing.
- Continuous feed of the raw materials to the processing system.
- Management and disposal of used packing materials, retrieval and re-use.
- Receipt of the finished goods from the point product production line and transfer to storage area.
- Identification of each product group, systematic storage and feed-back of the finished goods stocks to concerned department on daily basis.
- Retrieval of the finished goods, loading onto the dispatch vehicle as directed which also include container stuffing both for domestic as well as export consignment.
- Documentation and record keeping
- In the process of providing in-plant logistics services, we have positioned our own handing equipment’s and trained man-power including workers for round the clock operation.
