Reduced inventory value
Reduced despite strong growth
ABC’s analyses of inventory and rules for procurement and inventory management ensure that Micro Matic is able to identify and control the minimum inventory for the various product categories, which means that the excess inventory of unneeded goods does not push the inventory value to unnecessarily high levels.
At Micro Matic, ABC is used actively in dialogue with suppliers. The visual and easily understandable analyses create fact-based transparency in Micro Matic’s logistics and product flow, and departments have moved from hunch-based management to fact-based management.
Higher service level
From <90% to a stable level of over 95%
Rather than creating data in Excel cells, the ABC data is analysed and processed so that product managers, buyers and production planners have specific disposition rules to base their work on. This creates joint management across the value chain.
