Manufacturing Supermarket Optimization

Improve the effectiveness of Manufacturing Supermarkets in your Company

4.0 Solutions for The Manufacturing Supermarket Optimization

Open Mind Tech realizes Solutions for the manufacturing supermarket optimization in production lines, reducing times and errors, in accordance with the production flows of each Company.

Many companies use mini-stores or manufacturing supermarkets, in support to the main warehouse, that are inserted directly into the production area. They gather a specific range of components necessary for production, and are positioned directly next to the line itself, near the point of use. The production team defines the materials to be included in the supermarket: it’s especially about rotating components. The warehouse team then picks up the individual components and positions them in the supermarket as expected in the workflow.

The Manufacturing Supermarket Picking and refill processes digitalization allows the monitoring of rotations and operational lead times by aligning stocks with the company Tack Time.

Manufacturing Supermarket Optimization

Thanks to the Open Mind Tech solution, the Manufacturing Supermarket, through the use of Wi-Fi Electronic Labels, allows you to:

  • Guide the operator during the product / item / component picking.
  • Make Kanban replenishment calls to the central warehouse.
  • Guide the operator during the Supermarket refill phase.
  • Historicize and measure operational lead times and stock rotation.

The System eliminates the use of classic Kanban tags related to products/items/components, reducing time and eliminating operational errors.

Thanks to the efficiency of Manufacturing Supermarket refilling operations, it is therefore possible to optimize stocks and spaces dedicated to the Supermarket in compliance with the operational Takt Time of each Company.
