How B&B Custom Injection Molding in Indiana Maximizes JIT Efficiency
B&B Custom Molding uses demand forecasting to anticipate the need for shipments by analyzing patterns of data from our clients to pre-build future orders. For example, a cleaning wholesaler that serves schools may regularly order individual mop heads during the spring and early summer months, coinciding with times when they assess their inventory and identify the need for cleaning products to prepare for the next school year. We can begin the process of organizing a mop head order based on past order data, thus expediting the delivery process and quickly meet customer demands.
Our vendor managed inventory agreement also helps us predict the materials and components necessary to create a customer’s end product. We use customer-shared data systems to read stock levels in both our customer’s manufacturing facility or at the end customer’s location. We can study product-ordering cycles to figure the optimum amount of finished stock to maintain agreed-upon supply levels. This results in our injection molding Indiana customers being able to utilize the benefits of Just-In-Time delivery, reducing their inventory levels and increasing the return on their investments. Because of this we can uniquely and efficiently serve the delivery needs of companies seeking expertise in injection molding in Indiana.
