How B&B Custom Injection Molding in Michigan Maximizes JIT Efficiency
B&B Custom Molding also uses demand forecasting to anticipate the need for shipments by analyzing patterns of data from our Michigan clients to pre-build future orders. For example, a company may regularly order commercial sprinkler gears during the spring and summer. We can begin the process of organizing a sprinkler gear order based on past order data, thus accelerating the delivery process and more efficiently serving customer demands.
We can also predict components required to make a Michigan customer’s end product using our vendor managed inventory agreement. This agreement allows us to use customer-shared data systems to learn about stock levels in both our Michigan customer’s manufacturing facility or at the end customer’s location. We can study product-ordering cycles to determine the optimum amount of finished stock to keep agreed upon inventory levels. This results in our injection molding Michigan customers being able to maximize the benefits of Just-In-Time delivery, lowering their stored supply levels and increasing the return on their investments. In these ways we can uniquely and efficiently meet the delivery needs of companies seeking expertise in injection molding in Michigan.
