How B&B Custom Injection Molding in Ohio 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 prebuild future orders. For example, a company may regularly order more garage door window frames during the spring and summer, coinciding with new trends in new home construction. We can begin the process of organizing a garage door window order based on past order data, thus expediting the delivery process and meeting customer demands more efficiently.
Our vendor managed inventory agreement also helps us accurately predict the components necessary to make a customer’s end product. We use customer-shared data systems to gain information on stock levels in both our 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 supply levels. This results in our injection molding Ohio customers being able to maximize the benefits of just-in-time delivery, lowering their inventory 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 Ohio.
