Want to manage your own inventory, but simplify the process? The Allegis SCS CMI support team can map, organize and bar-code your stock locations, while working with you to establish kanban reorder points so inventory management can be a whole lot easier.
We can even bundle and label your parts for predetermined cell locations, while at the same time managing the parts individually in multiple production floor locations. Our team will continuously monitor kanban quantities, making sure stocking locations stay within target inventory levels and help you maximize inventory turns.
Many organizations want to focus on their core operations and simplify inventory management. SCS VMI lets them do exactly that. Using our team’s supply chain experience and responsiveness, we will assign an in-plant employee to work alongside your team. Yes, you read that right. Our in-plant team member will:
- Receive, scan and stock inventory in cell locations
- Work with your materials team sourcing and managing discreet purchase orders
- Work with your team to map product movement through your current system and identify opportunities to eliminate waste
Inventory management can be a real balancing act as you try to avoid production down time due to out-of-stock components, and reduce the expense of overstocking the wrong part or over-ordering the wrong inventory. SCS inventory management from Allegis can help.
With the ability to maintain optimal inventory levels from suppliers to your parts bins, Allegis SCS inventory management can:
- Simplify your inventory management process
- Provide the right parts, at the right time and at the right location
- Free up your labor resources and production space
- Work alongside your team to improve processes and inventory flow
- Simplify your billing by consolidating many supplier invoices into one
We believe simple, seamless data exchange is the foundation for successful companies to take advantage of global sources of supply, production and distribution. EDI is most commonly used to send and receive purchase orders and invoices and has been the global leader in electronic cost savings for companies for many years.
Allegis supports the following EDI document sets in ANSI X12 format:
- 810 Invoices
- 850 Purchase Orders
- 856 Advance Shipment Notices
- 855 Purchase Order Acknowledgements
- 860 Purchase Order Change Requests
- 997 Functional Acknowledgements
Imagine getting your components when you need them, not early, not late. The SCS Dock-to-Dock program can consolidate, label and deliver your parts on your production schedule. An advance shipping notice (ASN) can even be sent to you with details of your shipment to ensure accuracy, while reducing time and cost in your receiving department. Allegis SCS can synchronize supply and demand while balancing inventory exposure across your entire operation.
Give your company the confidence in its ability to deliver products and services that consistently meet your customer needs and expectations. The Allegis SCS-QMS has been developed based on practical, but stringent requirements of a wide range of organizations, including the military. From simple dimensional layouts and parts requirements to inspection records and certificates of conformance, SCS-QMS can tailor a quality program to meet your business goals.
Let Allegis set you free from kitting parts. We can prepackage virtually any combination of components to your specifications, freeing your labor resources and production space. We will label your bags and boxes with part numbers, quantity, description, barcode, and even your logo.
