SCHÖNENBERGER - think along new lines! at IMB
SCHÖNENBERGER Systeme GmbH is going to present at IMB Cologne from 21st through 24th April in hall 7 – stand no. B 021 – 023. SCHÖNENBERGER presents logistic solutions that have been realized in close cooperation with customers along the textile chain like garments industry, retail and services, furniture/upholstery business as well as the automotive and other light goods industries – world wide.
Frequently changing product ranges with often short delivery times require respective efforts in company organisation. Ensured quality, increased productivity, short throughput times and improved process control are the common demands in all projects.
External cost pressure is opposed to reduction of throughput times, capital tie-up and production costs. Methods of resolution lay not only in the perfectionning of production systems but equally clear and differentiated in the course of operations. Overall solutions in material flow techniques, based on a capacity conform, flexible and integrated information and material flow do more and more come to the fore.
Continuously studying efficient work flow solutions and trying to improve processes along the supply chain has become core business of SCHÖNENBERGER. Together with their customers SCHÖNENBERGER analyses and discusses their logistic visions and – with the customers' success in mind – SCHÖNENBERGER tries to improve their existing organisation and thus help create their specific logistic and material flow system for tomorrow's demands.
In a survey of the German Garments Association more than 2/3 of companies in the garments industry expressed that planned investments have currently been put on hold or will even not be realized at all.
This retention of investments was mainly caused by the global economy crisis as well as remarkable turnover drops in many different businesses. Investments need careful pondering with view to many aspects. Investing in a material management system for example, intervenes in existing structures generating new situations. New processes and operations have to be developped. Employees not only have to understand this new organization but in fact they have to vitalize it.
Examples of application:
1. Flexible Production – individual approach of work places
The Layout is an example of the supreme discipline: the production of jackets Another example for flexible production is a layout for a subcontractor. Varying production of dresses, blouses and skirts; often small batches, various different models and same short delivery dates.
2. Dynamic Storage – Logistic center for manifold tasks
- Within the production chain 'storage' is often‚ static transport'!
- For fashion garments‚ time to market is critical;
- 'Just-in-time' requires keeping a clear head at all times: even at high-pressure deadlines and permanent need for improvisations.
The SCHÖNENBERGER System originated on the factory floorand was further developed in ambitious dynamic businesses. Over the years it has turned into a valued tool for many companies struggling to battle the daily challenges of operational routines. Sometimes it was even called the „artery“ witin the company.
