Finalist of Austrian Logistic Award 2016June 21, 2016
With Smart Factory Logistics a finalist at the Austrian logistics award: Bossard enables smart C-part management at Komptech GmbH
As a result of our value stream analysis, we implemented a new logistics solution for C-part management at Komptech. C-parts from Bossard and other third parties are managed with SmartBin now. Out of stock situations will not occur anymore. With this project, we ranked amongst the three finalists of the Austrian logistics award.
Within the “getting lean” framework, one of the goals was organizing the assembly better, thus optimizing the total cost of ownership and increasing the manufacturing productivity with better throughput and fewer stock outages.
Komptech is a leading international technology supplier of machinery and systems for the mechanical and mechanical-biological treatment of solid waste and for the treatment of biomass as a renewable energy source.
