JIT & JIS Sequencing
Supporting advanced manufacturing and production through JIT and JIS sequencing
JIT and JIS sequencing and logistics solutions to maximise assembly line space, minimise in-house inventory, increase turnaround for engineering changes, and ultimately decrease overall cost per vehicle or item produced.
Amco’s customer base includes an increasing number of Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers who must comply with Just-In-Time (JIT) and Just-In-Sequence (JIS) requirements for the OEM automotive manufacturers they supply.
Amco offer JIT and JIS sequencing and logistics solutions to maximise assembly line space, minimise in-house inventory, increase turnaround for engineering changes, and ultimately decrease overall cost per vehicle or item produced. JIT and JIS have their roots in the automotive industry, but are now established in other sectors too.
JIS comes from production logistics and takes JIT one large step forward with JIS becoming more of an inventory strategy. Essentially during the Amco JIS processes, we ensure that the required stock or components are delivered in time and in the right quantities (JIT), BUT, that they are also delivered in the right order or sequence for use.
Meeting JIS requirements
We deliver components and parts to the production line in time and in the right sequence for assembly.
In order to be prepared to meet these business requirements, the Amco staff focus on systems capable of translating the incoming production requirements, verifying the products built, validating the truck load sequence and supporting the actual production sequence itself.
From the supplier’s perspective, the benefits of sequencing include the fact that the visibility of required parts is more accurate, using information for production and purchasing requirements. When implemented successfully, it also increases customers’ (manufacturers’) satisfaction levels, opening the doors for more sequencing work from other customers.
Meeting The Demand
The demands of the OEM and in turn Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers means we are constantly looking for efficiencies to add even more value to our supply chain. We believe JIS is amongst our strongest USPs and a definite order winner.
It is our Amco aim to offer flexibility; aligning manufacturing and supply chains in such a well-managed fashion that there is no down time and very little stock required.
Our JIT processes leave the stock with the supplier as much as possible and only warehouse when absolutely necessary and for a short a time as necessary. Delivering to the OEM and production line when needed.
For example: We ship and collect vehicle dashboard assemblies from overseas, and sub-assemblies for elsewhere and delivery them to production when they are needed and in the order they are used.
The Amco JIS/JIT solution is linked to OEM production and encompasses the whole JIS process from receiving a data call off via EDI, to sequencing, implementation of traceability and delivery scheduling.
