Why c-parts management?
Procuring c-parts causes high administrative expenditure in relation to the invoiced value of goods. An attribute of c-parts is that, with approximately 80%, they represent a high percentage of the total quantity of parts procured by a company, while they only account for a minor purchasing volume of 20%.
Conditionally c-parts develop the largest order expenditure through the numerous suppliers they have to be procured from and the sheer quantity of individual orders. This leads to disproportionally high processing costs in relation to the purchase price.
The following chart illustrates this problem:
Advantages of c-part management
- optimizing your procurement
– allocation of requirements and procurement is no longer necessary
– termination of schedule checking/dunning processes
– elimination of incoming goods control
– avoidance of administrative errors
– concentration on a- and b-parts
- reducing your logistic costs
– reduction of your stock levels, hence a reduction of your capital commitment
– stock picking and internal transport costs are obsolete, thus reducing the cycle time
– packaging and waste disposal costs are eliminated
- accurate consumables report
– acquisition by means of barcode and scanner
– use of mobile handheld scanners is possible
– error-free purchase orders according to the actual demand using VPN-secured electronic data transfer
- security of supply
– consumer-orientated stocks of required articles
– a single technology for every purpose – system expansion possible for:
– turned parts
– electric small parts and electronic parts
– hydraulic parts
– pneumatic parts

What is the meaning of Kanban?
Kanban is the Japanese word for card or sign. A kanban carries information. It is attached to the product container, passes through the assembly process with the product and contains the necessary working instructions. But a kanban can also initiate the supply of new parts, preassembled parts or raw material. There are different types of kanban. Within a system a kanban is meant to keep the required goods ready in the necessary quantity at the appropriate time.
1.1 installation of a shelf in the customer’s company with two filled containers per item required
1.2 the customer picks the items from the shelf
1.3 the customer takes the containers from the shelf as soon as they are empty – a second container covers the further demand
1.4 BÖGER-Team collects the empty containers at an allocated pick-up point
1.5 BÖGER-Team acquires the demand by accurate scanning and refills the containers
1.6 BÖGER-Team delivers the refilled containers to the customer
1.7 BÖGER-Team refills the customer’s shelf
Consumption-metering in real-time further reduces surplus stock by securing reliable minimum stock amounts.
This allows for individual minimum stock amounts for different c-parts which is especially suited for expensive, unwieldy and scarcely needed items.
2.1 BÖGER provides a shelf with a barcode attached to one container per item
2.2 the customer confirms the consumption by scanning the barcode
2.3 the data of the requirements, as read by the scanner, is fed via a docking station into a program supplied by BÖGER and then transferred to BÖGER using a secure VPN-connection
2.4 BÖGER-Team picks the required articles
2.5 the items are shipped on the same day
