Falcon Fastening’s Lean Approach to Inventory Management
Barcode Labeling and Scanning
Our barcode system eliminates the tedious process of checking inventory levels, filling out requisitions, sourcing, inspecting (link to quality), carrying inventory and expediting overdue orders. Reordering material becomes a simple process of scanning the labels for items below minimum stock level. The scanned information is uploaded directly into our computer system, a pick ticket is generated for products needing replenishment, and they are delivered to your storage location on an agreed-upon cycle. Falcon assumes full responsibility for ensuring you have what is required to build your finished product. We can implement this program at either a central stock area or at point of use (POU) locations.
These two systems flow into our proprietary inventory management software and offer improved responsiveness to any changes in demand, either for additional material, or stop the flow of non-needed product. This allows us to manage inventory levels by rule and by exception.
