Fritz Stiefel Industrievertretungen GmbH is a manufacturer and logistics service provider of products and their services in the area of hydraulic and pneumatic components. The Waiblingen-based company’s customers include companies from the automotive and mechanical engineering sectors, as well as special machinery manufacturers.
The company is regularly faced with the challenge of mastering the delivery of products to its customers. It offers its customers a Kanban rack solution with barcode scanner for small and medium-sized parts. However, there were recurring gaps in the timing of parts removal, as well as discrepancies in the timing of empty box placement in the collection area, and the retrieval of empty containers by the Stiefel logistics team. This is why Fritz Stiefel Industrie-Vertretungen GmbH was looking for a more efficient Kanban rack solution.
The goal: Dismantle the prevailing multi-bin system and replace it with a faster process, a reliable RFID Kanban rack system.
