Better Supplier Labeling: Part 9 [Video]
Welcome back to the Loftware blog. Today we're continuing our discussion of supplier labeling, namely how a standardized labeling solution can increase the efficiency of everyday manufacturer processes.
It's worth thinking about just how many departments within each manufacturer deal with raw material orders - this is the chain of communication that is simplified by improved supplier labeling.
Planners forecast production needs. The procurement department places material orders. The operations team oversees those items when they arrive. Warehouse managers organize them until they're needed - that's four groups, just for a start.
All of these teams are counting on effective processes, and when there's a lack of clarity, they can all be impacted. Thus, the efficiency gains from more effective supplier labeling will be felt throughout the company.
