Reliable quantitative and timely supplier performance can be achieved through established supply chain programs like the Kanban system and just in time deliveries. A continuous monitoring of markets and the conscientious choice and constant testing of suitable components and suppliers is the foundation for a successful management of these programs.
As soon as we receive the bill of materials (BOM) from the customer, it will initially be checked, processed and optimized for the production. Besides checking the quality and suitability of the components and assemblies, we also convince ourselves of the quality standards, delivery capability and reliability of the suppliers in case the sources of supply are specified by the customer.
One of the strengths of Karré is the monitoring of markets and the worldwide sourcing of components, which are hard to procure. Due to respectable and long-standing regional and international connections with well-chosen suppliers we trace remaining stocks of discontinued components. When delivery bottlenecks occur we explore alternatives. Our clients are delighted when we save them money by means of cost-optimized part lists and procurement from trustworthy sources with best prices.
The goal of our material management is a seamless, undisturbed and flexible supply for our customers through the whole value chain. In the operative purchasing we supervise our suppliers, manage the storage period of our components according to production date and match minimum stocks and delivery dates with the changing of requested dates of our customers.
