Plan For Every Part Methodology
Millions of parts move in, through, and out of a warehouse at any given time.
By sheer volume alone, it’s understandable to think the absence of a few parts won’t make a difference.
Comprehensive Logistics thinks differently. At every touch point, STREME™, our synchronous, proprietary warehouse management system (WMS), ensures that all parts are tracked and available where and when they’re needed.
Integrated with our STREME WMS is a Plan For Every Part (PFEP) methodology, which drives every function Comprehensive Logistics performs in a warehouse and manufacturing-support operation. Through in-depth analysis of numerous factors, such as pull-signal definition, facility location and layout, material flows, work instructions, and scope changes, Comprehensive Logistics documents and manages every part from supplier release to end user.
With a PFEP, Comprehensive Logistics defines and manages characteristics and information about each part, including its source, how it’s purchased and received, its weight and dimensions, its stackability, how it’s packaged, stored and delivered, and its consumption rate and rate variability.
As a result, our OEM customers know exactly where parts are, at any given time, so they can be fully confident that their production schedules are being met.
