The ebp Inventory Optimization Tool

Are your stocks too high? Is your stock full and you still can't maintain the required service level? Would you like to increase your delivery service level and reduce inventory costs at the same time? Do you have the right planning strategies for the consumption behavior and replenishment times of your articles?

Warehouse Logistics Benchmarking with the ebp Logistics Check

Is your warehouse logistics still efficient? Do you have transparency about the real costs in the warehouse processing by your external logistics service provider? Are you still satisfied with the performance and costs of your external logistics partner? Would you like to know how much your warehouse logistics should (maximally) cost according to current standards and with optimised processes?

These are questions that many logistics decision-makers are confronted with. It is often difficult to assess whether warehouse processing is still cost-optimal and why an external logistics service provider is deviating further and further from the plan and why its services are becoming more expensive. Often there is a lack of transparency in the logistics processes, and cost increases cannot be tracked reliably. For those responsible, the question is rightly raised: What are the optimal costs for a comparable logistics concept?

Warehouse logistics benchmarking with a standardized, tool-based logistics check is the right approach here. ebp-consulting has developed a consulting product in which current processes in warehouse logistics - independent of the purpose of the warehouse - are reproduced in detail and the respective target costs are determined. The result of the logistics check is a well-founded statement about what logistics should cost on the basis of current processes and the current use of technology. The company's own process performance or that of the commissioned logistics service provider is thus provided with a critical mirror in the form of a resilient and comprehensible benchmark.

This procedure, in which the processes are recorded and analysed in detail, also makes it possible in most cases to derive elementary process improvements using lean logistics principles. Using the same tool-based consulting approach, optimization scenarios for your warehouse processes can be developed, evaluated in terms of costs and compared with the current situation. This is the way to achieve a real benchmark and significant efficiency increase potentials.

The advantages of the ebp logistics check in brief:

  • Presentation of the actual process in detail according to process steps and costs
  • Process evaluation on the basis of standardized MTM time studies in a pre-structured planning database
  • Determination of costs per individual process
  • Calculation of the imputed total costs, e.g. per article group, as benchmark
  • Derivation of optimizations in the individual process steps
  • Mapping and evaluation of different scenarios
  • Low consulting effort because everything is systematized and preconfigured
  • Manageable project duration from 8 to 10 weeks

Reducing cost of Logistics through Big Data Analytics

Fort the first time ever, ebp-consulting will be presenting the „Analytics as a Service” tool set (AaaS) at the 2019 LogiMat. This tool set identifies great savings potential through mass data analysis in the areas of logistics, transport and stocks and therefore enables users to find targeted solutions for optimisation.

Big data used to be just the downside of analysis phases when it comes to efficiency gain projects. Using the right efficient data tools (i.e. special BI software solutions) and enhanced programs for analysis and planning, makes it possible to carry out frequent and systematic logistics optimisations.

ebp-consulting recently uses big data applications for transport and container efficiency, optimised in-plant routing of traffic and reduction of stock considering the adaption of disposition rules.

Standard interfaces enable connectivity to ERP-. WMS- and TM- Systems. User friendly front ends and predefined reports also allow a cockpit like usage of these tools. By using the “Analytics as a Service” tool set, ebp- consulting offers its clients the opportunity to identify potential and define measures for improvement. Standardised checks in logistics offer interested partners a great start into up to date logistic optimisation.

Benefits of ebp-consultings „Analytics as a Service (AaaS)“ tool set on the point:

  • Fast and timely detection of potential through high automation and defined data structure.
  • Use of tested and validated optimisation routines.
  • Clear visualisation and analysis via user friendly dash boards and structured reporting.
  • Predefined optimisation solutions for i.e. the optimisation of transport costs and reduction of stocks.
  • Standardised transmission of data from operational Systems.
