A developer and manufacturer of advanced technology for high-tech lithography, metrology and software solutions for the semiconductor industry.
The end-to-end process of low value, fast moving parts caused a high workload throughout the organisation. The main challenge was to optimise the inbound supply chain and material handling while decreasing contamination risks and improving material availability at the point of use.
At the start of the partnership, MAG45 performed a thorough scan of the current situation in collaboration with the customer. We jointly established a clear baseline and key improvement areas, and MAG45 proposed tailored solutions to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership.
After the go decision, the proposed solutions were implemented by a dedicated project team to ensure a seamless transition towards the optimized situation. The following solutions have been installed:
MAG45 manages the supply of BOM tail / bulk items up to the point of use at the manufacturing sites, with a 100% item availability and reduced contamination risk. People at manufacturing, procurement, and material handling spend significantly less time on item handling and availability, allowing them to focus on their core business.
"MAG45 has met all the goals that we agreed on; the VMI floor stock helped us to improve material availability and create lean processes on the production floor. Overall, we have been able to realise Total Cost of Ownership savings in the areas of material cost, handling and inventory."
“MAG45 has a continuous top rating at supplier level performance, and was the first supplier in the history to reach a 100% performance level.”
