Just-In-Time (JIT) refers to delivering parts or materials to manufacturers when they are needed for assembly. The primary goal of Just-in-Time is to produce goods with minimal waste including time, resources, and materials. Just-in-Time works to reduce inventory quantities or buffer inventory by providing manufacturers with components, and consumers with finished goods on their schedule.
Just-In-Sequence (JIS), also known as In-Line Vehicle Sequencing (ILVS), or Sequential Parts Delivery (SPD), takes Just-in-Time strategies one step further by ensuring parts are delivered at the scheduled time and in the exact order needed for assembly, eliminating picking parts at the OEM warehouse. While sequenced loads reduce time, it adds an additional layer of complexity to the manufacturing process. Communication between OEM and supplier is even more critical when operating with Just-in-Sequence since BSC must prepare, as well as ship components in the correct order.
Logistics Postponement is a supply chain process which delays production steps, (form, identity, or place) until customer commitments have been obtained. Postponement maximizes benefit and minimizes risk by delaying further investment into a product. BSC provides value-added postponement services such as kit to stock (kitting items to be held as finished goods stock), kit to order (kitting items as customers order), value added repack (repacking parts for line presentation, assembly in a clean room, or relabel for pass thru), and contract packaging (packaging items for retail sale).
No matter what fulfillment methods you require, be it trucking, parcel shipping, storage, food grade transportation, and much more, Bluegrass has a value-added solution for you.
