Raw material holdings reduced by 14%. Completed goods increased by 37%. Baxi gets an improved and efficient supply chain for managing material moves between 3 sites. MULTI-SITE DATA CAPTURE REQUIREMENT The Baxi group needed to implement a more efficient and accurate supply chain to manage material movements across the 3 sites.
This covered the entire process, from goods in at Bamber Bridge, through manufacturing and onto dispatch to one of the assembly operations at Padiham or Birmingham. For an operation of this size and complexity, this meant data had to be captured at many points in the process to cope with the large number of material movements.
Baxi decided to implement the Movex ERP solution, but realised that they needed an automated data capture system to be fully integrated with Movex, that would enable them to maximise the benefit of their investment.
