Logistics and production control
Valmet Automotive has a Group level logistics strategy, emphasizing optimization of money and information flows. These are keys for managing the material flow. The target is a lean material flow, e.g. optimization of stocks, whereby the components arrive and are available just in time.
Through this optimization, Valmet Automotive has substantially reduced the number of components and amount of invested capital. The packaging is optimized so that most packages can be utilized on the production line, making re-packaging unnecessary. Collapsible packages reduce our carbon foot print.
Our services cover the whole process from the moment an order has been received to the finished vehicle being delivered. In between the order is translated into component and material inputs, dispatched to the suppliers. The component and materials deliveries are matched with the vehicle orders, and the production is effectively adjusted to the customer's needs.
