Irrespective of the possibility for customer-specific configurability of the KROMI TOOL MANAGEMENT 360° concept, there are combinations of the four service areas that frequently occur depending on the relevant industry sector.
Below are four combinations that vividly illustrate where a number of our customers focus as part of our Best-In-Class partnership:
TOOLS + LOGISTICS = CONVENIENCE
TOOLS + TECHNOLOGY = INNOVATION
TECHNOLOGY + DATA = IMPROVEMENT
DATA + LOGISTICS = TRANSPARENCY
A combination of purchasing management and KROMI’s proven logistics systems is ideal for starting up in modern tool management. The spectrum ranges from uncomplicated supplier deliveries to the management of a Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI). As a one-stop solution in production, our KTC automatic tool dispensers allow production staff direct access to the range of articles around the clock without interruptions.
By combining purchasing management and technology management, we give our customers the access they need to market innovations. A customised mix of cost efficient standard tools and high-performance special tools enables optimum costs per component to be achieved. As and when required, we also work together with marketleading tool manufacturers to develop new tools for customer applications.
Particularly in series production, stable processes and minimum costs per component are vital. Continuous improvement processes (CIP) safeguard the status quo and systematically search for potential performance improvements. With the KROMI Engineering Process KEP, we continuously ensure a cost-optimised process design. Data-based consumption control makes it possible to draw significant conclusions about process quality practically in real time.
Customers who are especially concerned about greater transparency in their consumption can be optimally supported by our services in the areas of logistics and data management. Based on a digital article catalogue, the KROMI eCommerce software KEC and the fully digital connection of the KROMI logistics systems KTC and KanBan, we promise not only 100% availability on site, but also full cost control in tool consumption.
