Material Management and Krones – a powerful team
What is a Material Management Coach?
First of all: the Material Management Coach is neither a program nor a software package: it’s an employee who specialises in material management; he possesses a very substantial pool of knowledge and long years of experience in the field of warehouse organisation, warehousing processes and logistics. Together with our clients, he formulates an individualised logistical strategy on site. This means he spends a certain amount of time at the client’s production facility, in order to identify a strategy that’s ideally suited to the specific preconditions and requirements involved. In a joint procedure, they optimise the client’s warehousing processes, warehousing organisation and logistics. In order to achieve this, he checks the ERP functions in the client’s system, and together with the client deploys them to purposeful effect.
