ABSTRACT
A dealer network which stocks 80 percent of all spare parts at location, backed up by 95 percent of the remaining 20 percent being delivered overnight, is the claim of the fork truck manufacturer Linde Lansing. The overnight deliveries are sourced from a state-of-the-art inventory management design run on a double shift system at the company site at Kahl, near Franckfurt, Germany. Using a computer-controlled, chaotic warehousing system, 60,000 spare parts are held, document free, within 11,250 square meters. The bulk of all orders are filled from a fully automated small parts store where picking capacity up to 500 parts an hour is possible from a work rate of 100 double cycles in five aisles.
