  1. BIF Presentation BEMA Annual Meeting - June 18, 2010 Wild

    Dunes Resort, Charleston, South Carolina
  2. None
  3. Problem Statement • Bakery engineers strive to procure a spare

    part for every need, leading to: – Warranties are void when needed – after 1 yr. – Obsolete spare parts because effective preventive maintenance programs are designed to prevent unplanned events – Inventory readiness of aged inventory – Managing min/max and reorder points – Proper & timely identification of spare parts
  4. Possible Solutions • What are some ideas: – VMI or

    Vender Managed Inventory – 3rd Party Store Rooms – Accept more risk of down time – Spare for everything & accept current model – Think outside the box & develop new solutions
  5. Beyond the Box • Vendors own stock - Consignment •

    Purchase takes place upon usage • Warranty begins at invoicing • Inventory levels tracked real-time using RFID • Vendors gain useful data patterns & visibility • Bakers get 1 year warranty on all purchases
  6. • Forward Work - Managing Inventory – Equipment Revisions/Design Changes

    • Effective Notification • How do we control or eliminate obsolete Inventory – Return for credit • Is there a renewed warrant – Rebuilds/Vendor Service Calls • How do we protect the facility from inventory depletion • How do we minimize the risk of extended downtime – Third Party OEM’s (Controls, Motors, Etc.) • Who should manage them • What will take to get them on board
  7. Open Discussion • Vendors & Bakers – Thoughts – Concerns

    – Path forward – Next Steps
