Supply base consolidation
BIM – Bossard Inventory Management enables supply-based consolidation in C-part management - including Bossard and third party C-parts.
How we manage your inventory
BIM is based on an ongoing process. How does it work?
- Bossard offers several different kanban systems. Either Bossard SmartBin, 2bin, Code, SmartCard, or a combination of these systems is used, depending on the situation. SmartBin is particularly suitable for the management of C-parts.
- When the order point is reached, the data is automatically put together and Bossard sends it on to the suppliers integrated into the C-parts management system.
- The C-parts suppliers prepare the required amounts of the products and label them with the location of the customer's warehouse.
- Bossard puts the flow of goods together and produces a consolidated invoice. Delivery is either to the point of use or to the goods receipt point.
The efficient management of C-parts leads to noticeable and sustainable relief to all departments. BIM includes:
Organization of the replenishment
An automatic flow of information
Coordination of the flow of goods
Flexibility and modularity to face new requirements
BIM is part of a network of qualified, customer-approved suppliers, guaranteeing the highest degree of reliability for products and processes.
The result: reduced inventory and lower costs
Keep control over choice, procurement and quality of C-parts of various suppliers
Remain in close contact with your suppliers
You don't have to deal with C-parts
Your supplier's benefits:
Fully comply with their technical responsibilities
Prevent delivery bottlenecks by keeping a guaranteed minimum inventory

Our customer reduced its initial 139 suppliers to only one: Bossard. The number of parts delivered went in the other direction: from 50 at first to 1750 today.
