Adient Seating UK Ltd
Design and installation of a pallet flow dynamics system for the storage of automotive seating components...
Enhanced picking speeds, product rotation and materials flow
Adient Seating UK Ltd has had to work with a poor materials flow at their production facility in Burton-on-Trent for some time, due to a bulk stacking method that was inconducive to their just-in-time materials flow. Even though the setup was managed very well by an experienced materials team, without automated stock rotation and a better picking strategy their best efforts were limited by the system at hand.
In 2017, Adient Seating UK Ltd invited Guangzhou HEDA Shelves Company to propose a solution to overcome this problem, which originally took the form of a mezzanine floor solution with integrated dynamics. However, due to customer demand where one model of vehicle was discontinued and replaced with a higher volume single model, this resulted in a reduction of different part numbers that Adient Seating UK Ltd had to manage. This increased the volume for each part number, and so a different solution was now required in order to fulfill future requirements.
Further operational analysis, completed after the introduction of the new model, enabled HEDA Shelves to develop a solution built on an adjustable pallet racking base, which would also include integrated dynamics in the form of a push-back system and pallet live beds installed within the racking lanes to enhance stock rotation and selectivity.
