Our Manufacturing & Production Process
We release quantities into production and set up the ERP system to grab a 21 day lot of parts. For example, if we are going administer 17 runs of a production part in a year, a 21-day lot will allow us to manage the inventory in order to deliver on time. Seaberg also incorporates a buffering system that creates protection for us and our promises. This guards against any schedule fluctuations.
With the assistance of our ERP system, we are able to manufacture and ship, both to inventory, not to the “work order” itself. So the lead time we have on the parts for our customers’ long run or short run production runs isn’t necessarily based on what it takes to “get material” for that particular run. Based on our individual customer needs, we assign the right number of days that enables us to ship from inventory, with a safety margin.
By managing inventory, this “buffering” or planning ahead of allows us to hit our outstanding delivery goals for our customers. This all might sound a bit complicated, but it’s not for us. For both metal fabrication and machining, we have been doing this for years and it’s engrained in our culture. At Seaberg, we GUARANTEE that you will not only get the quality and service you deserve, but the right number of parts, whatever that may be.
