“As a single management and storage point, Indian Technological Warehouse in Chakan, Pune aims at maintaining total availability of all spare parts for their operators, optimizing their logistics through analysis and processing of data collected in real time. The warehouse operations will later be integrated with ERP Warehouse Management model for optimized inventory management and logistics processes,” said Manish Mehan, CEO, thyssenkrupp Elevator (India).
With a total surface area of 10,000 sq. ft., the new warehouse in Pune holds up to over 5000 different parts and components for maintenance service. In addition, it has the capacity to handle more than 10,000 orders per year. As part of the group’s global spare parts business initiative, additional central storage points worldwide will be launched across different continents. “With this new project thyssenkrupp aims to reduce the environmental impact and promote a more sustainable supply chain. thyssenkrupp Elevator promotes interoperability and efficiency by eliminating unnecessary journeys for shipment of components,” added Mehan.
By ensuring round-the-clock availability of spare parts and distributing them in time to its service technicians, thyssenkrupp provides an effective solution to minimize downtimes of defunct elevators. As a result, there is a 10% saving per year in the number of trips made by technicians to pick up components at their local office between jobs. In addition, there will be a 20% optimization in waiting time for the customer until the elevator is put back into service – simply because technicians will have the spare part at their disposal immediately.
