Modula for Automotive
Automotive dealership parts departments and manufacturers share a common problem: major cost challenges in storing, distributing and selling parts. To meet these challenges, many dealers are taking advantage of automated vertical storage systems to substantially improve customer satisfaction and achieve higher overall profit margins from both their parts and service departments. Modula Vertical Lift Modules are the smart automotive parts storage solution to save space, increase productivity and accuracy and streamline a spare parts department operations.
With Modula automatic vertical warehouses you can:
• Manage inventory in your dealership’s parts department,
service center and manufacturing facilities, saving up to 90%
of floor space compared to traditional storage systems.
• Store parts in one physical location, where everything is tracked so knowing your stock levels or doing reorders is quick and easy.
• Improve efficiency and achieve higher overall profit margins. You can stock any kind of product in an automatic vertical warehouse; from spare parts to accessories, from tools to mechanical components, from nuts and bolts all the way to very large/heavy items such motors. Everything is stored ergonomically and within easy reach of your operators, without racks, shelves, mezzanines
or ladders. Modula offers various types of vertical warehouses, with different sizes, heights, volumes, options, bay types and tray configurations.
Buffer storage for parts or components needing to be stored for a certain amount of time before being moved on to subsequent production phases. Once stored, the items are then retrieved by operators or by anthropomorphous robots which place them back into the production line.
Emergency buffer storage: should a production phase upstream of the Modula come to a halt, materials are pulled directly from the warehouse to keep the production process flowing. If the problem is downstream, what has been produced so far can be stored and the Modula system gets filled with semi-finished products.
Dual front and rear loading with opposed bays: logistics operators load ready materials on one side and assembly or production technicians unload them from the opposed bay.
What volume of orders can your parts department generate? How important is throughput when locating components? An efficient parts department definitely increases performance and profitability in your dealership! With Modula units, parts are stored in a single clean, secure and easy-to-access location. Modula`s software WMS allows you to manage your inventory in real-time and keep track of your low stock items so you can best manage your reorders. Quick turnaround with all parts in a small footprint.
