Abstract

1. ABSTRACT The idea relates to the area of supply Chain and logistics. Prior Art is an individual foam cut (= TRAY) which outlines the exact measures of a/several specific part/s, also known as Shadow boards/foam cut. The TRAY Concept is a universal, flexible solution for an unpacked delivery of vehicle material, which results in a more efficient and sustainable supply chain, with decreased non value added activities (like unpacking, sorting, disposal), higher quality, better overview of parts, reduced costs for packaging material. This has the following advantages: - elimination of preparatory activities, like unpacking, disposal and sorting within manufacturing area - reduced time frame and costs for implementation compared to other concepts - universal, flexible usage for all manufacturing areas and all sites - increased sustainability within supply chain between HUB (Warehouse) and Point of Use (Manufacturing area)
