Nowadays, electronic system solutions are the be-all and end-all of an efficient sourcing of C parts.
For instance, for Gerhardi, a driver of innovation, a scanner-based sourcing system with connection to an online shop is an indispensable precondition for a smoothly running just-in-time production. This is why they looked for an automated process that was standardized but still allowed for flexible orders as well.

The ROSEN Group in Lingen (Ems) expanded their logistics with the first Kanban system in the Emsland region equipped with RFID technology by Würth Industrie Service. The Kanban system consits of a 22 meter shelf rack with about 1,200 individual storage places and a iBOX® from the CPS®RFID system family. This intelligent pallet box transmits the demand, and thus any reorders of C-Parts, to the ERP system of Würth Industrie Service using the wireless RFID technology.
