How DSC helped Pioneer meet kitting demands
A logistics partner as an integral part of the kit-building process
DSC Logistics efficiently handles distribution for Pioneer's Industrial Systems and Business Solutions (ISB) and Home Electronics (HEC) divisions. But, that isn't all; DSC also provides value-added services by assembling home theater kits for the HEC division.
DSC packages a plasma TV panel, speakers, receiver and stand into a home theater system. The biggest challenge stems from the kitting cycle: kitting is light at the beginning of the month, heavy at the end.
We can flex our well-trained work force and go from one to four lines to handle the spikes in demand that are part of the electronics business. The campus environment of our multi-building Logistics Center means that we can be flexible with equipment and space.
With our inventory visibility across the web, we help Pioneer keep inventory levels low and manage the deliveries of components sourced from overseas complicated by long lead times. We also give Pioneer the visibility to knock downs not supplied by their previous logistics providers-an added advantage.
