Sequential Parts Delivery

 

SequentialPartsWhether you call it in-line vehicle sequencing (ILVS), sequential parts delivery (SPD), or just-in-time (JIT), MAI companies deliver assemblies to manufacturers when they're needed and in the proper build sequence. Our SPD services gives you online inventory visibility and lower operating costs. Just think of what you can do with the extra floor space freed up by the reduction of inventory. MAI's innovative SPD meets and exceeds industry standards and can integrate with the production process of any OEM.

From translating the incoming requirements, to providing needed production options, to labeling and shipping, MAI companies brings the technology and expertise to ensure our customers always receive the right component, in the right sequence, at the right time. Our SPD system translates incoming production requirements into the actual production sequences, verifies the products built, and validates the truckload sequence.
