What does a typical work-day look like?
I spend around 2-3 hours a day utilising Slim4. I start by looking at selections that contain articles which require my attention. These are mainly articles which need to be ordered urgently due to a high demand or articles that were delivered late.
I then generate orders for suppliers that I have scheduled in the day’s order-scheduler. With specially prepared selections, I review only those products that generate forecast exceptions such as high sales. I have to constantly adjust my sales forecast until the end of the month to ensure the right quantity is calculated. Then, I generate an order within the ERP system from which I send on to the supplier.
In addition, I utilise Slim4 to periodically replenish our 24 branches. In each branch, we hold about 1,800 articles. I determine the sales orders to optimise the delivery process between the logistic center and the goods receiving at the branch. I spend my remaining time liaising and meeting with suppliers.
