Tablogix are making use of the most modern techniques to improve efficiency
Tablogix took the opportunity provided by the Moscow International Logistics Forum (MMLF) 2017 to show how they are using some of the latest tools to remain competitive in the current economic circumstances.
Boris Romanov, the Head of the Quality Management Department, explained how implementation that latest version of the ISO 9001 Quality Management System (ISO 9001:2015) radically transforms not just the way a business operates but also how it relates to external partners to improve the overall business environment. Previous versions of the International Standard had focussed on putting systems in place and auditing them. The latest version is based on the PDCA cycle (Plan, Do, Check, Act) which places greater emphasis on measuring inputs and outputs of processes, continuous improvement and risk management. Only those companies, particularly in logistics, who have fully implemented this standard will remain competitive in the developing business climate.
Alfred Eckl, Business Development Director, showed how new technologies and proven Quality Management techniques can speed up the supply chain, reduce costs and eliminate errors. He particularly mentioned the value of Lean Engineering using 6 Sigma and Kaizen techniques. He also spoke about a number of techniques used, particularly in the automotive industry, that are of relevance to logistics providers, including Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), The Eight Disciplines (8D), Management Information systems and Benchmarking. Finally he explained how supply chains of the future will be paperless and make extended use of technologies such as RFID to minimise handling and speed up processing.
Over 500 senior managers and logistics professional attended the 20th edition of MMLF which included training sessions, a full conference with panel sessions and visits to some of the leading logistics operators in Moscow and the region
