Challenges

While Adipack thrived in many areas, there have been some serious problems lately in their production process. These challenges covered logistical lapses, inventory differences, supplier and customer communication gaps, and delayed assemblies and deliveries.These obstacles cast a shadow on Adipack's efficiency, causing disruptions across the entire production chain.

Logistical Discrepancies: Adipack encountered difficulties in managing their logistical operations. This encompassed challenges in organizing orders for raw materials and components needed for the manufacturing process.
Inventory Management Issues: The company struggled with maintaining an accurate and updated inventory system. This led to discrepancies between recorded inventory and actual available components, causing delays in production due to missing parts.
Supplier and Customer Communication Gaps: Adipack faced challenges in effectively communicating and coordinating with suppliers for raw materials and external processes. Additionally, customer expectations regarding spare part deliveries were not being met, leading to dissatisfaction.
Delayed Assemblies and Deliveries: The inconsistencies in inventory and logistics impacted the assembly process, causing delays in completing projects and meeting delivery timelines for both parts and finished products.
Post-Project Component Identification: At the conclusion of projects, Adipack lacked a robust system to track and identify the components used. This led to discrepancies when clients reported missing parts upon the receipt of the final product.
Organizational Structure and Workflow: There were concerns about the overall organization and workflow within the company. The absence of a structured system led to inefficiencies in processes, making it challenging to maintain a synchronized production line.
