Vision

Centralized control of AMS most fully exploits the WEB enabled capability of AMSAMS administrators control all user access. Exploit unlimited possibilities for communication and decision making to enable flawless service to your customers through the power of the internet, AMS and your inexpensive technology tools such as PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants), wireless Barcode and (RF) radio-frequency readers.  Everyone, from the storeroom, the production floor, from dispatch and to the tarmac, can instantly access pertinent information to assure just-in-time delivery of all products in the production pipeline. 

Maintenance of data for a large number of facilities requires very few people due to the elimination of redundant effort required at multiple facilities.  Unlike other programs, AMS provides flexibility for  local control to add and modify plans for charters and other local catering customers. Up-to-the-minute accurate data enables quick response and high quality service.  Cycle changes occur seamlessly with automatic update of vital information.

Implement all these advantages now with AMS.  We can install and launch AMS on the WEB in as little as ______days.

See our working philosophy and note our Rapid Response to project completion and the list of very satisfied and high exposure clients. 

   



Support

AMS has more than adequately provided technical and operational support with the current support hot-line.  Most Sky Chefs users have been delighted with the level of support over the past 22 years.

As the need for more technical support is required, AMS will utilize members of the Institute of Database Developer (IODD).  This group of highly capable developers work with each other to provide an exceptional brain trust of software intellect.  We are currently working on a software package that uses sophisticated "chat" support for users over the Internet.

AMS operational support could easily be set up at Sky Chefs using Sky Chefs personnel.

THE KANBAN

"The Japanese refer to Kanban as a simple parts-movement system that depends on cards and boxes/containers to take parts from one work station to another on a production line. Kanban stands for Kan- card, Ban- signal. The essence of the Kanban concept is that a supplier or the warehouse should only deliver components to the production line as and when they are needed, so that there is no storage in the production area. Within this system, workstations located along production lines only produce/deliver desired components when they receive a card and an empty container, indicating that more parts will be needed in production. In case of line interruptions, each work-station will only produce enough components to fill the container and then stop (Roos, 1992: 112). In addition, Kanban limits the amount of inventory in the process by acting as an authorization to produce more inventory. Since Kanban is a chain process in which orders flow from one process to another, the production or delivery of components are pulled to the production line. In contrast to the traditional forecast oriented method where parts are pushed to the line (Roos, 1992: 113)."
