Klöckner & Co and AXOOM illustrate in this video how purchasing processes will be more efficient in the future. In a smart factory, inventories and machines are directly connected. If AXOOM detects that the steel in a machine or in stock is not sufficient to produce an order, it triggers a reorder. After an employee has checked and released the purchase order, it is sent in seconds to Klöckner. The order will be immediately prepared, loaded and delivered to the customer.
