GoIndustry DoveBid helps generate over US$14 million in revenue for the Automotive Industry

Jack Reinelt, CEO, GoIndustry DoveBid is featured in the January issue ofAutomotive Industries.

As world leaders in Copenhagen are looking to help make the world a greener place, quietly in the background are companies like GoIndustry DoveBid that are doing their part to help recycle assets in some of the world’s biggest industries.

In the January issue of Automotive Industries, Jack Reinelt, CEO of GoIndustry DoveBid discusses how his company has helped 1200 auto-related companies manage surplus or idle assets, generating over US$ 14 million in revenue.

Via online auctions, negotiated sales, and asset management software, GoIndustry DoveBid has created an industrial used equipment marketplace for the automotive industry (and other industries), which has attracted buyers from United States, Canada, Finland, Taiwan, Egypt, Mexico and the United Kingdom. The ultimate solution in global recycling for the big automotive businesses.

From an economic point of view, Reinelt highlights how his company’s services have been critical to helping the automotive industry, particularly in North America, to unlock the value of idle assets allowing clients access to much needed capital.

"The primary issue for all types of companies during the current crisis is accessibility to capital and credit" says Reinelt, "Our ability to sell surplus assets to raise cash and redeploy assets to save on CAPEX has been critical especially within the North American automotive sector. Many companies now realize that it makes very good financial sense to implement programs to more effectively manage their return on industrial assets on an ongoing basis, not just when there is a crisis"

Reinelt explains that the benefit to the seller is to better understand the remaining value within their assets, and to determine if they can be re-deployed internally-saving them the capital of buying new equipment. Whereas the buyers get help to locate a wide variety of assets which are much more cost effective than buying them new.

When asked about what services the automotive industry will require in the future, Reinelt says, “I firmly believe that a full understanding of asset utilization both in a production environment and non-production environment is a key to improved profitability.”

To read the full length feature of Jack Reinelt’s interview, see the January Issue of Automotive Industries or go to http://www.ai-online.com/Adv/Previous/show_issue.php?id=3041&search=true.

Kemble & Co. Online Auction, closing 21 Oct 2009

The Kemble & Co. auction, held by GoIndustry DoveBid will take place on 21st October at 12pm BST, including amongst other items, a large number of various woodworking machinery, sanders, moulders, edgers, guillotines, dust extraction systems and forklift trucks that were used at various points over the company’s 98 year history in the UK to produce some of the best-loved pianos of the twentieth century.

At a time when the Victorian-english middle class were desperately trying to conceal their piano legs to prevent the sight of perceived indecency, the musical world was starting to whip up a storm in households everywhere. The popularity of the Lieder and solo piano pieces of Schumann and Schubert, such as Die Schöne Müllerin and the Impromptus had elicited a desire throughout European home-owning communities to enjoy music making as an active hobby, rather than simply as a passive concert-goer. Spurred on by the Industrial revolution, people found that they not only had more time to indulge in their personal lives, but the price of the average mid-range piano fell to levels that enabled people outside of the upper classes and land-owning gentry to buy a mid-range piano - the equivalent of a modern-day Sky-box fitted, HD-ready plasma TV screen (should this be more your cup of tea, feel free to find more details on these sorts of items at our FAB Berlin Auction or in our range of Audio Visual Exchanges!).

Subsequently, in homes and pubs throughout Britain, pianos started to become a mod-con of the early twentieth century. Composers such as Elgar, Debussy, Prokofiev and Strauß started to write piano miniatures and simpler, non-virtuosic pieces for the newfound domestic markets, resulting in publishers such as Boosey and Hawkes, Universal Edition and Durand cashing in on the public excitement.

And so Michael Kemble, in 1911, founded his own piano making business in North London, providing affordable yet quality-produced pianos that could give the people of London, the world-centre of piano-making at the time, and later the whole world, access to buy their very own model. And so the story started. Among the ranks of Bosendorfer, Danemann and later Yamaha, Kemble have produced and continue to produce quality, affordable pianos for several generations of professionals, amateurs and everyone in between, moving in 1960 to new premises under the guidance of Brian Kemble MBE, then already into the third generation.

Kemble won the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement and was, and indeed still is, a key part of the music industry. Various musicians from John Lennon and Bjorn Ulvaeus to Arvo Pärt have said to have owned a Kemble and the motto always seems to ring true that ‘One note and you’ll know it’s a Kemble’.

Throughout the twentieth-century, the art of the song was a direct result of the popularity of the piano, and composers all the way from Mahler, Berlioz, Poulenc, Vaughan Williams and Britten, through to Boy George, Elton John, Alicia Keys and Muse have written songs that rely on the ease-of-access to composition that the piano affords.

Yet, with the rise and popularity of the radio, television and other, less rigour-demanding pastimes, the chances of finding a piano in the average home fell. By the 1990s, the guitar had far out-done the piano in terms of popularity with bands like Oasis, Green Day and Blur sending the instrument to dizzying heights, propelling the guitar to the forefront of the garage-band across the western world. And yet, the piano still holds its place as the instrument that has a fullness of sound across 8 octaves, which the guitar simply cannot match. Only the piano can truly show the talents of composers such as Rachmaninov and Chopin, Takemitsu and Bartok.

And so Kemble has made its mark in history by being the last piano manufacturer in the UK, and will continue to do write history as the maker of affordable, quality pianos at its new production headquarters in the far east, in association with Yamaha. Kemble & Co. have always shown a truly remarkable feat of dedication to production and craftsmanship that should be remembered for the 120,000 pianos they produced during their time in the UK, the majority of which still adorn front rooms and practice rooms the world-over.

Used Equipment sales show green shoots of recovery

Demand for used large tonnage Automotive Specification Injection Moulding machines has increased to levels not experienced for two years.

Tier 1 and 2 suppliers across Europe and the Eastern Block are gearing up their manufacturing facilities to cope with the increased demand.

GoIndustry DoveBid has received enquiries for Western machines in the 2000 to 4000 Tonne bracket. Specific enquiries are for Husky, Krauss Maffei and Engel. An automotive spec’d machine traditionally has a small shot weight compared to the size of the machine ranging in the 4Kg to 8 Kg range.

David Heaselgrave, Global Head of marketing for Go-Dove says; “the downturn in the markets and the credit crisis hit many Automotive suppliers hard. Two major plants in the UK in ecomold and Visteon have closed reducing the capacity in the marketplace. Once the major vehicle manufacturers had run down their stocks then the Tier 1 and 2 suppliers who remained were in a stronger position with the ability to attract a greater slice of the market. This has led to a shortage of large capacity injection moulding machines. Whilst new machines can be ordered, the lead time in some cases is 12 months and the demand needs to be satisfied now hence an increase in the interest levels in quality used machines”

GoIndustry DoveBid, are the world leaders in the valuation and sale of used Plastic Injection Moulding Machinery with over 25,000 plastic related items sold in 2008 alone.

David Heaselgrave continues; "our primary sales methodology utilising online auctions, combined with our expertise and industry knowledge opens the world up for the sale of major plant and machinery. Our market leading position allows us to target a clients surplus assets at the ‘hot’ buying markets, maximising the return for the seller and facilitating the buyer in the acquisition of quality used plant and machinery. This is a form of recycling. Taking a machine from one part of the world where it is idle or surplus and moving to a region where it can be used fully"

Smart Inventory Management unlocks the value in surplus assets

The aviation business is facing one of the most dynamic economic slowdowns in history. The difference between the winners and losers facing this new challenge will be determined by who plans to better manage warehoused aircraft parts stocks using current and up and coming technologies in combination with existing software, hardware and strategic relationships.

The new global financial meltdown is putting extreme pressure on financed inventory portfolios. Credit rating has dropped and the previous 3-5% interest rates that applied to funding inventory stock have climbed to upwards of 26% for some airlines, MRO’s and aircraft parts distributors.

With an average 20%-25% expected reduction in booked sales revenues for the airlines, this is creating an enormous squeeze on aircraft part costs from both ends of the spectrum.

Further adding to the problem is the fact that most airlines have postponed or canceled new aircraft orders and now need to fly their existing older fleet longer. And finally let’s not forget the roller coaster fuel costs that also affect the bottom line. Profitability at this point is not a goal, in this economic climate, reducing losses and better controlling expenses is the key to who will survive and who will not.

One new idea is to consider creating a Smart Inventory Management program. This program takes into consideration all of the related costs of managing inventory that exists today and integrating new sources of market information, new technology along with good some good old common sense.

What are the components of a SIM program? It is a combination of adding current and future technologies and integrating them to better manage aircraft parts inventories. The components are:

1. A smart SCM software – helps manage inventory levels and reports consumption
2. Web Based services - that can provide market intelligence on parts
3. Better inventory tracking- bar code, RFID
4. Partnering and/or outsourcing logistics and using Internet Auctions

1 - Evaluate your current SCM (Supply Chain Management) software. In order to reduce finance carrying costs, an airline for example needs to coordinate spare levels with the existing fleet they fly in combination with the usage and repair rates of that fleet. Airlines need to use their ERP software to review stock levels and replacement statistics and lower or increase stocks based on actual real time usage. Many airlines have a fleet program. Rarely do the airlines reduce part stock levels as they phase out aircraft. If you fly fifteen (15) 737-200’s and you reduce the fleet to eight (8), are the airlines reducing their aircraft parts levels by the same percentage? In most cases the answer is no.

Which begs the question, why not? Reducing these levels of stock to reflect the actual fleet size is Smart Inventory Management. The only reason to keep these parts is if the parts were discontinued or hard to find to stock and finance them. What typically happens is that as the entire model line is reduced to the last couple of aircraft, the parts are sold off in a lot or in some case just given to the last aircraft purchaser, all at a significant lost and write off to the airline. Not so smart, especially today when you factor in the cost of financing, warehousing and managing these parts. Most airlines today have enough losses and are not looking for more.
Each of the SCM software OEM’s offer their own unique set of services. For example; Carolina Davila of TRAX explains “TRAX has been providing customers with Web-services and integration to the outside world for some time now. TRAX customers have connections to spares portals to enable them to buy and sell parts as the need arises. However, TRAX is always open to new developments in the industry that can improve their Software and the facilities available to their clients. Materials can tie up large amounts of capital for customers and any way that this can be safely reduced will be a big benefit, particularly in these tough times.”

Implementing a SIM monitoring program includes looking to see if this capability exists or can be added to your current SCM system. Some SCM systems address the logistics issues of inventory management, "Look for software providing inventory visibility across multiple warehouses and airline maintenance depots around the world, specifically a web platform for on-line asset management collaboration between trading partners", according to Andrew Valley, Vice President - Sales, for Component Control. "

The software SCM players in this area are listed below in alphabetical order:
ADT, Aerosoft Systems, Inc., Componet Control,Climber Air Data, Commsoft,IFR, Infospectrum, MIRO Technologies, MRO, Software/IBM, MXi, Pentagon 2000 Software, Russell Adams (RAL), Ramco, SaSIM, Swiis Avaition Software, Tracware, TRAX

Peter Waugh of Pentagon 2000 also made an interesting observation, “Having a cutting edge SCM solution, such as Pentagon 2000SQL, that takes full advantage of advanced inventory tracking methods and is fully integrated with every aspect of your business is the best way to know where your active and potential profit centers lie. With real-time inventory tracking and detailed warehousing information a quality SCM solution is an essential part of any SIM system. Ideally one would have a system, like Pentagon, that integrates all of the SIM principles of SCM/ERP software, web service integration, Bar Code/RFID, and easy data sharing for logistical services. This would provide you with one reliable and comprehensive view of your entire business.”

2 - Integrate Web based services that provide Market Intelligence into you SIM program - Companies such as PartsBase can provide aftermarket aircraft parts intelligence and MRO intelligence tools.

This service allow airlines, MRO’s and parts distributors the ability to upload their inventory part numbered stocks and repair capabilities and share them with the industry to provide searchers with the ability to find and purchase these parts or repair services . This is important when it comes to parts they do not have in stock for an unscheduled repair (AOG) or plan for scheduled maintenance repairs and replacements of consumables, rotables and airframe parts such as C and D checks.

Web based services can provide the industry with part number based statistics on market demand. Data such as how many times a part was searched and an RFQ sent over the last 90 days. They can even provide annual data over the course of a year which can be compared to an airline, MRO’s or distributor’s sales and inventory activity level. This data can result in SIM reports that produce inventory intelligence that can be compared and used to better manage current and future stock levels.

The result is that airlines, MRO’s and distributors will add more overstocked part numbers for sale. Slow moving or no activity aftermarket parts should be turned in to cash or placed on consignment and sold off in lots or even auctioned This results in a better cash position and reduces financing and all related coasts, selling them for full market value vs. 10 cents on the dollar when the industry is phasing out the same model of aircraft such as the current situation with 727 and MD series aircraft.

PartsBase provides these services as part of their overall membership package. Their inventory intelligence tool compares a member’s inventory to actual search activity and RFQ activity. This information can be compared to the SCM activity and stock levels can be adjusted. It also can tell the aircraft parts owner that if he has 0 activity parts on the SCM system, and good activity on the Web based service he stand a great chance of unloading those parts at full value.
PartsBase offers direct inventory data feeds to some of the SCM systems with pans to help integrate with others to enable SIM programs. These direct feeds insure the most current inventory level data and RFQ activity data on a daily basis. Parts Base’s NEW MRO intelligence tools can also help MRO shops and service provider’s accurate market demand information with detailed Turn Around Time (TAT) data for inspection, repair and overhaul.

3 - Bar Code Vs RFID- a SIM program should have some type of technology inventory control capability. The gap in cost is closing between Bar code and RFID technology. When it comes to aircraft parts the jury is still out. There is no doubt that bar coding is less expensive and more standardized in the industry. However, the RFID community is finding ways to reduce the costs associated with RFID technology. We do see light at the end of the tunnel for RFID, especially as a cost, security & loss control component to a SIM program. Good inventory control and management is means knowing where your parts are at all times and being able to track when they came in to a warehouse facility and when they went out and to whom. RFID over the next few years has the potential to better control and manage inventory.

4 - Logisitic Services and outsourcing inventory management and using Internet Auctions- There are companies that offer turnkey consignment and/or onsite inventory management programs. These companies know how to manage inventory better than in house management. Logistic services can implement SIM programs for Airlines, MRO’s and Distributors. They can react to technology changes quicker without all of the political and internal control issues some larger organizations tend to create simply by their sheer size and slowness of the decision process when it comes to making changes and implementing a SIM program.
Some of the companies that specialize in this market are:
Aircraft Inventory Management Services, ALN, DB Schenker, Kongsberg,
Kuehne + Nagel, Lufthansa Services, Sterling Services, TWI

One you have implemented a SIM program, you will be faced with a need to turn surplus parts into cash. Selling them off on a service like PartsBase is a good idea when trying to get full market value.Market vaule is defined as whatever some is willing to pay. Once you check the market intelligence, you will find non activity parts that just need to be liquidated to make room for higher turnover more profitable parts.

One company’s surplus asset is another company’s treasure. Specialised internet auction websites such as GoIndustry DoveBid offer a very effective sale option called Exchange auctions. The full turnkey solution for Airlines and Manufacturers can also include up-to-date valuation and appraisal services. GoIndustry DoveBid’s Aviation Exchange is one of 11 industry-specific global marketplaces, providing a streamline auction process to sell surplus or unused assets, from uploading and marketing them worldwide to processing the transaction safely. Inventory and Equipment from various sellers is bundled into one auction sale event offering individual lots to be bid on online in real time, thus getting the most money in a competitive bidding process and by a defined closing date. Buyers have an interest in everything related to aviation including: A/C Parts and Engines, GSE, Tooling, Machinery & More. Exchange auctions take place on a monthly basis in various Industries (Aviation, IT, Test & Measurement, and Transportation) to name a few. See more details on the www.Go-Dove.com website.

At the end of the day, it all comes down to looking at how your organization is reacting to the current economic environment, recognizing that any organization needs to be proactive, not reactive to managing their aircraft part stocks and consider implementing a SIM program at a level that does not disrupt the current flow of parts, but questions the current associated costs (purchase price, repair price, finance costs, warehouse and logistic costs) in place and planning to insure your organizations survival and quick return to profitability using these IT technologies and some good old fashioned common sense.
