Purchasing and Logistics

Purchasing and Logistics

Purchasing and logisitics in the Bosch Group

Bosch seeks intensive and long-term relations with suppliers to collaborate creating a Team, in order to make Bosch strong in the markets of the world.

Each year the Bosch group purchases materials, parts and services valued at 24 thousand million euros from third parties and transports some 4 thousand three hundred million tons. We are talking about 291 production centres located around the world, which employ 22,000 professionals dedicated to the administration of the supply chain.

The importance of teamwork

Despite the impressive figures, people are always first with us. Are we talking about two different teams? One the supplier and the other Bosch? That is secondary for us. We share a common base which is our trust, and a common goal which is to strengthen Bosch in the world markets. If Bosch is successful, you as a supplier are successful.

Our Corporative Purchases management (CP) has established goals based on the necessity of incorporating market technologies into the costs that our clients are willing to pay, by means of:

  • Continuing improvement in the costs of our supplies
  • Guaranteeing the supplies of raw materials
  • Worldwide development of the chain of supply in accordance with our BPS tool: Bosch Production System
  • Consolidating the restructuring of Purchases of Indirect Materials and Services through the IBT (International Bundling Team) to achieve the planned savings
  • Introducing standard processes in Purchases and Logistics
  • Boosting our supplies in the LCC markets
  • Improving the “quality of supplies” on a corporate level
  • Broadening the concept of “development of suppliers” to the different divisions of the Group
  • Integrating preferred suppliers through continuous training activities at Bosch

R&D project EMOLDE: mechatronic molds connected by internet

With the aim of introducing a new technology improvement in injection molding processes, the goal of this project is to develop mechatronic systems and therefore use embedded systems in such processes. Thus the project target is to help the molds from being passive elements any longer in order to achieve an efficiency improvement throughout the cycle of production of plastic parts.

This project has been coordinated by FEAMM, ELEDA CUMSA as developer of the mechatronic system, PLASTIA as software developer, CONSTRUCCIONES MECÁNICAS SOLÉ as sensorized-mold manufacturer, SOGEFI FILTRATION and ROBERT BOSCH GASOLINE SYSTEMS as end users, INSTITUTO TECNOLÓGICO DE CASTILLA Y LEÓN as developer of the virtual model and FUNDACIÓN ASCAMM as technical coordinator.

The EMOLDE (TSI-020500-2010-167) Project has been funded by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Commerce within the National Plan for Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation 2008-2011.
