Manual System vs. Zenventory System
Warehouse Inventory shows 2000 pieces in C-7 on 5 pallets for production use today!
Production begins all systems go…. each pallet brought to line as required for production.
Material only has 4 pallets in designated C-7 Location.
Notifies Supervisor and the search is on! …Where is the other pallet?? Has it been misplaced??
Line supervisor notifies Material we need the additional pallet of material before the hour is up!
Material control has ordered more material but not due in till end of day….. Blood pressure is up on everyone… phone calls become more frequent and heated… more people searching for material!
Material found in E-9 because there was room for the pallet!!!!!! AHHHH!! How can we control this from happening?? Why was material misplaced in the warehouse? Frustration is maxed out and everyone starts the blame game!!
Zenventory Inventory Management System:
Same situation. But when material came in it was noted on the hand-held and entered into the system that the 5th pallet had been delivered to overrun area in E-9.
Everyone knows it and no one panics nor looses material for production to go along smoothly …well as far as having all the material that is needed!!
This is the “result” when you have a complete Zenventory Inventory Management System” in place and personnel are trained on the equipment as part of the package.
What’s keeping you from having the tools necessary to enhance your business and smooth out the entire inventory system that goes from inception of the PO being issued right on through to usage of the inventory that you have paid for and do not need expedited shipments for lost or misplaced product.
