Inventory Management

Why is data collection important?

Adding a weight sensor to your vessel is only the start of the system, collecting and analyzing the data that is provided by the sensor, through a controller, is what really begins to provide valuable information for dry bulk inventory management.

Inventory management is critical; maximizing the reliability and consistency of inventory measurement through the manufacturing process is key to:

  • Optimizing supply chain planning
  • Accurately measuring process yields and direct materials costs
  • Optimizing working capital
  • Improving accuracy of financial reporting
  • Confirming quantities of material received
  • Identifying inventory losses
