IoT – Automated Replenishment
Defined as a physical network of devices embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators and network connectivity enabling them to connect and exchange information, the Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest step forward in the recent evolution of industrial supply systems. What does this mean for industrial supply?
Using weight-based sensors and state of the art cloud-based software, bins come alive and tell us when they are hungry, too full, or if something’s not quite right. With the click of a button, we can read inventory levels down to the piece count in a single bin. Replenishment reports are sent automatically at set intervals, eliminating the need for personnel to rely on visual replenishment cues. (Oh, you used something up quicker than anticipated? No problem, high-priority emergency replenishment reports are sent automatically!)
Our automated replenishment solutions are cloud based, so the information is available from anywhere including your smartphone, tablet or computer. Best of all, they run completely independent of ERP systems, adding an extra layer of security!
Whether your racks are in a static location, or your production environment is dynamic and constantly being rearranged, all we need is an internet connection and a power source and we can have multiple locations up and running in your facility in virtually no-time.
