Replace the Manual Process of Counting and Re-ordering with Automation2 bin medical supply re-ordering system

Manual processes are time-consuming and error-prone. Counting and re-ordering medical supplies takes nurses away from where they are really needed – with their patients. Inventory management software is designed to replace these manual processes. The automated medical supply re-ordering system uses RFID tags and a Kanban storage system to easily and efficiently manage the re-ordering process.

Using the Automated Medical Supply Re-Ordering System

The automated medical supply re-ordering system standardizes and speeds up the restocking process in just 6 easy steps.

  1. Kanban Storage System:  A “two-bin” Kanban system is made up of a primary bin and a secondary bin for each SKU. Bins can be positioned left-to-right, front-to-back, or up-to-down.
  2. RFID Stock Card Setup: Every set of two-bins is set with a digital stock card that has an embedded RFID tag encoded with the supply details (i.e. type, quantity, location).
  3. Consumption: Medical supplies are pulled from the primary bin first.
  4. Re-order: When the primary bin is empty, slide the label to the red "out of stock" side. This indicates that more supplies need to be ordered.
  5. Once supplies are ordered, the older inventory is rotated to the front while the rear compartment is filled with new inventory.
