Inventory Tracking Software Uses
Parts and inventory tracking software allows you to track and manage your materials in real time and can be integrated with your existing ERP or WMS software or installed as a standalone solution. Inventory management and tracking software will allow you to:
- Implement batch picking
- Utilize pick-to-light technology to ensure accurate picking processes
- Increase pick rates and reduce errors
- Track inventory levels
- Automatically make inventory orders
- Reduce or eliminate costs associated with lost, misplaced, or mispicked items
- Limit access to specific storage trays to authorized personnel
ASRS Automated Storage Distribution Through Multiple Floors
Vertical lift modules are also unique in that they can be configured for multi-floor use. This way, employees won’t even have to travel up and down stairs or elevators to get the parts they need—instead, parts and other materials can be brought directly to them with just the push of a button. Access ports can also be positioned on opposite sides of the VLM to provide even more access areas to further streamline inventory management and productivity.
The VLMs are available in multiple sizes with heights up to 97′ parts trays up to 13′ wide. Parts trays can hold up to 2,000 lbs per tray. These automated storage distribution solutions are becoming an increasingly integral part of manufacturing, assembly, packaging, and cleanroom productions.
