Inventory Management module consists of different views into the raw material, intermediate and finished product inventory organized by storage tanks. The module provides planners with a view into planned and actual inventory in each storage tank. The data can be fed from SCADA automation systems when tanks are equipped with level sensors or taken from manually entered inventory.
We have successfully integrated with SCADA systems at some locations. Reading tank levels from SCADA serves as a sanity check for planned inventory as planner reconcile actual production.
The module allows planners to record manual adjustments to planned and actual levels when intervention is required.
This enables planners to have a preview of upcoming product inventory.
New features of the module available to new licensees in 2021.
