There are many ways to waist your money. As an employee in the manufacturing industry you can certainly find enough examples in your wealth of experience. But can you imagine the possibility to waste millions at once, only by a little mistake in the conversion of units? Well, it is not impossible. In 1999, the National american space agency NASA produced the evidence by losing a whole Mars Climate Orbiter. The reason? One team used metric units, the other not. But what is the connection to the inventory management in your company?
Already lost some money today?
When did you last get annoyed about the ineffective inventory management in your company? That’s probably a long time ago, because as a regular reader of this blog you must already took advantage of our advice and organized your inventory management with our software. You did not? Then the time has come. Because the MySolutions Group thought about a further optimization of the software-based inventory management. You will find the result of that in the new functions of the MyXPert Production Manager.
From ounce to kilogram and back
Maybe you think now, that’s nice, but what is the benefit of such a clever system, of my distributer deliver in pallet and I have to convert the content of this delivery by myself into a volume? We thought so too and expanded our module for warehouse management accordingly.
Booking, conversion, arrange and inform – The MyXPert ProductionManager now can even do more
Not just book automatically, but also do unit conversions. Manage your inventory for example in kilogram and remove material in ounces. In addition to this typical conversion it is also possible to add your own package units. For raw material it is even possible to calculate the volume of your storage, based on the profile of the material. Based on this information, the ProductionManager can calculate the stock value and a lot more. There is no more conversion needed, the MyXPert ProductionManager organizes your storage full automated and with dimensional accuracy.
Smarter than Columbus and the NASA
Conversion problems have been a fruitful source for errors and problems. Already the great discoverer Christopher Columbus made his experiences with it. He miscalculated the circumference of the earth because he used Roman miles instead of nautical miles. He landed on the 12. of October 1492 on the Bahamas, instead of Asia. Be smarter then Columbus and do better than the NASA – at least if it concerns the conversion of units. Learn more about the possibilities of digital warehouse management with the MySolutions Group. You know, there is a connection between organization and success.
