Warehouse management is a very important task. In addition to managing the contents and assets of the warehouse, the warehouse manager typically has to manage the warehouse staff, plan repairs and preventive maintenance, or other work required. For a long time, these tasks were done manually, but now the aim is to use smart information technology. Industrial companies are installing Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS / EAMs) to manage the above tasks more efficiently. Such automated warehouse management system will ensure that all processes in the warehouse run smoothly and efficiently. Technology helps to solve a variety of challenges and challenges faced by managers pursuing warehouse management improvement.
Warehouses can achieve greater efficiency if information is collected and compiled about warehouse activities from a single central warehouse. Having an asset management system for inventory items, spare parts, and another needed inventory can be viewed from anywhere with an internet connection. Managers and technical staff can monitor the goods in the warehouse, find out the quantity of the goods, see their movements, and make right decisions without physical presence. In addition, you can bring various work orders, reports, and other relevant information to your mobile device.
Access to the warehouse management platform may also be given to the supplier, with appropriate access to the company’s procurement department and warehouse manager. This can make it easier to keep track of the delivered goods, the various equipment, as well as its transportation costs, equipment purchase orders and approvals, and warehouse levels. Inquiries for purchase of materials and spare parts can be created automatically, as soon as the inventory level reaches the acceptable minimum or is completely consumed. Used or installed materials are automatically written off, and any unused residue is not lost or disappears. As time goes on, compiling and analyzing data, companies use short-term and long-term stock plans to build on new insights.
The ability to manage inventory using a computerized asset management system improves response time, increases work order fulfillment rates, and significantly reduces equipment downtime.
