Increase precision in your inventories

Accurate inventory tracking is essential for running a successful business. Unreliable data can cause companies to over- or underestimate the amount of products in stock, leading to unnecessary losses. Fortunately, there are several ways to maintain precision within your inventories.

Utilizing specialized software designed for this purpose can help keep data up-to-date at all times. It enables you to track incoming and outgoing items, ensuring balance between what's available and what's needed. Additionally, these tools allow businesses to monitor their costs by setting alerts when stock runs low or excessive stock accumulates.

Advanced technologies such as 3D scanning also make it possible to attain highly accurate details of physical and digital objects, while contributing towards reliable 3D models that enable precise measurements of products in inventory. These solutions are ideal for businesses with particular requirements related to measuring and sizing.

What is raw materials inventory?

Raw materials are calculated values for all the components that a business uses for the construction and manufacture of the goods it produces. These products are called “pre-production stocks,” either currently on the shelves or waiting to be used. In some cases, companies and organizations list raw materials as current assets, as they contribute to the company's product inventory and to the overall manufacturing product. There are three sub-categories for raw material: direct materials. Direct materials are products that are integrated into final products.

What do we do?

We carry out the cubing of all types of raw material, from grains, vegetables, forage, fuels, aggregates, minerals, etc., via a report either 3D or conventional, and the evidence in a point cloud.

Why raw materials inventory management is vital for growing manufacturers?

Imagine a journey across the globe. You can take two suitcases full of clothes in any climate. You might think you are smarter as you prepare yourself for every event, but this actually weighs you down and costs more money. Compare it to the size of your suitcase. The money saved at the cost of baggage will help you purchase the goods you want, whenever and where you want. If your flight is short, you can get into an ambulance quickly. It's easier to choose one option, but progress is so slow that overall effectiveness is diminished. The second choice is the path to successful. You should put the whole egg in a single pot.

Raw materials may sometimes be declared obsolete, possibly because they are no longer used in company products, or because they have degraded while in storage, and so can no longer be used.

Increase precision in your inventories

The analysis of raw materials determines current asset. When you have a raw material inventory management, you can calculate the excess inventory or if the customer demand can be satisfied.

For calculate raw materials inventory and maintain a safety stock can use a 3D laser scanning. The raw materials inventory value is directly proportional to inventory levels from all the materials.

In case do you no know your currently inventory asset, you need a scanning of beginning raw materials inventory to determine when the ending inventory is necessary incoming to supply sufficient stock material to the production lines.

How to have a good level of materials in stock?

For maintain supply chain, it's necessary a good raw inventory to produce the final product and continue the manufacturing processes. If you can use an inventory management software, it's a good option to process inventory.

You can rely on a balance sheet to keep track, however, using a 3D laser scan will give you real, accurate data on what you currently have in stock in case what you have of raw materials is not enough to maintain customer satisfaction, it will be necessary to request more raw materials to continue with the production process.

Volume Variability

Among all the variables that affect the specific weight of the raw material and its report in tons are the scales, humidity, volume, and level of compaction. Volume is the most important variable that has impacted inventory measurements for many years. Still, due to the evolution of technology, the uncertainty this can produce has been almost eliminated. 3D laser scanning capture thousands or millions of measurements, producing a point cloud that faithfully represents the complex shapes of the material.

How do I request an
Inventory Service?

Many of the clients that we have in the beginning do not know how to request an inventory service, that is why we have given ourselves the task of making a guide that helps to request a 3D laser scan correctly.

The client must define the following scopes:

Type of Container
Georeferenced or Not
Periodicity

Volume Radiographs in Silos
