VEGA Inventory System

VEGA offers a system for optimal inventory management: VEGA Inventory System.

Data acquisition, clear visualization and efficient logistics are the core elements of successful, automated inventory control.
The interaction between measurement technology and software plays an important role.

1. Acquisition of measured values

Reliable and accurate measured values are  crucial for optimized inventory monitoring. VEGA sensors and controllers for level and pressure measurement ensure the reliable acquisition of the inventory data.

2. Visualization of measurement data

Bar charts and tank graphics provide the user with a clear and constant overview of current stock levels.

3. Delivery planning

Functions   such as web map with tank locations and statuses, a calendar for planning delivery schedules and quantities, as well as a predictive consumption forecast enable optimized demand and logistics planning.

VEGA Inventory System can be used in the following application scenarios:


1. Inventory monitoring within a company

In this model, VEGA Inventory System is used by a company to monitor and manage its own stocks at one or more locations. The software also enables optimal coordination of raw material supplies between the parent plant and its external manufacturing sites.

Advantages
  • Quick access to current and historical consumption data
  • Economical production and supply planning
  • Increased operational efficiency
  • Cost savings through optimized logistics

2. Supervision of stock levels by the supplier

In this model, the customer transfers the responsibility for monitoring and replenishing his stocks completely to the supplier. Via the VEGA Inventory System, he allows his supplier access to the   real-time inventory data from his tanks and silos.


Advantages for the supplier
  • Quick access to current and historical customer consumption data
  • Cost-effective production and inventory planning in own company
  • Higher client retention levels
  • Cost savings through optimized logistics
  • Improved relationships and long-term customer loyalty

Advantages for the customer
  • Security of supply: No more "out of stock" situations and costly rush orders
  • Avoidance of production stoppages
  • Cost savings through reduced administrative work
  • Higher efficiency and confidence in stock levels
  • Concentration on core business

Two different types of views are available to the user for a clear overview of all stock levels and their statuses.

Graphical view

A range of filter functions allow the user to make a quick overview of requirements by location, product type, level status, alarm levels or other factors.

To allow the user to see at a glance where stocks are still in the green zone, where a delivery will be soon due (yellow) and where replenishment is urgently needed (red), the principle of traffic light colours is integrated through all functions of the program.

With VEGA Inventory System and the dispatcher tools it contains, logistics planning becomes efficient and easy.

  • Delivery planning: Which driver will take how much of which product, where, when and with which vehicle?
  • History diagram and consumption forecast: Offers an overview of past inventory data to assist with calculation of future usage patterns.
  • Dynamic web map: current overview of tank locations and their statuses

Level measurement in a road salt storage silo

In winter, when ice and snow become a problem in many areas, road maintenance teams need to make sure roads, public squares and pathways are safe. The salt needed for this is stored in silos and from there, it is filled into road treatment and snow-clearing vehicles. Reliable level measurement is required here to ensure that enough road salt is always in stock, in the right locations and ready for use. The level data from the silos are transmitted to a central control centre.
