Benefits of optimizing warehouse & inventory operations have a direct and positive impact on profit. Labor costs, space cost, obsolescence cost and cost of urgent purchases are some of the costs associated with un-optimized inventory processes. The most painful of the cost is of not having a critical component when required. It has the possibility of stopping many important operations.
In Asset-intensive industries like Ports & Terminals, EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation) and Power, components are specialized, high-value and have long replenishment time.
In today’s competitive environment, there is zero tolerance to inaccuracy and there is huge pressure on reducing costs. Thankfully technology like mobility, RFID’s and Bar-coding are enabling this goal.
IFS is more than ready for it with its Warehousing Data Collection (WADACO) functionality.
