inventory management system helps prevent shipping errors and increase work efficiency
after spending one year looking at suppliers and then another six months observing and examining case studies, kobayu decided on the it-matex iii inventory management system from digi. it took an additional year to tailor the system to kobayu’s needs.
a wireless lan connects the it-matex iii system to some 19 mobile terminals, 13 counting scales, and 6 label printers at the company, and picking is done using a dedicated cart. small-size bags are used for filling small lot orders. however, for larger lots, a counting scale on the picking cart is used together with a count error prevention program, to make sure there is no mistake in the part count. additionally, when the order form barcode is scanned, the order data is automatically reflected in the sales data, which helps reduce input errors for business tasks that are outside the inventory management area.
by introducing it-matex iii, kabayu is able to monitor order fulfillment and inventory status on a constant basis and has succeeded in drastically reducing shipping errors. they have also been able to significantly shorten overall work time and increase work efficiency.
