Factory finance department last to find out?
In a world where I embrace the fact that information can travel thousands of miles and back in milliseconds, I'm also reminded daily that factory finance & accounting departments still wait until the end of a project to begin understanding their material usage.
Inevitably in conversations with interested users, we'll be asked "can Moducore back-flush my inventory?". The answer is yes. But it begs another question, what is preventing you from consuming materials in real time today? Generally, I'd say it is often a combination of the following:
- Incomplete Bills of Materials
- Lack of technology
- Disjointed or offline systems & processes
- Outdated data from external sources
Back-flushing used material quantities at the end of a job does nothing for you — consume materials & understand inventory levels in real-time.
Empower shop floor and warehouse workers to utilize technology and central business systems. The byproduct of allowing iPads and QR codes onto the shop floor and into the warehouses far exceeds the disadvantages of buying a few tablets for the shop floor.
Strictly relying on knowledge workers to accurately and timely capture material movements both ins & outs is a one-way ticket to stock-outs and overbuying. Both scenarios are possible when you can't confidently answer the 'where are we at' question.
