Plastics Silo Level Measurement Solution:

Challenges Keeping Track of Raw Material Inventory at Four Locations Across the Country

SITUATION:
Nursery Supplies home office is located in central Pennsylvania. They manufacture plastic garden products at four facilities, Oregon, California, Pennsylvania and Florida. The central buying function, located in Pennsylvania, had to continuously request reports and call the other four facilities for updates on their raw material inventory levels. The administrative cost and the time required was more than a minor irritant.

SOLUTION:
Many plastic processors with multiple manufacturing locations have this problem. The solution for Nursery Supplies was the implementation of a RMI (Remote Managed Inventory) system. Monitor Technologies specializes in RMI and VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) systems using the SiloPatrol® inventory monitoring system with SiloTrack™ inventory management software. SiloTrack software enables local control and interface of the sensors and provides for communication to remote locations with its Client software.
Nursery Supplies has a total of over thirty (30) SiloPatrol® sensors in use at four (4) facilities. Each facility uses the SiloTrack™ Server software and the Client software is also installed at the corporate location for central purchasing use. The Client software interfaces with the Server software at each facility via dial-up, LAN or WAN connections. Nursery Supplies has been able to reap the benefits by being able to automatically view inventory levels at all facilities and place orders accordingly. Nursery Supplies indicates that "Monitor's SiloPatrol/SiloTrack RMI solution is an economical, accurate and trouble-free measuring system”.
