Automatic inventory management - How does the restock process work?

The SmartBin Flex is integrated into the assembly workstation layout as a flexible component, with weight sensors continuously checking the stock on hand. The control data is permanently sent to Bossard via radio link. If logistical bottlenecks occur and the agreed minimum stock level is reached, a refill order is automatically triggered and transmitted to the supplier. The supplier then delivers the ordered items to the customer without any stress. This process is triggered again each time materials or products are used up, so there is no longer any need to worry about possible bottlenecks.

The benefits of using it summarized:

  • Shortened order and delivery times
  • Reduced inventory, less space required
  • Lean process without manual intervention
  • Maintenance-free
  • Fast proactive response to peak demand possible
  • Reduced operating costs
  • Total reliability

SmartLabel - Intelligent labels for managing product information

Illustration of the ordering process with the SmartLabel

If the previously defined minimum stock level has been reached, a refill order is placed by simply pressing the order button. The data is automatically transmitted to the supplier and processed. The order status and delivery date are continuously visible on the SmartLabel. Depending on the agreement, the products are delivered to the incoming goods department or directly to the assembly workstation.
