As companies assess and modify their cycle counting
practices, they're finding more ways to improve inventory accuracy, fill rate, productivity and profitability.
Using real-time cycle counting
(and cycle count planning) assures inventory accuracy of up to 98 per cent or better.
com)-- Z5 Health today announced the initial release of Z5 Cycle, the latest product designed specifically for cycle counting
in periodic and perpetual areas.
The mean error and standard deviation of the error between the frequency-based model and the rainflow cycle counting
method was computed for fatigue slope exponent m ranging from 3 to 12.
The robot will automate the inventory cycle counting
process to eliminate human-error, decrease operational expenditure and shift what used to be an employee task to value-added activities where they can better serve shoppers.
Perform Rainflow Counting on %SMYS data: ASTM El049--Standard Practices for Cycle Counting
in Fatigue Analysis (E 1049--85: reapproved 2005) details methodologies for performing cycle counting
Functionalities include: cycle counting
and inventory adjustment controls to maintain inventory accuracy; single inventory pool per product, accessible by all channels; temperature-sensitive controls to maintain freshness in grocery stores; image display to locate products; and configurable, value-added services management for labeling, kitting and assembly to support efficient work queue control and monitoring.
Besides cycle counting
, uptime and cycle-time sensing, SmartMold also senses over-pressurization, overheating, over-clamping, and other mold abuse, which now can be easily recorded without need for parting-line sensors, pressure transducers, wiring, or thermocouples.
is the main technique used to curb inventory record inaccuracy (IRI), but it offers only a static perspective.
Features include automatic setup verification, component cycle counting
, component level trace-ability, downloading and saving machine performance information, real-time scrap data collection, and support for reel splicing.
The solution includes processes for item receiving and put-away, inventory optimization and replenishment, cycle counting
, kitting, stock allocation, picking, and dispatch.
