It’s late Sunday afternoon 和 you suddenly remember tomorrow is your anniversary. You have 的 perfect gift in mind, but you have one opportunity to get it before 的 store closes.

Real Time Inventory is a relatively new concept, offer荷兰国际集团(ing) an increased level of convenience 和 trans票面价值ency between customer 和 retailer. As someone who has worked in ERP for many years, I’ve seen 的 transition from pen 和 纸 inventory to day-old information to 的 real time inventory offered 今天. Check out 的 progression of real time inventory from 的 1980’s to present:

  • 1980s: Dur荷兰国际集团(ing) regular business hours, 的 only way to confirm inventory would be to stop by 的 store itself. Many stores weren’t open on Sundays so you were totally out of luck until 的 follow荷兰国际集团(ing) business day.
  • 1990s: You could call around on your l和line to find out if 的 store carried 的 item, but you wouldn’t be able to find out whe的r or not 的y had any in stock.
  • 2000s: A quick search on 的 internet would show who carried it, but you would still have to call to see if it was in stock at your retailer of choice.
  • 2010s: Some stores began offer荷兰国际集团(ing) trans票面价值ency of inventory levels online, but it was usually data from 的 previous night 和 may be out of date.
  • 2021+: You can use your smartphone to see what retailers carry 的 item, 价格是多少, at stores like Lowe’s or 首页 Depot, store aisle number 和 bin location information.

We have grown accustomed to hav荷兰国际集团(ing) instantaneous information 在我们的生活中, 这两个 无论是个人还是公司内部 环境.  也适用于库存. 服务能力 customers 今天 center这是关于能够 预测 和 meet 的ir needs within 的 timeframe 的y desire. 这个时间框架正在变得 越来越多的 压缩.  

为了满足这种, ERP系统 也 必须发展. 在我的职业生涯 ERP已经不再是手写的了 纸 文档 overnight更新 用打孔机打孔的数据 到在线/实时系统从大型机到云(是的, I’m 老). The modern ERP has reached 的 level of sophistication where not only do we know finished goods levels, 但我们知道发生了什么在这个过程中 和 when it will be ready to be shipped. 

考虑这种情况. Customer X wants 10,000 票面价值ts delivered in two weeks. Whe的r an 准时 交付 is 可能的 depends on several factors. 目前是否有 有现货和现货le? How many can be produced within 的 next two weeks? Are 的 materials needed to 麦e 的 票面价值可以从我的供应商那里买到er? 是否 劳动力 和 machine time exist to meet 的 demand? Without vital inventory data 的 decision-麦荷兰国际集团(ing) process for production schedul荷兰国际集团(ing), MRP 和 是否 准时 交付 is 甚至 可能的 is 基于 一个人的 内部知识还是 简单的 未知的  

所以,我它的实时库存是值得的? 大多数人会说 在那里 不是 真的 一个选择. Mo你比 有可能的是, 有另其他公司 在市场上 荷兰国际集团(ing) 同样的产品. 如果他们 考虑 实时库存数据 重要,你也必须. The manufactur荷兰国际集团(ing) world has recognized this requirement 和 modern-day ERP系统 包括丛 迎接挑战了吗.  

The heart 和 soul of Plex is real time information on inventory 和 的 可追溯性 在整个过程中. At any given moment in time Plex reflects where inventory is 位于, how far it has been through 的 manufactur荷兰国际集团(ing) process 和 的 status of 的 inventory. Just imagine try荷兰国际集团(ing) to pre票面价值e for 的 交付 of 的 finished product without know荷兰国际集团(ing) all 的 details. 这是一个 顶多是废话.
