Inventory Management VMI Nuts Fastener Bin Scanner

OptiTech Inventory Management

From procurement to replenishment.

To manage your inventory, we’ve invested in advanced technology that uses predictive analytics and machine learning to improve the forecast accuracy of your fasteners and components – even in times of market volatility.

How It Works

How OptiTech Inventory Management Works

The Process

1. When your reorder point is reached, a notification is sent to Optimas from an OptiTech device.

2. Optimas’ Just-In-Time (JIT) System receives your notification and automatically creates a replenishment order for your fasteners and/or components.

3. Optimas labels and packages your order following your purchasing requirements, consolidates and ships your  order based on a pre-defined schedule.

4. Optimas despatches your fasteners and/or components  using our trucks or couriers.

5. Optimas or your employees  move the parts from your goods in area to your designated area.

Our innovative Inventory Management systems use the latest technology to automate inventory replenishment, saving you time and money.

OptiTech Inventory Management JIT Systems
Optimas Just In Time
JIT System
Is a secure, cloud-based just-in-time platform that receives and processes orders from any OptiTech VMI Solution. Access customised, real-time reports for greater transparency into your fastener inventory and consumption data.

Uses the latest weighing technology to measure real-time fastener and component inventory status down to the part quantity level in a bin. Embedded sensors monitor the weight capacity and then automatically trigger orders based on pre-defined min/max levels and reorder/unit pack sizes. Stock levels can be accessed 24/7/365. OptiScale can be configured in a bin, shelf or container.

Uses advanced radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to automate inventory replenishment. When empty bins are placed on an RFID mat on the rack shelf, it detects the RFID chip embedded in the bin label and then wirelessly triggers an order. OptiRack can be set up in any designated area— a supermarket, area rack or at the point of use.

Uses advanced RFID technology to automate inventory replenishment. An RFID antenna points to a designated area—a pallet, cage, gaylord container or bulk area. When an empty bin is placed in that area, the antenna detects the RFID chip embedded in the bin label and then wirelessly triggers an order.

Uses advanced RFID technology to automate inventory replenishment. Each bin has a unique card with an RFID embedded chip. When the bin is empty or low, simply remove the card and place it inside the OptiDrop box to wirelessly trigger an order. OptiDrop can be placed at any location inside the plant.

Uses the latest in scanning and barcode technology for easy inventory replenishment. Our cellular-enabled scanners allow Optimas or the customer to check inventory levels and send orders instantly. The scanner includes auditing software so you can search parts, validate bin location and set optimal reorder/unit pack sizes.

What parts can we manage?

We’ll take over the management of your parts—whether that is fasteners and components that are sourced through Optimas, customer-directed or customer-owned.

Who orders and replenishes parts?

You can select a full-service or self-managed program. With our full-service program, Optimas delivers and fills the bins at a scheduled time, or has an onsite Optimas team member or in-plant store replenish your inventory.
