Supply Chain Management
Pure Wafer systems track the inventory at the various customer locations and sends warnings when the on hand quantity is low. A minimum and maximum quantity is applied to each inventory part separately for each of a customer's locations so that the proper material is restocked and shortages are avoided in the location that it is needed.
When the inventory drops below the minimum for a given part, restock notifications are sent to material handling personnel prompting a delivery request of the quantity necessary to get the on hand quantity back to the maximum. Over time the minimum and maximum values are tempered with usage statistics and production lead times to arrive at just the right values for optimal stocking.
