SYSTEMS



 

OptiBeam Automated Inventory Replenishment

 

OptiBeam

 

Uses the latest in scanning and barcode technology for easy inventory replenishment.  Our 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 re-order/unit pack sizes.


OptiRack

 

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.

OptiZone Automatic Inventory Replenishment

OptiZone

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.

OptiDrop

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.

OptiDrop Automated Inventory Replenishment

OptiScale


Uses the latest weighing technology to measure real-time 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 re-order unit pack sizes.  Stock levels can be accessed 24/7/365.  OptiScale can be configures in a bin, shelf or container.

FAQs


What parts can Optimas manage for me?

We’ll take over the management of your parts - whether the parts are sourced through Optimas, customer-directed or customer-owned.


Who orders and replenishes parts? 

You can select a full-service or self-managed program. In 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 the inventory. In our self-managed program, Optimas ships parts directly to your dock, and your staff fills the bins.


How are parts deployed?

Parts can be deployed to multiple areas within your plant to ensure maximum efficiency:

SUPERMARKET - Stock is delivered to a single locations

AREA RACKS - Stock is delivered to designated area(s) close to the point of use

DIRECT TO THE LINE - Stock is delivered to the point of use


What customer support will be provided? 

Each VMI Program has an Optimas customer service representative who monitors the flow of your transactions and parts to ensure there is zero disruption to your line. For additional support, you can also call our JIT 24-hour hotline.
