INVENT at “CeBit 2014” in Hanover, Germany.
The RFID based system attracted a lot of interest from many potential customers and partners from around the globe – Germany, Brazil, Italy, Turkey, UAE, Sweden, Malaysia, Romania, Greece, Russia and others, and as a whole there were conducted around 40 meetings to discuss possible partnerships and adoption of the inventory system INVENT.
Location Names & Location LabelsIf an item can be stored somewhere, that ‘somewhere’ must have a name, and it should be labeled with that name. If it doesn’t, time will be wasted looking for things, people will stock things in the wrong place, locations will get referred to by more than one name, and your inventory will be in constant drift towards disorganization.
Remember, any open space can potentially store stuff, so label all of your storage locations, not just the ones that currently have stock.
- An open aisle? - Name it, label it.
- An empty corner? - Name it, label it.
- The tiny water heater closet? - Name it, label it.
And don't pick just any name.
You must have some logic to your location naming scheme. If you don't, you're setting yourself up for frustration down the road in ways that are difficult to anticipate. We’ll give you some advice on a naming scheme later, but no matter what you decide to call your locations, make sure they’re all labeled, and all the names are unique.
Labels that are easy to read help everyone work faster.
Labels that don't clearly state which location they're referring to (i.e. labels, with no arrows, on shelves that have shelves above and below) will cause the same delays and errors as poorly printed labels.
