The Seeburger Inventory Monitor is described as a B2B application designed to equip manufacturers and their suppliers with real-time visibility into parts inventory levels to enable demand-based replenishment. Enhancements are said to include; tracking of stock levels at supplier and 3PL logistic warehouses, support for dynamic minimum/maximum levels, supplier scorecarding, and optional integration with RFID middleware.
According to Seeburger, the Inventory Monitor extends the automated trading partner communications capabilities of the Seeburger B2B Gateway or can be added to other B2B platforms to support demand planning.
It provides graphical, color- coded monitoring of parts inventory and automatically triggers parts shipments based on user-defined minimum/maximum stock levels. These and other features are said to ensure parts availability for automotive, appliance and other manufacturers with just-in-time production schedules, whilst also reducing inventory carrying costs.
With this application, manufacturers can fine- tune parts delivery to meet their production needs without carrying excess stock, while suppliers can improve their ability to forecast and meet customers’ inventory requirements, said Seeburger president, Scott Lewin.
