Manufacturing Inventory Health Unique Differentiator in Effective Supply Chain Management Reports Ultriva


Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2014 -- The key to any successful manufacturing company is to understand the health of inventory whether finished goods, work-in-process, or raw materials. Narayan Laksham, Ultriva’s founder and CEO discussed in the company blog, compared the inventory health of a manufacturing company to a doctor’s patient.

According to Laksham, “Just as a physician has a variety of diagnostic tools to assess the patient’s health, best-in-class demand driven supply chain technology can run the ‘bloodwork’ (inventory) of manufactures to determine multiple factors. Ultriva’s early warning system built into the software ensures inventory health because it is driven by business rules defined by each business. It can also be tailored to product groups, customer or supplier segmentation, by production cells, by supermarkets, or warehouses.”

Just as a physician weights a patient, takes the blood pressure and pulse, Ultriva is equipped with sophisticated tools that not only diagnose the current state of inventory health, but predict what challenges are likely to follow without corrective action. Sadly, just as get-thin-quick schemes are advertised on late night television, there are technology imposters who fail to recognize, address, and solve the unique standards set by each company. Patients are advised to check out a physician’s credentials; the same investigatory rigor should be applied in finding appropriate solutions for inventory health.
