Accurate, real-time inventory is a must. The Log Inventory and Management System (LIMS) tracks your timber, logs, wood and fiber at all your company locations whether in yards or at mills or in transit. The Inventory Manager is fully integrated with all other parts of LIMS, so that as soon as a delivery is made, your inventory is right up to date.
Record identification and other information for each load
LIMS tracks business information for each and every load. From bush to the mill, all information associated with a load (e.g. ticket number, truck identification, date in and out, contractor, and so on) is recorded and available for display and reporting.
Establish unlimited numbers of materials and categories
LIMS users can establish an unlimited number of material types at any camp location. If harvest operations or lines of business change in the future, LIMS can create new product types to go along with the new business practices.
Value bush, yard and mill inventory
Inventory can be valued by a number of common industry methods. Using this feature, you can accurately value your inventory based on your knowledge and experience of current market trends. For example, the value for bush inventory can be set company-wide by approval area, block, setup number, species, or even product type.
Daily tracking of inventory is achieved through remote links to camps, giving managers an up-to-the-minute value of timber stored in the bush as well as at yards and mills.
Inventory Reports (daily, weekly, monthly, or as defined by the user)
Inventory Manager can produce inventory reports using the information recorded for inventory purposes. These reports can be for specific locations, species, and time periods, including detailed transaction history sorted by yard, deck, and mill locations.
Manage and update yard inventories
Inventory Manager also updates yard inventories when there are transfers between yards, piles, or for mill usage. It also allows manual yard inventory update by adding, changing, and deleting loads/logs from yards, and keeps a detailed transaction history regarding the inventory status, including deliveries, movements and adjustments.
