Data Acquisition

In order to provide timely replenishment events for the supplier, it is essential to acquire stock level and consumption information from remote consumer sites reliably and accurately. 

ADOPT-FIT uses a variety of methods and tools in order to do this. For the management of bulk stocks such as liquids, powders, granules contained within tanks or silos, ADOPT-FIT has designed a range of data acquisition products called "Outstations" which connect directly to tank and silo monitoring systems in order to read the stock levels.

Outstations are robust, industrial quality, electronic systems that can acquire information from site infrastructure such as sensors, DCS systems and MRP systems. The data gathered is the transmitted to ADOPT-FIT's servers where further processing is performed prior to the secure storage and archiving of data.

Data is presented to ADOPT-FIT's customers in a number of Web Pages and is also encapsulated within XML messages which are transferred regularly to our customers' ERP systems.

ADOPT-FIT is also able to gather data from MRP systems and then integrate this data into its back office systems.

To fully complement ADOPT-FIT's data acquisition skills, a full range of e-Commerce interface options are provided. From simple trend analysis and web based display methods, through to fully automated XML and custom data transfer protocols,

ADOPT-FIT has a range of solutions and options to be able to automate the supply chain.
