Digitising Silo Inventory

The Ronin ART Inventory Management System truly brings control over your inventory to your fingertips. Sixteen years later and Ronin System Solutions still enhances the ART System by engineering better laser hardware and smarter software.

The ART System Software provides the user with valuable insight into what is happening on-site, in the silo, and on the book. By balancing and synchronising these three important factors the ART System gives the Silo owner the capability to balance book stock positions to what is physically happening in the silo.

Stock management begins by having a holistic daily overview of what is happening on site. Bin location and number, as well as grain type stored, its grade, density, and other grading criteria, are very important. This information together with an infrastructure of laser scanning devices that measures the occupied volume on an ongoing basis creates the backbone of the ART System.

ART Site Overview Dashboard

The ART Dashboard Software offers another dimension to silo bin data by selecting any of the bins on the Dashboard. All historically published scans data is available on this page as well as the mass, volume, and density at the time of measurement. Bin allocations for product type, density, and grade are done on this page. The ART Single Bin View page also gives the operator the capability to look at the last ten scans published.

This page also hosts the current status of the hardware and software for the bin. The status icons and message tab gives the current status in terms of reporting schedule, infrastructure soundness, out of date scans, dusty, or overfill statuses inside the bin. All of this data offers validity to the data reported and will indicate to the operator where his system or data could be compromised.
