Inventory management in PEP Nesting incorporates tracking of plates and remnants.
The highlighted line in the screen shot displays the nest. Notice the plate has a status of "Allocated". Once the nest is cut, the remnant with it's stair step side, will be put back into inventory. The PEP Technology Inventory will track remnants and plates.
Plates can be added into Inventory manually or via an ERP interface. The ERP interface could be manually triggered or automatic. Inventory is consumed when a nest is cut. Any remnants would be added back into inventory but the plate is removed.
