SKU Management Got You Down?

As any beverage manufacturer will tell you, time spent tracking inventory is productivity wasted, and shortfalls in productivity can mean potential lost profits. Let’s say your beverage company produces several different types of soda. For each brand of soda, the company has a different stock keeping unit (SKU). These different SKUs add up quickly, and keeping track of SKUs in a database as they change can be a task that requires an exorbitant amount of time to maintain.

Further, individual SKUs will change depending on even the slightest product variation. For example, your company might come up with a new soda brand and immediately push it to market. Then, a sugar-free version may be created, followed by a tropical flavor, and then a tropical, sugar-free flavor. This process could go on and on until you have 50 variations of the same soda, each with different sizes that you need to track in real time.

Simplify SKU Management with a Relational Quality Control Database 

Part of the reason why tracking SKUs in a database is such a difficult task is that most databases are structured in a way that each row requires individual edits. However, through the power of a relational database – a system that organizes information in a chart or table in accordance with its relational model – manufacturers can spare themselves the dreaded task of having to manually edit old reports. Databases are updated accordingly instead of one by one. This makes enterprise quality management a time- and cost-saving task instead of a wasteful chore that requires a prolonged effort.
