KWD Meters used in rural water supply require careful inventory control. Therefore, it is vital to monitor the devices being used, old devices removed from operation, and new devices being installed. This post will review some highlights of the KWD Meter Inventory Control process.
- How do inspectors conduct KWD Meter Inventory Control audits?
- Why are KWD Meter Inventory Control checklists so crucial for water supply companies?
- How does Fielda help perform these inventory control routines with greater efficiency?
How inspectors conduct KWD Meter Inventory Control Inspections:
These inventory control inspections are usually conducted when older meters get replaced with new ones. Technicians document the KHZ used readings and the condition of the existing unit to be replaced and log in the exact location details of the wall mount. In addition, watt-hour readings are calculated and logged so that consumers can sign off on the total consumption values, especially during the meter replacement process. Other documented details include the device’s install date, customer details, chip number of a new device being installed, device type and specifications, etc.
Why KWD Meter Inventory Control Inspections are so critical:
Inventory management becomes complex when there are a large number of items being tracked and monitored. Water supply companies manage thousands of KWD devices, and they involve maintenance and replacements, which may occur at different points, making an accurate inventory and replacement log very critical. This inventory control helps them plan fieldwork and new device purchase management more effectively. The cumulative logs also ensure readings are accurately maintained for proper billing.
How Fielda helps enhance KWD Meter Inventory Control Inspections:
Fielda is designed to help manage large-scale data gathering from the field. The process is simplified with custom pre-designed templates, which inspectors can easily adapt as they need. Inspectors can quickly log in readings and observations and add additional documents, maps, or drawings when required. Even though many KWD meters are located in remote rural locations with limited internet access, Fielda’s offline data capture enables uninterrupted field data collection.
