Looking at commodity prices today, the cost has increased dramatically over recent years. This has led to the improved management of certain resources.
Taking a closer look to at a process using liquids as an input cost into production (diesel, petrol, oils, etc), a mayor needs exists to more optimally manage those input commodities. Thus, the Fluid Automated Management Solution concept was born.
Tecmo Automation, partnering with Cybernetic Software Development, has identified this need in the middle 1990?s and has been creating dedicated fluid management equipment since then. Tecmo Automation is a proudly South African company and has been in business since early 1980?s.
Tecmo?s has a wide variety of market sectors that it caters for, but one of the main focus areas is that of product and application development. Thus Tecmo develops and manufactures all of its own equipment. This in turns allows the equipment to be better prepared for the African market as we Tecmo understands the dynamics of the African market.
Fluid Automated Management System is a fuel and lubricant administration system developed for the industry. This delivers control and easy management of fuel and lubricant supplies.
The aim of the system is to assist management in easy dispensing of fluids together with the delivery of transaction reports rather than being a high level security system.
Key features like fuel dispensing control, wet stock usage monitoring, automatic vehicle recognition, driver identification, driver license management and working hour monitoring, blacklisting, various report generating functions and HTML file downloading via LAN/Internet - makes for a comprehensive management tool for controlling the fuel and lubricant use in this demanding environment.
The figure on the next page gives a representation of how the different components interact to form the complete system. Refer to the technical document for more information on each individual aspect of the system.
