I am in charge of ordering replacement parts and such at the factory where I work. Well I am actually in charge of the cheap load cell cable replacements for a factory warehouse. I am actually just in charge of ordering for the factory warehouse, someone else does the ordering for the actual factory, but that is kind of beside the point. Anyway, what I need to do is to look into ordering load cells for the warehouse’s scales, because the current ones are broken, and not only do we need to have some to replace the ones that are broken, we also need to have a couple backups to put into the inventory, so that we will not run into this problem again in the future.
I have not been working my position for that long, but, if I had been here longer, then I probably would have realized that we were in need of new load cells. I guess I am still learning the ropes of job. But in any case, I am going to definitely need to order them today, because we need them as soon as possible. It is quite hard to get anything done without the scales working, because we need to weigh everything that goes into the warehouse for inventory purposes. So you can see that it definitely messes up our system we do not have working scales. We have one set of scales that is still operational, but it does not work over the same range of weights that the broken one does, and so we are not able to do everything that we would normally do. It is a problem and my boss is on my butt about it, but I am going to try to get it taken care of right now, so that I can rest easy and not worry about getting chewed out.
