Wholesale Electric’s Cable Management System is an integral module of our CMMS system. This internet-based program allows construction the opportunity to measure actual circuit length requirements without including a percentage of cable as a contingency or safety factor for the actual installation. This results in the just-in-time delivery of cut-to-length cables. In addition, it eliminates the typical extra percentage of cable, which is added to compensate for the manufacturing and shipping tolerances from the manufactures.
Wholesale Electric buys and maintains a dedicated inventory of cable per project specifications in the longest possible manufactured length and provides the field with the exact cut-to-length circuit at the time of installation. Wholesale’s system manages each master reel and engineered circuit length. When the field is ready to install cable, the exact length is measured and released in the system. Every reel is tagged with circuit ID and length requested before shipping. Once a cable circuit has been released in the system, it cannot be duplicated.
As with all aspects of the CMMS process, Wholesale Electric strives to become part of the Project Team from the earliest possible stages of the project. From this point, the Wholesale material management team becomes intimate with all aspects of the project requirements, and follows the cable to the final point of installation and termination.
