The following thesis meticulously explains what the steps are for measuring product level. This is through the speed of light in a silo that contains dry parchment coffee during days, weeks or months. The best form to embrace the majority of points and to get precision was analyzed through three fundamental pieces of equipment: the first one was a level measurement, the second one was a device that ejects bidirectional movement and the third one was a controller. The aim of this study and the general objective of this project is to obtain the volume of the content and the net weight of the coffee in the silo. The goal of measuring the weight of the coffee is to establish an inventory control in product sales at the Beneficio CoopeVictoria, because there is a lack of an appropriate inventory performance. Consequently, this leads to bad organization of assets, generating discontent with customers, the imbalance of the relationship between farmers and the Beneficio, and additionally, a deficit in business economics. Taking as a starting point the above stated problems, a solution was developed which presented to the managers of CoopeVictoria, a viable and robust way that allows them to have control of the quantity of product in the silo by means of an electronic control system.
