Manufacturing subassemblies, or items that need to be manufactured for final products, can be a challenge. This is especially true in electronics and industrial equipment manufacturing where products are complex — and even more so when they are manufactured in-house.

To help manufacturers in this industry and beyond scale operations and improve efficiency, Katana’s latest product update comes with a new workflow that makes it easier to manufacture products that contain subassemblies.

Introducing a new workflow for MOs with subassemblies

When creating a manufacturing order (MO) for a product that contains subassemblies, new MOs are now automatically created and reordered for all nested subassemblies. So instead of needing to create a separate MO for each subassembly and adjusting the priority manually, Katana now does the following to ensure your end-product is manufactured as quickly and efficiently as possible:

  1. MOs containing subassemblies in the product recipe will trigger the creation of separate MOs for each subassembly
  2. MOs for subassemblies to be ranked with a higher priority than the main assembly MOs

Happy manufacturing!
