Finished Goods & Material Availability

Built in batch traceability with expiry date tracking allows you to use the right stock at the right time – at the best quality. Real-time updates of inventory and operations, and complete order fulfillment at your fingertips.
Bill of Materials (Product Recipes)
You can create a specific bill of materials (or product recipe) for each product and product variant; you can add both materials and subassemblies to your recipes. Based on your bill of materials, Katana will make automatic inventory adjustments, calculate manufacturing costs and check the availability of materials for manufacturing orders.
