Finished Goods & Material Availability

Katana takes available raw materials and automatically allocates them to production orders, as well as finished goods to sales orders. If you receive a sales order for a product which is not in stock, Katana shows you right away if you have the materials needed to produce it. 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 bills of materials, Katana will make automatic inventory adjustments, calculate manufacturing costs and check the availability of materials for manufacturing orders.

Priority-Based Production Planning

With Katana’s Smart Manufacturing Software you can simply drag-and-drop to prioritize manufacturing orders.

The priority of manufacturing orders affects material availability and production deadline calculations. Stay in control of your operations and never miss a deadline again!

Multichannel Sales Support

Manufacturing Floor-Level Control

Katana allows you to prioritize the task list for every production employee and production line. You can create a clear pick list and instructions for every worker. On top of that, you get a complete overview of your work orders, based on "start - in progress - complete" statuses.

Manufacturing Cost Calculations

Katana automatically calculates the manufacturing cost for your product, based on the bill of materials (product recipe) and production operations defined for that specific product.
