Full support for in-house and contract manufacturing

Businesses always look for ways to streamline their processes, reduce overheads, and increase efficiency. One way to do this is by opting for contract manufacturing.

In the aerospace and defense industry especially, incredible precision is needed. But perhaps you don’t have access to the facilities required to produce certain high-end parts. Outsourcing your production allows you to benefit from the expertise of other manufacturers.

Katana’s aerospace manufacturing software lets you issue fully outsourced purchase orders, so you can track raw materials at partner locations and monitor the service fees of contractors for accurate costing. This ensures you can turn out quality high-end items without bearing the large upfront costs of building your own facilities.

Avoid stock-outs with reorder points

Finding out you don’t have the necessary raw materials or finished products to fulfill your customer’s order, can cause quite a panic. Not being able to deliver an item to your client in a timely manner can quickly damage your reputation as a company.

To avoid such scenarios, it’s important to know your exact inventory levels. Katana gives you a real-time overview of these and in addition, allows you to set reorder points.

As you use up your resources and items fall to the specific thresholds, Katana will highlight the items, letting you know it’s time to replenish your stock.
