Ideal resource planning to match both intricate and simple electronic products
For electronic manufacturers, a lot of moving parts and specific stock need to be perfectly balanced to create products. This is why software that aids planning and scheduling is crucial, so your production schedule is aligned with customer demand, and you’re never hit by stock-outs or shortages.
You can create a detailed bill of materials for every product you offer, and variation BOMs if you offer the same products with different technical specs or minor details. This also allows for clear material requirements planning so all of the components parts of your products are accounted for, and reorder points are set so you can meet make-to-stock or make-to-order deadlines.
Manufacturing software that you can understand from day one, that helps you and your team keep product quality high
Whether you run your business from a single location or many, Katana’s ERP solution is ready to help you with resource planning, warehouse management, and quality management, as soon as you sign up. You can immediately configure settings to fit your needs and daily processes, like currencies, units of measurement, default delivery times, default tax rates, and more.
Once this is done, you can start making products, tracking production times and delivery expectations, and setting reorder points for frequently used stock. You can use barcode scanning in your warehouse, and serial number tracking to help keep an eye on stock before it’s used and products before they’re shipped.
Make sure your price ranges work with your outgoings and integrate with the best financial software
When working with multiple bills of materials for intricate, high-priced products, you need to make sure you’re also watching your bottom line.

You’ll also be able to view the moving average cost of your individual products across their life cycles, based on the shifting prices of your stock.
