Which manufacturing methods are supported by Katana?

Katana supports a variety of workflows, including make-to-order (MTO) and make-to-stock (MTS). With MTO, products are manufactured only after an order has been received. This allows companies to produce custom products or products that are in high demand and short supply. In contrast, MTS involves manufacturing products even before an order has been received. This method is often used for products that have a long lead time or are not easily customized.

You don’t need an API to use Katana, but it can be helpful if you want to automate data transfers between the services you use or create custom workflows. You can find more information about our API in our documentation.
