Being able to use a single part number to order or pull multiple items at one time is a great productivity tool. If a user needs more advanced kit building, eTurns tells you exactly how many of any kit you can build right now with the quantities of individual items in inventory. You can also use min/maxs to replenish kits. If the suppliers from whom you orders kits cannot accept kit part numbers when replenishing, TrackStock will send you the individual part numbers that make up the kit.
Sub-assemblies that require serial numbers can also be managed in TrackStock. Many end-users that bid on government jobs or are in the oil and gas industry, for example, require serial numbers on the completed kit, such as a hose assembly or circuit breaker panel, and the ability to generate and track these with TrackStock versus doing this manually is critical for suppliers in meeting ISO standards.
Creating work orders and managing work in process (WIP) is easy to do with the TrackStock Kitting Feature and allows users to know exactly what items are in WIP and who pulled those items. This is especially critical for expensive components used in kits and sub-assemblies. Items can be transferred in and out of general inventory from the WIP as needed.
