Lot tracking of components from raw material to finished product is a key requirement for many companies. SIMMS Inventory Software provides this functionality for either stocked parts or parts issued already to customers (beneficial for warranty and recall tracking). Lot traceability provides where-used and lots-used information at the receiving level. You also gain the ability to designate a group of attributes that can be collected and tracked for each lot. These attributes follow the lot for the history of the lot record in the system, providing for accurate and historical quality references even after shipment.
Tracking serialized and lot-related parts to a customer is important for warranty and service management. SIMMS provides the ability to create serial numbers and manufacturer’s lots at any time during the manufacturing process. Finished products are assigned serial numbers and/or manufacturer’s lots and once shipped to the customer, the serial numbers and manufacturer’s lots utilized are saved to history to provide traceability against the original order.
