Lot tracking of inventory items as raw materials or finished products is a crucial requirement for many businesses. SIMMS 2014 Inventory Management Software provides this capability for either stocked parts or parts issued already to customers (which is useful for warranties and recall tracking). Traceability by lot gives you information on where they were used from the point of receipt through any and all stages of production. You can designate a list of attributes that can be collected and tracked for every lot, allowing you to follow each lot’s history in the system with complete accuracy.
The tracking of serialized (and lot-related) parts to a customer is important for warranty compliance and service management. SIMMS lets you create serial numbers and manufacturer’s lots at any juncture of the manufacturing process. Finished products are assigned serial numbers and/or manufacturer’s lots and once they have been shipped to the customer, the serials and lots continue to exist in system history and permit useful trace-backs all the way to the original order.
