Lot Tracking with SIMMS 2018


The ability to track component lots from raw material to finished product shipped to customers is a key requirement for many companies. SIMMS 2018 Inventory Management Software provides this functionality for either stocked parts. Upon receipt of lots from a vendor or from manufacturing, lot traceability provides where-used and lots-used visibility. An optional feature is 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 historical quality references even after shipment.

The ability to track serialized and lot-related parts to a customer is important for warranty and service management. SIMMS 2018 provides the ability to create serial numbers and manufacturer lots at any time during manufacturing. Finished products are assigned serial numbers and/or manufacturing lots and when shipped to the customer, the serial numbers and manufacturing lots used are saved to history, providing their traceability against the original customer order.
