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.

Custom software conception, design, testing and implementation usually involves at least six common steps in its reality:
1. String and Bailing Wire
Where the initial design meets the actual user interface. Testing shows things that need to be tweaked.
2. Bug Reports and Fixes
You repair major leaks. More string is added to the code.
3. The Working Version
Here is where you learn what it needs to be feature-rich and consistent.
4. Visiting Dead-Ends
You fix and add new features. Performance improves. Single features are focused on and success is tracked. Synchronization occurs.
5. The Swimming Pool Test
Architecture that supports function is streamlined. Features get default settings and they are tested while turned on as well as when turned off. It stays afloat.
6. The Camel Runs Like a Horse
The package grows and changes as new ideas are requested and implemented.
While the above list may seem confusing, they are standard steps that evolve from first to last as the software solution finds its footing in the world and begins to provide all of the customer’s needs from its design.

Your company exists in a huge sea of competition. Industry comparisons take metrics, such as your turnover rate or cycle time, and compare them with other businesses in your industry. Determining how your metrics compare to your competitors’ gives you a way to judge whether your inventory control meets the industry norm, falls short or surpasses it.
The Item Fill Rate is the percentage of items a customer ordered that your company was able to ship. The lower the ratio, the poorer your inventory performance. You should track not only the fill rate for each individual order but the fill rate for all orders – what percentage of orders go out completely filled, and what percentage have items missing.
The Lost Sales metric indicated the number of your potential customers that ask for an item and then go elsewhere because you do not stock it. Companies that use this metric usually track back orders – reserving part of the next scheduled shipment for the customer to purchase – as well as lost sales. Using both metrics will give you an idea of the gap between your inventory and your customers’ needs.
Several metrical considerations are of paramount importance to how well your stock management is handled. Your best system should take into consideration a wide array of avenues for improvement, considering the best metrics in a variety of areas.
Along with accurate stock counts, inventory turnover tracking and accurate cycle times the above metrics will help you gain control of your comprehensive inventory management. SIMMS Inventory Management software provides all the tools that you will need to hold the lead over your competitors.

A Japanese soap manufacturing company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a box of soap that was empty.
Management tasked its engineers to solve the problem permanently to avoid any recurrence. The engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soapboxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast.
A rank-and-file employee that was posed the same problem came out with another solution. He bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soapbox passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.
SIMMS 2018 has all the features to make your inventory/accounting management just as easy as that fan. Give it a free trial today here: http://simmssoftware.com/inventory-software/Download-Trial.aspx
