This Inventory module provides the ability to track individual containers or individual parts on the shop floor. It is designed for manufacturing facilities, especially part manufacturers, tool shops and other situations where detailed, real-time tracking is required. Each container or part is bar coded with a unique serial number used for tracking and traceability. Each inventory record includes Serial No, Part Number, Location, Status and other pertinent data. Inventory records can be seached and summarized for as required to provide real-time inventory reports. The inventory module is the foundation for many other modules, including Production Tracking, Heat/Lot Traceability, Tool Life Tracking, and Scheduling.
