Manage and move inventory in real-time so jobs are no longer delayed because of missing material
Every job requires a bill of materials and routing. When this data is stored separately from your scheduling and inventory modules, it creates significant inefficiencies across all of production. Digitizing this information, even in job shops, is essential for a streamlined workflow.
Scanning labels or QR codes allows businesses to capture inventory levels in real-time, as well as giving you the ability to pick and move materials with a proper understanding of its location. By utilizing mobile scanners at the shipping/receiving department, production managers can quickly determine when material has arrived and production can begin.
As production begins on your raw materials the value increases. Tracking work-in-progress (WIP) inventory, and understanding the valuation affects your cost of goods sold, gross profit, current assets and working capital. Knowing these costs gives your business more control and financial freedom.
When inventory is constantly moved and stored in different locations, it can be difficult to locate items. Fulcrum natively integrates with label printers and barcode scanners to easily label and identify materials.
Recording inventory in spreadsheets and other disconnected systems prevents businesses of accurately viewing inventory in real time, which impacts purchasing and production. Fulcrum utilizes barcode scanners so both office staff and floor personnel know exactly what is available.
Many certifications require businesses to track material origin, and keep a running list of the material used for different orders. Fulcrum understands lot control and has traceability functionality to quickly identify materiality.
Some job shops and OEMs claim that BOMs and routings must be manual due to the variability of jobs coming through the shop. Fulcrum utilizes an intuitive BOM and routing builder to easily digitize this information leading to improved production timelines and accurate inventory counts.
You took our whole workflow and made it so simple. I can't tell you how happy I am.
I've never worked at any other company that had software as good as this.
It's actually quite spooky that there are no workarounds in this system.
