Manage production and quality control with industrial manufacturing software

Industrial manufacturers use Katana’s manufacturing ERP software to track inventory movements, set up reorder points, and prioritize orders. Features like multilevel bills of materials (BOMs) and subassemblies make precise costing easy. And Katana supports made-to-order and made-to-stock workflows in tandem to help industrial manufacturers stay flexible.

We like that Katana has a simple interface, and it is very user-friendly. We went all-in from day one, implemented and started using it right away. Their great customer support is a rare gem to be found among other manufacturing software solutions.

How Katana’s ERP software helps industrial manufacturers optimize supply chain management

A key priority for any business is to meet customer needs. But in the increasingly competitive 21st-century economy, defined by digital transformation, it’s not only consumers who are demanding an improved service from their suppliers. Manufacturers need to consider stakeholders at all stages of their supply chain, from suppliers to customers and, in some cases, retailers. 

Industrial manufacturing companies need to find ways of satisfying the demands of internal stakeholders, too — especially when outdated systems and processes are currently meeting these demands. This means updating legacy computer systems that don’t always offer manufacturers the flexibility they require in many cases. It also means finding an MRP software or a manufacturing ERP software upgrade if they already have a digital system in place, or a digital replacement for paper-based workflows. That can prove cumbersome and inefficient in fast-moving conditions.

Is essential if you’re looking into improving your entire manufacturing business.

Smart manufacturing software features that give you total visibility and control

Manufacturers today use a range of software solutions — inventory software, order management systems, and other data management tools. Cloud ERP software like Katana integrates with e-commerce, accounting, reporting, and more services while offering real-time master planning and inventory managing features to tie it all together. Not to mention, having all the data you need in one place makes quality management and ensuring on-time delivery easier than even a neatly organized system of online spreadsheets.

With the help of a visual and integrated cloud ERP solution, manufacturers can easily generate manufacturing orders according to their bill of materials (BOM) and spot bottlenecks and inventory issues before they affect production lead time. This makes quality management and waste reduction simple and effective, especially in industries like industrial manufacturing, where product costs and complexity are high.
