San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 11, 2014
ASAP Systems, an industry leader in providing barcode inventory systems, today released the Inventory Assembly feature in BarCloud, its cloud-based SaaS application. BarCloud users now have the ability to easily build assemblies or finished goods from a detailed bill of materials. The new feature enables businesses with inventory for work-in-process (WIP) and light manufacturing to boost end-to-end traceability, productivity, and control.
“We know businesses with light to complex manufacturing processes are tired of using workarounds or multiple software applications to track assemblies along with standard inventory. That is why we designed BarCloud to be a comprehensive inventory solution,” said Greg Wachowiak, Senior VP of Engineering.
Essentially, if you are managing assemblies, BarCloud provides you with the tools you need to make your manufacturing more organized and efficient. You can specify the raw materials and components needed to manufacture each specific product.
For example, in PC assembly, the product requires a predefined motherboard, chassis, memory, drives, peripherals, and software. After defining what is needed, Inventory Assembly allows you to efficiently complete each job, and track the associated stock quantities and costs in an organized database. Once the assembly is created, the stock inventory is consumed, and the amount used is automatically deducted from inventory.
BarCloud’s bill of materials and assembly functionalities allow you to create predictability and help you better coordinate machine usage and labor. Employees at multiple locations can access BarCloud anywhere, anytime to collaborate and view information in real time. In addition, users save time with the ability to edit previously saved bill of materials to quickly create new specialized assemblies as needed. This functionality gives business added flexibility and further streamlines the manufacturing of distinct products.
