A common requirement for a Metal Stamper is to send WIP material off-site for further processing. Inventory must be tracked going to/from a processor, and lead times must be considered when scheduling jobs.
Our processor system pays special attention to outside processing, incorporating processor-specific features as an integral part of our package, from production, and purchasing to shipping, and inventory control.
This material at a processor is tracked as a separate inventory on our screens giving production/material planners clear visibility of the location and status of that material.
Bill of material for outside process operation, allows for the consuming of your material(s) at the processor when a different part # is returned
