Inventory Module is designed to manage Raw Material (Purchase Item) and Finished Goods. It is a unique feature to consolidate ‘goods movement’ and ‘inventory data’ all the time by the system generating the transaction data based on the actual goods movements.

Implementation of Inventory Module aims to improve efficiency of inventory related operation as well as to increase accuracy of inventory related data. First-In-First-Out control is executed based on Raw Material & Finished Goods Lot Number created by the receiving date. The system is also designed to provide the traceability information by linking of raw material lot, production lot and finished goods lot.

2. Work-In-Progress Module (WIP)

Work-In-Progress Inventory and Production Status Control Module (WIP) are designed for (1) WIP Stock Management, (2) Production Status Control and (3) Production Related Data Compilation. The module visualizes production shop floor based on the captured data by RF handy terminals located in production shop floor.

(1) WIP Stock Management
WIP Stock Management is for WIP inventory inquiry. Applicable WIP inventory information is extracted by Item codes, Work shop, Job order number and so on.

(2) Production Status Control
Production Status Control is for process progress inquiry on real time basis. Applicable process progress information is extracted by Job order number, Item codes, Work shop and so on. Business Alarm Inquiry enables easy information sharing at exception handling occurrence.

(3) Production Related Data Compilation
This function is to provide the real time production related data, such as Production Start & End Date/Time, Operator ID, Machine No. Production Actual Results (OK & NG) by utilizing RF Handy Terminals with scanning barcodes or touch panel operations. At the occurrence of NG or machine downtime, Defect Code and Resource Downtime Reasons Code can be captured by scanning barcodes.
