Track All Forms of Inventory, from Raw Materials & WIP to Finished Goods & Shipments, in Real-Time

Manufacturing Inventory Management (MIM) is a configurable solution that tracks all forms of inventory, allowing you to increase visibility through your entire order fulfillment cycle, bringing the work done by material handlers and production workers closer to the back-office systems viewed by management.
The software solution captures the tag data from radio bar codes and directs workers to complete the appropriate tasks to properly manage inventory items. The solution enables companies to quickly accommodate and automate customer specific demands, and this flexibility provides improved customer retention rates and aids in the deployment of value-added services for continued growth in customer accounts.

Features include:
• Receiving processes
• Standard labels for product labeling
• Directed inventory picking
• Directed inventory put-away
• Live-count inventory with zero disruption to warehouse product flows
• Parameter driven to allow customers to install based on their business processes
• Replaces data entry with scanning technology
• Application available and functioning when the ERP system is down for backups or maintenance
• Easily customizable

Inventory Management can be configured to identify and track all forms of inventory, from raw materials to work in process (WIP) materials to finished goods to shipments.

The system is designed to reduce errors, promote accuracy, reduce carrying costs and give greater visibility through the entire order fulfillment cycle. It does this by empowering material handlers and production workers to transact with existing legacy or prepackaged systems through a single user interface in a secure, intuitive application.

Inventory Management supports all forms of bar code data collection devices and symbologies including optional RFID enablement. In addition, integration with PLCs, scales, conveyors/converters, and automatic guided vehicles is supported. Each business process can be configured to match the way customers operate their business. Through this solution, companies can gain a powerful, competitive advantage by lowering inventory requirements in WIP and finished goods. They can also establish a formidable presence in the marketplace through decreasing lead times, increasing production velocity and continuing to eliminate information bottlenecks.

  • Inventory adjustment & transfer
  • Cycle count
  • Physical inventory
  • DRP receipt

    "Crossroads RMC was instrumental in assisting us with upgrading our LN system from 10.2 to 10.6. We had a few security obstacles that we had to work around and a short time frame in which to complete the project, but Crossroad was quick to resolved the issues to get the new system online. They were integral part of our success."

    "The recent BPCS work completed by Crossroads RMC was the most satisfying consulting project I have been involved with over my 20 year career, some of that having been a consultant myself. Hugh Carty and Luis Diaz are both very competent and efficient technically but also, importantly, respectful and courteous to all employees with whom they worked. They are what a consultant should be. Should the need arise again we will certainly hope to obtain their services."

    "Crossroads RMC has a highly responsive Director of their IBM i Group in Frank Petrasio. During our implementation of Infor’s ERP LX, we needed additional assistance beyond what Infor could directly provide. Another consultant that I trusted and respected suggested that I contact Frank. The short version of the story is “I did and I’m pleased with the results”. I used resources recommended and assigned by Frank who were both 3rd party and direct employees in the areas of EDI, OLM, Finance, and general programming during our conversion and go-live. Post go-live, I was searching for assistance with the possibility of implementing the ECC (Engineering Change Control) module of LX. I again reached out to Frank for a resource and had the opportunity to work with a consultant who knew more about ECC than anybody else I could find from any company. Overall, I would say that my experience with Frank, his company and their resources could be summed up like this: “I found a Director who understands responsiveness, works diligently to provide quality resources, met some amazing consultants and got some amazing results.” If you have need of IBM i services, contact Crossroads RMC and speak with Frank Petrasio. I believe you’ll be as happy as I have been."

    "Our upgrade from BPCS 6.1 to LX 8.3 was greatly aided by Crossroads RMC. Their extensive knowledge of the financial system was a saving grace for us since we had a system that was setup over 15 years ago by people no longer in the company. The patience and professionalism of Hugh Carty made the transition much less complicated and frustrating. There is no doubt in my mind that it would have taken a much longer period and a substantially more painful path if it was not for Crossroads RMC bending over backwards to accommodate our processes and time constraints. Crossroads RMC was also able to help us with AS400 technical training, MRP production system design and pricing using Promotions and Deals. This large swath of knowledge was very helpful in management discussions. Thanks to the Crossroads RMC team and in particular Hugh Carty, Yupo was able to bring this implementation under budget and on time."
