Unify Inventory Across the Warehouse and the Factory

Ensure that production flow is never needlessly limited by lack of resources and dependencies. FactoryLogix manages all key resources including material feeders, tools, operator certification records, calibration records and consumables, so that availability of needed items is confirmed before committing, following finite planning principles.

Utilize Labor, Tooling, and Other Constraints

Ensure your processes are under control with the most current available resources, regardless of what form they may take, necessary to complete production. From systems external to FactoryLogix managing these resources, acquire operator certification records, calibrated tool maintenance records, and consumable material records.
