The KnarrTek software consists of three standard systems:
KnarrTek Job and Materials Tracking System (JMTS) performs real-time inventory and operations tracking for manufacturers and industrial distributors, using technologies such as barcode scanning and mobile computing. JMTS includes a full industrial warehouse management solution, which uses license-plate-number container tracking methods, the same as are used by Amazon, FedEx, and UPS.
JMTS includes the capability to enter or import and store Bills-of-Materials (BOMs) and routes to make products. JMTS then uses these BOMs and routes to generate work orders to make a specified quantity of product and to track the transformation of raw materials through a sequence of manufacturing operations into finished products.
This enables JMTS to capture job cost data as well as materials traceability history data.
In addition, JMTS tracks customer jobs and WIP materials, in real-time, as they flow between work-centers, including tracking the materials consumed and produced by each manufacturing operation.
JMTS tracks materials by lot number, serial number, and expiration date and can track inventory and assets, by customer and project, at multiple different locations.
JMTS can also track the quality control status of materials, and is a CFR 21 Part 11 compliant barcode-tracking system.
JMTS also includes a real-time job scheduling capability and does available inventory prediction, which can be used for planning the ordering or making of more raw or intermediate inventory.
KnarrTek Materials Tracking System (MTS) is a subset of JMTS for those organizations, such as industrial distributors, which do not need to track manufacturing operations. MTS provides a full industrial warehouse management solution, which uses license-plate-number container tracking methods, the same as are used by Amazon, FedEx, and UPS. MTS tracks materials by lot number, serial number, and expiration date. MTS can track inventory and assets, by customer and project, at multiple different locations. MTS can track the quality control status of materials, and is a CFR 21 Part 11 compliant barcode-tracking system.
KnarrTek Job Tracking System (JTS) is a subset of JMTS for those manufacturing organizations that simply wish to uses barcode scanning to track and schedule jobs through a sequence of manufacturing operations. JTS tracks when operations start and finish, as well as the labor required and the piecework quantities processed. In addition, JTS performs real-time scheduling of jobs through a sequence of manufacturing operations to help ensure customer orders get delivered on time.
All three products support the DEX/MDEX Data Exchange Interface options, which can be used for custom reporting, as well as interfacing to ERP and accounting systems.
Both MTS and JMTS support the TAG Barcode Label Printing Option to automate the printing of barcode labels on-demand based upon the contents of the tracking system database.
In addition to which, KnarrTek offers WIPtracker Custom Work-in-Process, Job and Materials Tracking Systems, which, like the KnarrTek standard products, are based on the BellHawk® Work-in-Process, Job, and Materials Tracking Software Platform and the MilramX Decision Support Software.
These WIPTracker custom solutions integrate some or all of the features of JMTS and can add features such as weighing scale interfaces and RFID, which typically require extensive customization. These WIPTracker solutions often use MilramX for text and Email alerting, supply-chain integration, and integration with E-Commerce systems. These solutions always start out with a design-phase and may involve the development of a Pilot system, using agile implementation methods.
Licenses to use the KnarrTek standard software are available from KnarrTek and its reseller partners for:
The online subscription makes it quick and easy to get started with minimal IT support. As each client gets their own private website and database on a BellHawk Online server, these can be easily transferred to a client's own Windows Server when needed.
These same licenses are available from KnarrTek's BellHawk Reseller partners, who also resell the required barcode scanning and printing equipment and supplies, needed for complete system installation.
