SIMMS Advanced BOM Management Solution streamlines distribution assembly...
Do you distribute products and have a need for advanced kitting (BOM) functions?

Complex bills of material can pose numerous problems since they require coordination among many team members including design, manufacturing, quality, and procurement. Often there are multiple sites, systems and teams that access different versions of the data at different times.

Alternative methods of BOM management and change impact analysis require users to consult multiple systems to gather the necessary data, yet once the data is gathered, most methods of bill of material software management fail to handle the complexities of the differing perspectives of the BOM that are needed by each group.

Deploy SIMMS Bill of Material Software and Improve Part Integrity

Do you assemble products before shipping them? or perhaps you just wish to automatically insert dependent items along with the master item into the transaction at one time by just having to select and insert the master item? (referred to as phantom kitting) If so, then SIMMS Advanced BOM (kitting) functionality is the perfect solution to help you manage production and bom assembly without material issues.

SIMMS BOM Module is Easy to use

Easy to use Kitting software

Advanced Kitting (BOM Management) provides an easy-to-use production entry window where finished goods are reported after the fact. This single point of entry eliminates numerous labor and production transactions by automatically issuing material quantities, outside process transactions and labor time to finished kits.

Distributors can identify labor as part of the kitting process. This dramatically improves product costing, subsequent pricing and the kitting procedure.
   
Creating BOM (Kit) Items

Creating BOM (Kit) Items

BOM (Kit) items are inventory items created by packaging units of other inventory items together for sale to and assembly by the customer. For example, instead of assembling a complete car for sale or selling each part as a separate item, the manufacturer might package a kit consisting of the frame, wheels, motor, seat and transmission, which the purchaser could easily assemble.

Kit Schema Maintenance is enhanced further so a non-stock item can be designated as a component of a kit item. This saves time and disk space since there is no need to create item records for non-stock items.
   
Disassembling BOM (Kit) Items

Disassembling BOM (Kit) Items

If a BOM item unit is disassembled because it is overstocked or its parts are needed for a separate sale, the disassembly and disposition of its parts is recorded through the Kit manager menu.
   
BOM (Kit) Items

BOM (Kit) Items

BOM items can be pre-built according to a BOM schema defined through a BOM Schema setup menu function and stocked in inventory, or they can be built as needed according to the same schema.

You can choose whether or not to assign kit numbers to kit item units. Kit numbers can be used for item identification in addition to for additional production run information.
   
Customizable BOM Schema

Customizable BOM Schema

Though many kit items may use standard components, SIMMS provides the flexibility to allow customization of a kit item to meet the special needs of a customer or a specific kit build. During the kit building creation.

The Kitting Manager provides a very simple and straightforward way of assigning components for kit items. The system also provides full flexibility by allowing you to add non-stock items to a kit formula.
     
Phantom Kitting

Phantom Kitting

We have added Phantom Kitting to SIMMS Inventory Software, that allow the user to designate certain kits in the system to not be built while the option is active. However, if a phantom kit is entered onto a transaction, all its kit components are entered.

Details: A new check box has been added to the Kit Schema window designating such "Phantom Kits", in addition to to the Kit Schema Manager window. The Kit Manager window will not display phantom kits, and an alert has been added to the Transaction-screen's Item tab to indicate a selection of any phantom kit.

When a phantom kit is inserted into any transaction, the rest of the components related to the phantom kit are auto-inserted into the transaction, using the items' default prices/costs.

If there is insufficient stock for a component, the Negative Stock Quantity is automatically utilized.

Once the components are auto-inserted, the user is free to select individual line items to edit their details, including swapping their parts out, if required.
     
BOM Reporting

BOM Reporting

A set of kit reports provides ease in reviewing various kit assembly information and in proper tracking of the kit items in inventory.
     
Integration of BOM with Lot Control

Integration of BOM with Lot Control

Lot control numbers can be assigned to groups of kit item units, in addition to assigning a specific kit number to each unit. For example, all of the kits for the assembly of a computer workstation packaged on a particular day, by a particular person, or using particular parts, can be assigned a specific lot number.
     
Integration of Kitting with Serial Numbers

Integration of Kitting with Serial Numbers

Kit item units can also be individually serialized. This permits the assigning of serial numbers to units of a kit item, in addition to assigning a kit number to each kit itself.
     
Kit Item Transaction Report.

Kit Item Transaction Report

Review kit item transactions by using a special Inventory Control report that includes a variety of details about kit item transactions. This report can show information about all or a range of kit items, and can list only built kit items, only disassembled kit items, or both built and disassembled kit items. It can also include kit items in a particular location or a range of locations, and kit items built on a particular date or a range of dates.
