Production, Inventory and WMS Solutions
Operations all in one — Purchasing, Manufacturing, QC, Inventory Control and Warehouse Management
With Minotaur, you control your operations in one system–so you know your costs, yields, what raw materials you have on hand, what you need to do to meet your production plan and customer commitments. You’ll know what’s in your warehouse, what’s currently in process and what’s been shipped to each customer.
Creating an accurate landed cost for your items means tying together all freight, duty, brokerage, and extra costs into the cost of your products. Once product reaches your dock, you’ll be able to manage expiry dates, lot or serial numbers, CofA’s or lab test results, putting items away and moving them around your facility, whether with paperwork or using handheld computers with scanners. Produce GS1-128 barcode labels for products or scan those already on the arriving goods and the flow of those materials in, around and out of your warehouse will be at your fingertips.
Assembly and Disassembly Bills of Materials
Unlimited bills of materials and unlimited levels for recipes or packaging lists mean you can relieve inventory at each step creating accurate costs for your manufactured items. Whether you need assembly manufacturing (building up products) or disassembly manufacturing (breaking down products creating waste or rework) Minotaur has you covered. Print GS1-128 Labels for finished goods to help your customers with their own traceability programs.
Get control of your warehouse
When you have control of your warehouse, your production runs more smoothly because you know what raw materials you have, what you need to order, when been ordered but not yet arrived, what products are safe for shipping (QC has released) and you can reduce waste by managing items that are going to expire. Track CHEP and CPC pallet receipts and shipments. When you can trust the numbers, your front office has visibility into products available and in production to provide better service to your customers.
Handheld scanning of barcodes and RFID tags
Scan individual unit labels or containerize product into skids, producing pallet labels. Skid labels reduce scanning when transferring product around the warehouse, to offsite storage or out to customer orders. Lot suggestion for picking can be by First In, First Out (FIFO) or by First to Expire (FTE). Shipping documents can include CofA’s for the specific lots of product being shipped for those customers that want it. Rotation of stock occurs, lots and expiry dates are tracked and customers can be sent an invoice with the order or after the shipment is complete. Invoicing can be by paper, email or through Minotaur’s fully-integrated EDI. No double entry, full traceability. That means faster billing, faster payments, reduced cashflow and happier customers.
Adding Minotaur’s handheld WMS (warehouse management system) means you can Receive, Pick to Work Order, Transfer, Pick to Customer Order, Transform (break down cases into units), and Count, all using handheld scanners. No add-on products needed with Minotaur–One system is a better way!
