Work Order Management

Item Master

TrulinX provides sophisticated Work Order Management software designed to keep track of each component in your assemblies, such as Power Units, Pumps, Robotics and Motion Control, customer manifolds, compressed air solutions, and custom control panels.

With an easy and flexible interface and features specific to the industrial automation and robotics industry, the TrulinX work order management software allows users to easily 'drag and drop' components and create subassemblies at any level of the bill. You can source, expedite, and route all from one screen.

You can also enter the work order directly from the sales order or create it separately and then later attach it to the sales order. This is helpful in cases where repairs or estimates need to be applied before the job becomes an order. Items do not have to exist in order to be entered in a work order, which will make life much easier for your customer service reps.

Bill of Materials

When quoting an assembly, TrulinX allows you to pick a pre-defined BOM, copy an existing one, or select one that may have several versions for easy quoting and order entry. You can account for every component used in an assembly, even those that are damaged and scrapped during the fabrication process.

The TrulinX BOM feature also allows integration of labor and burden lines so you can get a true picture of your gross margins. You can enter labor on a job by the total amount or by tracking time spent by specific employees.

For robotics and automation assemblies that are specific to a customer or are always built slightly differently, TrulinX offers multiple versions per BOM parent that can be recalled, copied, modified, or saved as a new BOM at any time for more flexibility and customization of your BOMs.

Fabrication Management

TrulinX software makes fabrication management a breeze, allowing distributors to source, expedite, and route components and assemblies all from the same screen. TrulinX offers multiple routing options, such as internal, another location, outsourced fabricator, or final destination, for components.

While an assembly is being completed, you can also easily move components to ‘Work in Process’ inventory. Meanwhile, having sophisticated screens allows you to track and manage each component of each sub-assembly.

Production Management

Production Management is essential in any industry, but especially for robotics and automation distributors to be able to follow, measure, and optimize production performance. Properly managing production capacity requires a careful balance between your available resources and the customer demand or project requirements. Production Management helps:

  • Generate accurate schedules designed around current staffing capacity and inventory levels
  • Reduce costs and errors on the shop floor
  • Prevent stock-outs, dead stock and overstock
  • Reduce employee labor, burden and disposition entry through barcoding scanning
  • Guarantee the correct number of resources for your supply chain management
  • Optimize resource management and allocations
