TrulinX Software Features for Your Fabrication and Assembly Needs

Work Order Management

Item Master

TrulinX has a sophisticated Work Order Management (WOM) designed so that you can keep track of each component in your automation and robotic assemblies, such as process controls, customer manifolds, compressed air solutions, and custom control panels.

With features specifically for your industry and an easy and flexible interface, the TrulinX WOM allows users to 'drag and drop' components and create subassemblies easily at any level of the bill. You can source, expedite and route all from one screen.

You have the ability to 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 on 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. 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 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.

Additionally, while assembly is being completed, you can easily move components to ‘Work in Progress’ inventory. Meanwhile, sophisticated screens allow you to track and manage each component of each sub-assembly.
