Enterprise Distribution and Logistics Inventory and supplies represent one of the single largest financial investments a manufacturing company can make on an annual basis. Built with administrative ease and efficiency, FlexGen 4 - EDL delivers the tools needed to effectively manage and streamline a company's substantial investment in materials. From managing Lot and Serial Number traceability to making on-time delivery of kits to production control, all aspects of the distribution and logistics system must work seamlessly with each other. FlexGen 4 - EDL supports this process by assuring that inventory is properly handled, accounted for, distributed and fully documented in compliance with the highest operating standards of a company and given industry.

Enterprise Distribution & Logistics includes the following software features:

Multi - Warehouse Management
FlexGen 4 - EDL incorporates automated tools needed to ensure inventory and finished goods are moved swiftly throughout the entire distribution cycle. The preparation and security behind all the necessary documentation required to authorize inventory transactions, including bar coded pack slips, work order routings, shipping manifests and pick lists, are generated on time and error free. In addition, the QA procedures developed to manage material certifications and test results, are easily administered and electronically attached to each inventory component, if required.
   
Inventory Control
Inventory management demands a system for handling procedures and accountability which secures the asset value of all materials. FlexGen 4 - EDL application services allow for automated receiving and transfer of materials, locating stock according to flexible locator designations, populating floor stock with supplies and consumables, and expedited delivery of materials directly to the floor. Materials are fully secured and available to maximize the flow of product and simplified process administration.
   
Bar Code - Inventory Manager
The FlexGen 4 - EDL Bar Code Inventory Manager offers an automation suite designed to facilitate the bar coding and transaction management of all your typical inventory requirements. Bar coded documents and labels are printed upon demand and placed on the appropriate forms, containers, documents or parts specific to the need. Travelers and pick lists can have bar codes displayed on the forms, allowing for quick and easy scanning of the associated transaction. In addition, a full cycle counting process is available through the RF data collection, driven by bar codes.
   
Inventory Quarantine
Certain inventory categories require special stocking, documentation and distribution. Many companies have production requirements calling for solvents, chemicals and otherwise potentially harmful materials that demand physical isolation and restricted access. To meet these requirements, FlexGen 4 - EDL has a set of processes used to track and control highly regulated materials. Incorporated in these processes are fully integrated QA procedures and handling instructions implemented to assure safety and governmental compliance.
   
Lot / Serial Number Traceability
For manufacturing companies engaged in producing and servicing high-technology products, the need for Lot and Serial Number tracking is mandatory. FlexGen 4 - EDL allows for comprehensive “cradle to grave” tracking and archival of critical components such as required for medical products, avionics and aerospace components. These processes track selected materials from the supplier, through manufacturing, to the end-user. For purposes of product recall, upgrade or performance tracking, FlexGen 4 - EDL simplifies and fully supports this mission critical administrative task.
   
Customer / Supplier Consigned Inventory
A unique class of inventory is that which is either supplied directly by a customer for use in production or materials provided by a supplier on a consignment basis. Both types of material transactions require a distinct administrative process to properly account for them. FlexGen 4 - EDL will let you accurately track each form of inventory transaction, including source, dates, value, quantities and financial terms for consumption. These transactions must be segregated from your company owned materials to assure proper use and financial accountability.
   
Automated Shipping / Receiving
The Shipping and Receiving function represents a key touch point for all inbound and outbound inventory transactions. FlexGen 4 - EDL streamlines the typical administrative tasks required to properly document all customer shipments, including pack slips, shipping documents, customs forms and commercial invoices when required. Upon completing each transaction, the FlexGen 4 - EDL web services is automatically updated to keep customers informed of their shipment status through the Customer Self-Service Portal. All incoming materials are reviewed, documents examined and QA procedures fulfilled, guaranteeing only acceptable materials on hand and available to production control management.
