Inventory Management

Frontier Inventory Management is designed to help an organization manage, plan and analyze inventory investment across the entire production and distribution network. The Frontier® ERP System has been developed around a multi-plant foundation, supporting flexible levels of inventory control and planning methodologies for both stock and customer- specified products. Frontier iInventory is an Internet-based inquiry application designed to provide enhanced visibility and drill-down into Frontier-based inventory status, requirements, replenishments and transaction history.

Frontier Inventory Management supports:

  • A multi-plant database foundation providing centralized visibility and management of inventory requirements, replenishments, and availability across all plants and warehouses
  • Flexible levels of inventory control defined by product and plant/warehouse, including a basic four walls inventory, location control, lot trace ability, and serial number tracking
  • Time phased inventory availability with detailed pegging of on-hand inventory, replenishments (purchases, plant transfers, and returns) and requirements (customer, production and plant transfers)
  • Sophisticated warehouse management functions with user-defined logic to support automated material put-away, location letdown and material movement operations
  • Detailed inventory audit file tracking to record inventory transaction information, with flexible inquiry and reporting to support the review and analysis of audit transactions
  • Multiple inventory planning methodologies, including Reorder Point (ROP), Material Requirements Planning (MRP), Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP), Master Production Scheduling (MPS), Drop Shipments, and Sales Order Discrete
  • Integrated forecasting methodologies based on product sales and/or historical material usage models
  • Summary and detailed inventory reporting to help manage inventory shortages as well as excess inventory situations

Frontier iInventory supports:

  • A Java™-based, IBM WebSphere development environment that can be deployed on any standard web server and utilizes an Application Program Interface (API) layer to leverage Frontier ERP-based application program logic and data
  • Inventory Audit File – Inquiry into historical inventory transactions supporting multiple inquiry prompts, summary and detailed views of the information retrieved, as well as integrated drill-downs into transaction-level details
  • Overall Inventory Availability – Inquiry into summarized, time-phased inventory requirements, replenishments and availability, supporting flexible buckets (i.e., daily, weekly, monthly) and date ranges, as well as integrated drill-downs into sales, production, plant transfer and purchase order-level details
  • Manufacturing Inventory Availability – Inquiry into summarized inventory requirements, replenishments and availability for exploded component parts based on the Bill of Material definition, supporting integrated drill-downs into detailed component availability
