Latitude Tips & Tricks for Manufacturing and Production Tools

June 1, 2016 Rebecca Tonks

Welcome back to “Tips and Tricks for Latitude,” our series of blog posts to help make you a Latitude power user. This week we’re highlighting new tools for our manufacturing and production customers.

One Screen For Everything

Latitude now offers a production order web management screen that gives a one-page view of all information on a particular production order and its status. Many of our customers have production lines or manufacture chemicals; before they ship product to customers, it goes to their internal DC first. They told us that they need a way to track the status of orders across multiple shifts, since most of them run manufacturing facilities 24 hours a day. We had some functionality here before, but now we’ve expanded it to a one-page view that gives the status of the order and all the details the new crew needs to know when they come in to work.

Bonus: Print Item-Specific Documents While Shipping

Here’s a bonus feature that didn’t fit into any of our other blog posts. Latitude can automatically print item-specific documents at shipping. Manufacturer lot information, MSDS, hazmat labels or certification information are common uses. To set this up, follow these steps:

  1. Create a directory in Latitude where electronic copies of your item documents can be stored
  2. Go to Application Setup in Latitude Management Console, click the Other tab, check the box marked Print Item Documents? and enter the path to the documents
  3. Go into System Settings and enable the Print Items Documents at Ship and/or Print Linked Lot Documents at Ship options
  4. Edit the Item master record in Latitude under Documents to specify the document that will print.

That’s all for this week! Be sure to check back soon to learn how a Latitude System Audit can improve your warehouse efficiency. As always, if you have a suggestion for a new Latitude feature or a specific problem you’re trying to solve, please let us know. You can reach our Support Team at 1-888-627-9797.
