Creating a Program

Click the "New Program" button

At a minimum, you'll need to name your program and add a location.

Fleshing out your Program

When you open your new program, it will look like this.

You can click "Add BOM" and select an existing BOM.

You can edit any of the summary fields with a pencil icon.

New feature: Bulk actions through multiple-select

To make it easier to perform actions on multiple line-items, we've enabled multiple-select workflows across Quoting, Purchasing, Stock Lot creation, Shipping, and Allocation.

(1) Quoting

First, select the relevant parts and click the "Request Quotes for X Parts" action button

Next make any Quantity, Need By, and Target Price adjustments. You can also add notes before Creating the official Solicitations.

(2) Purchasing

First, select the relevant parts and click the "Purchase X Parts" action button

The Purchasing workflow will walk you through three steps before you submit your order. In this first step, you can make volume adjustments.

Cofactr enables you to play around with shipping speed and pricing options to select the best option for you.

Then you can choose to ship the items for storage at Cofactr or have the parts sent right to one of your facilities.

Finally, Cofactr will show you a summary of your Order before you officially submit your Order!

(3) Stock lots

First, select the relevant parts and click the "Bulk Create X Stock Lots & Add to Shipment" action button

You'll next need to select an existing Shipment and set the multiple of these parts you'd like to add.

(4) Shipments

First, select the relevant parts and click the "Add X parts to Shipment" action button

Then you can modify the quantities to ship.

(5) Allocations

First, select the relevant parts and click the "Create X Allocations" action button

Adjust the quantities

Then you can calculate the allocations
