Katana Shop Floor Control (SFC) app is a mobile-friendly web-based application for the production team on the shop floor for managing their tasks.

It provides value to the managers and the shop floor team:

  • Clear task list for each production employee.
  • Live production status updates from the shop floor to Katana MRP site. The SFC app is directly linked to the Katana MRP site and the data is in live sync.
  • You can go paperless - no need to print Manufacturing Orders anymore.
  • The production team can focus on their tasks without access to any other sections in Katana.


SFC app users are called Operators in Katana. You can add Operators to your Katana account by inviting them to your team on the Katana MRP site. Read more here

Each Operator has a dedicated account and a task list. All Production Operations that are related to open Manufacturing Orders and that have been assigned to an Operator appear in the SFC app for the Operator. Read more about assigning tasks in Katana MRP and managing tasks in the SFC app

An Operator has restricted access. The Operator cannot access the full Katana MRP site but only to the relevant tasks list in the SFC app. The tasks accessed by the Operator do not have any cost or price-related information - you can track this on Katana MRP site.

The Operator account is not linked to any specific device. You can log in with the Operator account with any device if you have the required codes available. Simultaneous sessions from multiple devices are not allowed. Read more here.
