Component Tracking

Example: Manufacturing Shop Floor
  • As components are pulled for production of a certain work order, bar codes are scanned for the work order number, item number and lot number of the component.
  • This information is stored in a Microsoft Access database that is used for tracking of lot numbers by component and is extremely valuable for any possible recalls.
  • Eliminated manually writing down information, transposing lot numbers and hours of searching through paper copies of work orders.
