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.
Watch our Manufacturing Success Story:
VSI was able to save over 33 hours per month by implementing Tablets and Scanners for Component Tracking:
Screen Shots from Component Tracking Program:
Touch screen on the tablet is used to select an option.
Scanner is used to scan barcodes for Work Order Number, Component Item and Lot #. Quantity can be changed with a pop up, on-screen keypad.
If all required Components on the Work Order are not picked and scanned, the program will prompt the user to pick and scan the additional components.
