Job Shop Inventory Management With Barcode Scanning

Give shop floor and warehouse employees a tool to record inventory transactions on the spot, at the time a transaction is taking place. Whenever you receive inventory in the job shop, store inventory and use inventory for a work order, shop floor employees can record this inventory transaction instantly on a smartphone using QR Inventory mobile application. Use smartphones for barcode scanning, or attached bluetooth barcode scanner for the faster inventory processing. Record additional information on the inventory transaction (such as project number, client, job number, etc.) on a smartphone, and use recorded information in the inventory reports to filter and combine inventory data the way you need. You define what information to collect for each inventory transaction via an admin web dashboard, and job shop employees will have the correct digital form on their smartphones to fill out.

Since smartphones are so easy to carry around and your employees always have them in their pocket, there are no delays in inventory updates - each inventory transaction is recorded at the time it takes place. As a result, all stakeholders have an accurate up-to-the minute inventory reports on the stock inventory, WIP inventory and finished products inventory.

Job Shop Inventory Software With Mobile Data Collection

Use digital mobile forms in QR Inventory software for all required job shop inventory and WIP related paperwork. Create mobile forms for the job shop inventory and work order data collection via an admin web dashboard. Create all forms that you may neeed: inspection checklists, quality control forms, safety forms, time tracking forms, etc., and your employees will access them on a smartphone by scanning a QR code / barcode. Job shop employees can fill out the mobile form on a smartphone, take photos if applicable, collect electronic signature, and submit filled out digital form to a backend cloud job shop inventory software. Create a PDF report that includes collected data, photos and signature, and e-mail it from a smartphone to the selected e-mail addresses.

Administrator can access completed job shop mobile forms via a QR Inventory software web dashboard, and edit it or fill out an "office only" part of the forms if necessary. Completed mobile forms are stored in a centralized cloud location, and can be accessed on demand by the authorized employees from anywhere. Use multiple search filters to find required records fast.

Job Shop WIP Software: Track Work In Progress From Start To Finish

Track WIP inventory and custom manufacturing production process on the shop floor using a smartphone and QR Inventory mobile application for barcode scanning and data entry. Create custom workflow(s) for your job shop production process via the web interface, define and provide description for each step, and link custom mobile forms to the production process steps.

Shop floor employees access work order status and everything that was done up-to-date by scanning a QR code / barcode label with a smartphone or tablet. They can record used inventory, fill out mobile form(s) that still need to be filled out for the current step, and move a work order to the next step. This action optionally can trigger an automatic email alert.

Job shop administrators / office employees can check WIP inventory, live status of all work orders in progress, and up-to-date production history via the QR Inventory software web dashboard / reports. They can also pull out and review the detailed history of all completed work orders.

BOM Inventory And Assemblies Tracking

Track building of assemblies using a smartphone and QR Inventory mobile application for barcode scanning. Using bill of materials / assemblies and kits module of QR Inventory software, you can:

  • Create bill of materials (BOM) from your parts and inventory for the generic assemblies and sub-assemblies.
  • Create a generic BOM list for the serialized assemblies. Build assemblies against the generic BOM list by scanning lot number / serial number of used inventory, parts and components.
  • Calculate how many assemblies you can build from the on hand inventory, and create a list of inventory that you need to order for building a specified number of assemblies.
  • Build multi-level assemblies, generic and serialized.
  • Track building of assemblies on the shop floor using a smartphone for the barcode scanning and data recording. As assemblies are built, used inventory automatically subtracted from the inventory, and finished assemblies are added.
  • Once created, assemblies can be tracked like any other inventory item - you can track assemblies completion, storage, delivery to the end customer, and post production maintenance using barcode scanning and mobile forms.
  • Build unique on-demand or serialized assemblies, and keep track of serial numbers / batch number of the materials used in each assembly for the complete traceability.
  • Track work in progress, used inventory and status of each serialized assembly.
  • Track serialized assemblies post production - warranty, maintenance, repairs and service after the order is delivered to the customer.

Job Shop Inventory Traceability And Quality Control

Track job shop inventory by lot number or serial number for inventory traceability. Record lot numbers of inventory that was used for each serialized assembly. Scan in inventory lot numbers instead of entering them manually.

Find which assembly(ies) included a component with a specific lot number / serial number, and where these assemblies were shipped. Access the complete history of each inventory batch, from the time you received it from a vendor or produced internally, to the time it was used in a project or installed on an assembly.
