Work Order Inventory Management Software: Mobile Work Order Tracking With Barcode Scanning

Efficient real time work order tracking software with inventory management for the custom manufactures. Track work orders through the manufacturing production process in real time using a smartphone for barcode scanning.

When a company produces and tests a product it needs to keep track of the WIP inventory and the work order progress efficiently and accurately. QR Inventory software allows you to do just that. A combination of the mobile application and a cloud software allows you to track WIP inventory and work orders progress on the shop floor with the mobile devices, and access real time inventory and work orders reports via the web dashboard.

  • Manage work orders inventory from receiving to staging areas to use in the work order production.
  • Track work orders progress through the manufacturing production process in real time with mobile devices and barcode / QR code scanning.
  • Track what was done on each work order production step, fill out required forms and transfer work order to the next step by scanning a QR code with a smartphone.
  • Track work orders inventory by SKU, lot number or serial number.
  • Track serial nmbers of the instruments, equipment and containers used in the work order production.
  • Collect work in progress data and fill out required forms (such as quality control, inspections or product testing forms) on the shop floor using mobile devices.
  • Submit inventory and work order tracking data collected on the mobile devices to the secure cloud in real time.
  • Have all work order related documentation preserved in a secure cloud, easily searchable and accesible on demand.

Work Orders Tracking On The Shop Floor Using Custom Workflows

Create custom workflows for the manufacturing production process via the QR Inventory software web dashboard. Track work orders through the process in real time with the mobile devices (smartphones or tablets). Use mobile devices for the QR code / barcode scanning, data entry and look up.

Create Custom Workflows For Work Orders Tracking

  • Create custom workflows for tracking work orders through the manufacturing production process via the QR Inventory software web interface.
  • Define workflow steps, provide description / instructions for each step to guide shop floor employees through the work order manufacturing process.
  • Optionally create mobile form(s) that need to be filled out on each production process step. Make completion of the mobile forms required or optional.
  • Track work orders process in real time with the mobile devices (iPhones, android phones, android tablets or iPads).
  • Use mobile devices for the QR code / barcode scanning, reviewing and updating work order data and filling out mobile forms.
  • Collected inventory and work order data are saved in a centralized cloud location, so all employees involved in the production process have live access to the work order progress and information.

Work Order Inventory Management And Traceability

Track raw materials and work in progress (WIP) inventory in real time using smartphones for barcode scanning. Track generic and serialized inventory that you are using for the work orders, achieve complete traceability.

Track Generic And Serialized Work Order Inventory With Barcode Scanning

  • Track inventory through the entire manufacturing production process: from receiving inventory to moving to storage and staging areas to inventory use for the work orders production.
  • Track inventory in the warehouse and on the shop floor in real time with barcode / QR code scanning.
  • Use smartphones for the barcode scanning and processing inventory transactins.
  • If you prefer to use hand-held barcode scanners for speed, use barcode scanners attached to the mobile devices and natively integrated into the QR Inventory mobile application.
  • Track work order inventory by SKU, Lot Number or Serial Number.
  • Trace components for each work order back to the origin, achieve complete traceability. Drill down assemblies / product batches through the intermediate products to the original ingredients / raw materials to get a complete list of lots / serial numbers of the components used in each work order.
  • Look up inventory stock and locations, parts and materials specifications instantly on a smartphone by scanning a QR code / barcode.

Tracking Work Order Assemblies Building With BOM

Track the process of putting work order assemblies or product batches together, step by step. Access live work orders status and progress, on the mobile devices and office computers.

Tracking Work In Progress Inventory And Assemblies Building

  • QR Inventory software with BOM - assemblies and kits module allows you to manage bill of materials for generic and serialized assemblies.
  • Use BOM inventory list for assemblies bilding on the shop floor, or build serialized ad hoc assemblies without the list.
  • Build generic and serialized multi-level assemblies. Drill down to review details of all used inventory and components, up to the original ingredients / raw inventory materials.
  • Track building of the work order assemblies in real time by scanning added inventory components with a smartphone. As assemblies are built, used inventory is automatically subtracted from the inventory stock, and completed assemblies are added to the inventory.
  • Once created, assemblies can be tracked like any other inventory item - you can track assemblies quantity and transactions using a smartphone and barcode scanning.
  • Build generic or serialized assemblies. Keep track of the serial numbers / lot numbers of the inventory used in each serialized assembly.
  • Build serialized assemblies against the list of the generic components. Scan added inventory lot number / serial number against the generic BOM inventory list.

Mobile Forms For The Work Orders Documentation

Record all information on the work orders production process on the shop floor using smartphones / tablets and mobile forms. Create custom mobile forms / checklists via the web dashboard, and shop floor employees will be able to fill them out on the smartphones / tablets.

Use Mobile Forms To Record Testing Results, Analysis, Quality Control Checks, And More

  • Create custom mobile forms via the web dashboard: checklists, inspection forms, quality control forms, data recording forms - any kind of forms that you need to track and document a work order production process. If / when you change workflow or a process, update mobile forms as needed.
  • You have a complete control on when specific mobile forms should be completed. Link mobile forms to one or several production process steps or create mobile forms for the discrete business tasks that are not linked to a workflow.
  • Shop floor employees can download and fill out mobile forms / checklists on the mobile devices (smartphones, tablets) as each work order production step is completed.
  • Include clarifications and / or images in the mobile forms to make sure company employees know what to do.
  • Optionally administrators can pre-fill part of the mobile form and push it to the smartphones for completion.
  • Collected work order data are sent to a secure centralized cloud location and are immediately available to all authorized users / devices.
  • Administrators can review submitted mobile forms via a web dashboard. They can further add information or edit the mobile form data if needed.
  • Optionally collect electronic signatures on a smartphone. Create pdf documents with the signature included based on your template. View, print, e-mail psf from the smartphone or using a web dashboard.

Real Time Inventory And Work Order Information Flow

Give everyone involved in the production access to the live work orders progress, stocked and WIP inventory, and completed mobile forms.
