Barcode Scanning & Mobile Forms For Work In Progress Tracking

Using Barcode / QR Code Scanning And Mobile Forms For Tracking Assemblies & Work In Progress

For custom manufacturing, every project consists of creating multi-level assemblies out of parts, raw materials and sub-assemblies. As you put an assembly together, you need to track parts and materials that were used, as well as the status and progress of the project. QR Inventory allows you to manage inventory and track work in progress efficiently in real time. Employees use mobile devices (smartphones or tablets) as barcode scanners and mobile computers to track and document each step of the production process: used inventory, lot numbers, what was done and production details. As they scan in parts and materials to be added to the assembly, inventory stock is adjusted automatically. Collected data are submitted to a centralized cloud location and are instantly available to all authorized employees.

Track Inventory, Raw Materials & Finished Goods With Barcode / QR Code Scanning

  • Use smartphone and barcode / QR code scanning to keep track of raw materials that you purchase, created assemblies and sub-assemblies.
  • Generate and print QR code labels using QR Inventory built-in QR code generation tool, or use existing barcode labels if applicable.
  • Label and scan materials in as you receive them in the warehouse. Indicate where in the warehouse inventory is stored.
  • Get accurate real time reports on raw materials and finished goods stock and locations.
  • Scan inventory as you build assemblies and sub-assemblies - as you do, inventory and assemblies stock is automatically adjusted.
  • Account for the parts and materials used for each project.

Create Multi-Level Assemblies

  • Combine inventory items to create assemblies. Each lower level assembly can be included in the higher level assembly, producing multi-level assemblies.
  • Track assemblies and sub-assemblies in the same manner as the regular inventory items: scan QR code on the assembly to track its location and quantity.
  • As you create assemblies and sub-assemblies from the inventory items, inventory and assemblies stock is automatically adjusted.
  • Calculate how many assemblies you can produce from inventory on hand.
  • Create a list of parts and materials that you need to order and / or manufacture to produce a given number of assemblies.

Track Assemblies & Work In Progress

  • Scan QR code labels on the inventory and assets as you install them to build a custom project.
  • Use mobile forms to document every step of the project: project status, production details, etc.
  • Define what data do you want to keep track of for each project step via a web dashboard.
  • Track work in progress: project status, what is installed on the assembly, when, by whom, production details.
  • Track installed components by part number, lot number or by serial number. Trace all installed components back to their origin.
  • Track assemblies after they leave your shop: shipment to the customers, delivery, warranty service, maintenance and repairs.
  • Check assembly details by scanning QR code label with a smartphone.
