Barcode Tracking Simplified for Make-to-Order Manufacturers 

Listed in: Logistics IT, Materials Handling

Make-to-order manufacturers typically make a limited number of basic products, but each one may have different options. If manufacturers assign a different part number to each product made – which may have many different dimensions, colors, or other options – then they can end up with many thousands of part numbers. This whitepaper explores an alternative approach: To assign a smaller number of "product line" part numbers, and then to track attributes such as width, length, color and other options on an item or container basis. This not only makes it easier to track raw, work-in-process and finished goods inventory, but also makes it easier to do cost comparisons for like jobs and to integrate with ERP and accounting systems.

Work-in-Process Tracking of Materials with Different Widths and Lengths

Listed in: Barcode/RFID, Materials Handling

A big issue for many manufacturers is how to use bar codes to track materials with different lengths and widths. For example, a manufacturer may buy 10 sheets of material that measure 4 x 8 feet, then use 3.5 sheets to make a batch of products. They return the leftover 4 x 4 sheet to stock, and use it again on subsequent jobs. Over time, the manufacturer accumulates many off-cuts of different sizes. If a manufacturer assigns a separate part number to each size of the same material, then it quickly ends up with thousands of part numbers. Find the solution by downloading this free whitepaper today.
