Automated Product Tracking
Automated Product Tracking Summary
The Automated Product Tracking application monitors product or lot movement via material handling sensors or worker entry. Product location and production counts are available continuously. Production, test, and SPC measurements can be collected for later analysis.
Automated Product Tracking Benefits
Automated Product Tracking Function and Use
Automated product tracking accepts location information from sensors located throughout a plant or from worker entry. Location of individual parts or lots is available for employees and supervisors as well as counts. Each product is tagged by part number and, optionally, serial number. If parts are sorted according to characteristics, an additional “sorted” part number can be associated.
Automated Product Tracking Features
Production is identified by a tracking number, base part number, possibly a sorted part number, line or department identification, pass/fail status and location. Individual production is referred to by the unique tracking number.
Production equipment including assembly, calibration and testing can send measurements of product or process through the product tracking system to be analyzed by SPC or scrap analysis systems.
Product part numbers and optionally serial numbers and production dates can be provided to marking equipment, such as a laser marker, to mark the product after acceptance.
Material handling equipment can be integrated with the product tracking to stop unidentified or rejected material, to provide part numbers to automated test equipment, and to direct intermingled production to the correct packaging equipment.
Production counts by part number and shift and % good/bad (if pass/fail information is provided) are available for display.
