Replenish Inventory By Work Order

From http://www.stdtime.com This video describes the process of automatically creating work orders to replenish or rebuild inventory items when their stock drops below certain levels. Let’s assume that we have inventory items that we use in production and we build those inventory items inhouse. We want a work order to tell us to build them and we want those work orders to be automatically created when the stock levels drop.

We’re going start with a template here that has a set of tasks. You can see them linked together here in the Gantt Chart, that would represent the steps necessary to build these inventory items. So, let’s see how we would use this template to create a new work order.

I’m going to go to the Tools menu, choose Inventory and Bill of Materials. For this example, I’m going to use Metal rack, you can see this is actually a bill of materials with subitems. There are 1,000 in stock and I’ve told it to kick off a new work order when we reach 999. One more of these and we’re going to create a new work order based on this template.

We could actually replenish or reorder using a script; maybe automatically purchase things over the Internet but in this case we’re just kick off a new work order based on this template. Let’s close out of this and see how that works. I’m going to go into the F4 window and scan Metal rack to deduct one from inventory. I’ve done that you can see Metal rack was subtracted from inventory and in this case an expense was also added to document that. If I go over to the Expenses tab you can see that record here that occurred that this date and time. And when I go over to the Inventory folder under Projects, I see that there is a new project, or work order, named Metal rack-1001. It has those tasks or steps needed to rebuild or replenish stock.

The nice thing is I got an email telling me that this occurred and to look for a new project by the name Metal rack-1001. Now employees can go off, build those items and then replenish inventory. Again, if we go back over to Tools, Inventory Bill of materials, click on the Metal rack, we can see the quantity in stock has dropped to 999. They’re going to go off and build 450 of these and they’re going to replenish the stock based on that.

This new project was automatically created to rebuild or replenish inventory.

Barcode Scanners for Manufacturing

From http://www.stdtime.com/barcode.htm. I have been asked several times what type of barcode scanner can be used with Standard Time® when scanning time and materials on the shop floor for manufacturing and other purposes. I’m going to demonstrate an entry level barcode scanner that can be bought off of Amazon for anywhere from $20-$40. This is what you get when you go out there and type in barcode scanner and click on the first one.

What we’ve got here is a simple little scanner with a cradle. I’ve got it connected to an inexpensive tablet, which you can also buy on Amazon, through a USB hub. You really don’t need the keyboard and mouse although you can see the mouse here.

Presumably the employees would walk up to this and scan their user name to start. You can see BC accepts that, ignore the cartoon character; that’s a background screen on BC which you can replace. They would then scan the work order that they are working on. I’m passing it under the barcode scanner.

You might consider bolting these down or making them so that they can’t be handled. Because any time that you handle inexpensive equipment like this, you’re going to break it. And these are not going to last long. They are entry level items.

Next thing they might scan would be a task. That is enough to start the timer; you can see that BC has accepted that and the timer has started. That has put a new time entry into Standard Time; the employee is then off working on their job. They can then come back and stop that timer.

The thing I wanted to demonstrate is this entry level barcode scanner. Really not a bad little unit; I have used several of these and they do last quite a long time. They are not ruggedized for manufacturing so they will get you started. But you’ll want to upgrade to better units in the future. Hopefully this helps and gives you an idea of what type of scanner to buy. Really any scanner will work with Standard Time.
