Here's what Data Collection for Ross ERP can do for you
Automated Materials Tracking
Radio Frequency (RF) data collection for receipt of raw materials, bin transfers, material picking and shipment confirmation eliminates keyboard data entry.
Improved Accuracy & Productivity
Real-time interaction ensures that configured business rules are not bypassed. Instant visibility boosts data accuracy productivity.
Make Receiving & Inventory Management More Efficient
Receiving operators scan bar-coded vendor shipments to capture the purchase order number, part numbers and quantities. Product detail labels can be automatically generated as needed. Material handling personnel can easily scan parts and locations to perform one- and two-stage transfers, issues, adjustments & returns, update inventories in real time, and eliminate paperwork and manual data entry.
Dispatch data verification is the basis for shipping automation. Dispatch notes can be downloaded to portable terminals to prompt shipping personnel for the items, quantities and locations to select; each data element is validated against the dispatch when scanned.
Provide Real-Time Shop Floor Visibility
By bar-coding the job documents, production personnel can enter labor and stage count data with little or no keyboard entry. Jobs are automatically updated with elapsed labor, machine time, and manufacturing completed quantities.
