What is Barcode Tracking

With are specialists in industrial scanning solutions and can support the design and implementation of entire scanning networks. Our experienced team will work with you to develop a tracking / monitoring solution that satisfies your individual business requirements.

Jotika are authorised resellers for many vendors and are therefore able to offer the most flexible and cost effective solutions for our customers.

Gtrak 3 ERP can use barcode scanning to allocate order items to a particular stillage for delivery. The delivery note will be adjusted to only include items from within an order that are being delivered. Once complete, the remaining items are allocated to a stillage at a later time or date and will have a separate delivery note.

The barcode tracking system allows the production process to be monitored in real time. The system can be set up with up to four views per screen, with each PC set up with different default views, which can be modified during operation. Processing instructions for machinery such as spacer saws, double edgers, CNC, benders and sealing lines can be loaded using a hand held barcode reader. This saves inputting time whilst offering maximum efficiency and flexibility on the shop floor. A barcode is printed on the glass label or works order and can be scanned into a batch.

Gtrak3 ERP then outputs a file in the correct format for the machine to read.
Gtrak 3 ERP Barcode Tracking stores information against each machine configured for performance throughput, downtime and benchmarks. This can be reported using standard Gtrak 3 reports, external report generators such as Crystal Reports and data visualising tools (dashboards).
A furnace monitoring tool is also available to provide an onscreen view outlining the performance for a given shift or time period, based upon information collected by the barcode readers. The view includes detailed information on downtime, work time, number of cycles, area, leaves, bed loading and 4mm equivalencies for thicker glass. Labels are scanned as work is passed to the furnace. Reading can be done by batch or by piece which is changeable at any time to suit.

The Gtrak 3 ERP monitoring system is designed to be completely flexible. User configurable processes can be set up to monitor manufacturing processes or production staff. A member of staff can be setup with daily targets and the ‘real time’ graphical view will display targets against throughput.
