BellHawk RTOPS Barcode Real-Time Operations Tracking System
The BellHawk Real-Time Operations Tracking System (RTOPS) uses license-plate
container tracking methods in combination with barcode scanning and
mobile computing technology to track the receipt and put-away of raw materials,
their transformation into finished products and their packing and shipment to customers.
RTOPS gives managers,
supervisors, staff and customer support personnel a real-time view of the status of their customer orders, inventory,
production work orders, work-in-process, and shipments.
RTOPS integrates the
work-in-process & labor tracking and
production scheduling system, plus barcode inventory tracking
system. RTOPS then adds the ability to track what materials are consumed and
produced by each work order operation. This includes the ability to specify BOMs for each work order operation
and to use these BOMS to prevent mistakes, such as using the wrong materials
for a job.
The use of RTOPS is essential where materials traceability and/or accurate
job costing needs to be performed.
The RTOPS system uses barcode and mobile computer technology to
capture data. Its capabilities include:
Tracks labor and materials expended on operations
Tracks transformation or conversion or assembly of raw materials into finished or intermediate products.
Tracks repair and recycling of equipment and materials.
Tracks batch processing of chemicals, food, beverages, pharmaceuticals and supplements including mixing and
Tracks testing of samples in laboratories as well as the reagents and equipment used in their testing.
Tracks labor and materials costs on Department of Defense and other Government projects.
Tracks the status of work orders, customer orders, and work-in-process as well as raw, intermediate, and finished
goods inventory in real-time.
Tracks status of materials on order from suppliers and being shipped to customers.
Tracks materials shipped to, being processed at, and returned from sub-contractors.
Captures the materials consumed and produced by each operation as well as the labor time used.
Enables users to enter formulas, recipes, BOMs and routes for processing products or these can be imported from other systems.
Tracks scrap and rework as well defect and rework reasons.
Tracks split and combined batches of material in production
Designed for easy data capture by material-handlers and operators who are not computer literate.
