The KnarrTek Job Tracking System (JTS) is a low-cost and simple-to-use system that uses barcode scanning to track the work-in-process status of a batch of parts or an individual part through a sequence of work order operations.
JTS captures when work starts and end on each work order operation. JTS also captures the labor expended by individual people or teams on each operation and performs real-time scheduling of operations.
The primary functions of JTS are:
Work Orders for jobs can be quickly setup directly in BellHawk or imported from other systems. These can then be used to create barcoded travelers, which can be scanned to record the progress of the work-order through multiple operations.
Work-in-Process data can be captured using inexpensive shared PCs or Android tablets equipped with corded or Bluetooth cordless scanners scanners to record the labor and progress of work orders.
Reports showing the status of jobs and the history of transactions can be viewed and printed using any device supporting a web-browser. Excel exports for subsequent labor and elapsed time analysis are also available for download on PCs.
The User Defined Parameter option, included with JTS, enables clients to specify additional data items to appear on the traveler for each work order, both in the header and for each operation. It also enables clients to specify additional custom data to be collected at the completion of each operation.
The JTS software also includes a real-time scheduling function which provides shop-floor workers with a dynamically adjusted prioritized list of what they should be working on next. This helps ensure that the most important jobs, and those closest to their delivery date are worked on first.
For those situations where tracking the transformation of materials or tracking of WIP materials is required then clients should use the BellHawk Real-Time Job and Materials Tracking System (JMTS).
