In any manufacturing setting, efficiency is key to ensuring that products are made quickly and correctly. One way to improve efficiency on the shop floor is to integrate barcodes into the manufacturing process. The barcode system integrated with our MV2 Manufacturing Execution System (MES) can transform your shop floor. There are multiple benefits of having a proper barcode system such as better inventory tracking, improved accuracy, and reduced costs. We go into detail on these below.
Better inventory tracking
In any manufacturing facility, there are many moving parts. To keep track of inventory and ensure that production is running smoothly, it is important to have a robust system in place for tracking materials. Barcode integration is one way to improve efficiency on the shop floor.
The MV2 inventory application allows users to track inventory levels quickly and easily with barcode systems. MV2 ensures reliability with both scanning and data storing capabilities. The information can be used to order new supplies as needed, preventing production delays. This data also helps material managers with demand forecasting, production planning, and much more. By streamlining the process of tracking materials, barcode integration can help to improve efficiency on the shop floor.
Manual data collection methods are tedious, time-consuming, and prone to human error. By using MV2 barcode scanning capabilities, workers can quickly and easily scan to get the necessary information for each step of the manufacturing process. This helps to eliminate errors and ensures that everyone is working with the most up-to-date information. In addition, barcodes can be used to track production progress, allowing managers to find bottlenecks and make changes accordingly.
As workers become more productive and efficient, companies will save money. When barcodes are implemented, they can reduce costs associated with errors, delays, and manual data entry. MV2 has a robust data collection system, which does not rely on manual efforts. The result is a better view of inventory through easy-to-read dashboards. Companies can use these dashboards to their advantage to optimize their stock. MV2’s barcode tracking and routing abilities allow a company to switch their manufacturing process to a lean approach, which can be prohibitively difficult using manual methods. These efforts eliminate scrap, speed up production, and reduce overall costs.
By leveraging the power of barcodes with MV2 software, manufacturers can take their shop floor efficiency to the next level. MV2 allows for better visibility, better execution, and better performance of your supply chains.
