FACTIVITY allows the tracking of individual production quantities associated together as a WIP Lot. This unique ID can be created on demand or input from some external production planning system. The ID has its own set of operational steps each with its own start and stop time.
Operators, machines and materials are tracked against this WIP Lot with a time stamp for each recorded production quantity.
Raw materials and their associated numbers used in the job are tracked to each ID and can include:
- One unique material from the BOM
- Several materials that require tracking
- All the materials on the Bill of Material or Recipe
- By Inventory location
- By lot of material
- By serial number
- By heat number
FACTIVITY can create unique lot numbers with pre-set prefixes or suffixes. as required. along with customer specific information which can be added to part labels. Labels can be printed on demand as product is produced to eliminate paper handling and mislabeling of parts.
