Datatex software is specifically designed to improve your business flow, while cutting costs and improving productivity.
Thanks to a system that provides constant feedback and real-time control, every step of the process can be carefully monitored to reduce waste and downtime.
The process begins when a Customer Service Representative enters an order.
The CSR has immediate access to information regarding the status of all orders currently in the system.
Once the order receives all of its approvals, it is ready to be scheduled.
The Gantt chart is sequenced by the machines with the best fit being first.
In addition, the previously scheduled jobs are color-coded based on the compatibility to the new order, thereby reducing setup time.
Suppliers electronically send an Advanced Ship Notice.
This is loaded into the system and can be received by scanning the individual cases or approving the ASN manually.
Next, the forklift driver signs in, a function that can also be accomplished with a handheld device.
The cases are then moved from the warehouse to the conveyor.
The buggy is moved onto the scale, where the RFID antenna recognizes the RFID tag on the buggy.
Both the weight and the buggy RFID number are then transferred to the computer where the transaction is recorded and the buggy ticket is printed.
Based on the schedule, the system knows at which machine specific production orders are being processed.
Once the buggy is associated with the appropriate production order, the RFID antenna can give an indication when the buggy is brought to the machine.
This prevents the buggy from being taken to the wrong station.
Finally, a shipment is prepared using labels printed directly from the system, and a forklift operator is advised as to which pallets to retrieve and to which dock door they should be taken.
From the customer, through the manufacturing process, to shipping and back to the customer again, Datatex software streamlines and simplifies your business.
With Datatex, you'll cut costs, save time and improve productivity, while ensuring a place for your business in the always competitive industrial world.
