WIP-IT is a Work-In-Progress tracking, or Job Tracking system designed for SMEs and small businesses. The system uses barcode technology and shop floor data collection terminals to enable you to scan products as they pass through each step of the manufacturing process, giving you vital, real time data such as their locations in the workshop and the tasks performed on them.
Work-In-Progress tracking, or WIP tracking, refers to the tracking of a Job or Works Order through the manufacturing process. In a WIP system, each item is tracked uniquely as it is fabricated, manufactured or processed. There are normally several steps to the manufacturing process and at each stage the item, or its Works Order sheet will be scanned and the required actions recorded. This process provides a very accurate record of the items journey through assembly to finished product. With this information you also have a line of accountability when there are defects or production issues.
