Manufacturing Data Capture Features:

  • Material Movement: Scan barcodes to move materials to production orders, through the entire production process, and into finished goods inventory when the job is complete. Automated transactions update inventory and work in process (WIP) in real-time.
  • Labour Entry and Time Tracking: Clock-in to start production order operations and clock-out to report production quantities and automatically capture time for labour transactions. The system automatically calculates the duration of the transaction and posts labour to the production order and WIP.
  • Mobile Compatibility: Flexible options for personal mobile iPhone/iOS and Android devices, as well as shared terminal scanners with internet connections.

“For us, the power of the ERP system is in the WMS and shop floor data collection, the inventory management and the ability to deliver to a customer and to get things right.”

Material Movement

Scan production tickets to move materials to production orders, downstream production operations, and into finished goods inventory when production is completed. Default material requirements from the production order and bill of material can be used to expedite transaction entry.

Clock-In / Clock-Out

Clock-in to start production order operations and clock-out to report production quantities and automatically capture time for labour transactions.

Supervisor Review

Scanned transactions can optionally be reviewed by supervisors facilitating data correction before posting to the database.

Mobile Compatibility

Access Manufacturing Data Collection on individual iPhone/iOS or Android devices or use shared terminals connected to barcode scanners compatible with internet applications.

Default Settings

Set defaults for automated data capture transactions, such as setting the default order type for automated scans; using the required quantity of materials as defined in the production ticket bill of materials for move transactions; mandatory location selection for material transactions; confirmation by line; use default warehouse; use default auto-generated lot or serial numbers; use default expiration date; and more.

Optional User-Defined Labels

Use Manufacturing Data Collection with connected label software to create 2D or 3D labels in multiple sizes and orientations containing part numbers, lot and serial details, expiration dates, and more.

Device Hub

Simplify production order ticket printing with automation schedules and predefined printer settings with the Acumatica Device Hub service.
