WIP Operations Traceability controls and tracks the flow of serialized WIP containers to ensure the correct sequencing of operations is followed.
For some applications, such as when containers of WIP are temporarily warehoused, it may be most efficient to track the location of the container using the same Bluetooth technology that the SPEDE Locator System uses to track steel coils.
A Bluetooth Beacon, which has a unique ID, is attached to the steel WIP container via magnet.
At Receiving - When the WIP container is received into the warehouse, the operator can scan the Beacon ID to associate it to the WIP Container ID. If necessary, the operator can scan/ enter additional data regarding the WIP unit, to complete the Receipt transaction. The SPEDE Locator App records the Receipt. For easier tracking, the same WIP serial number can be used throughout each WIP operation when possible.
At Putaway - crane-mounted distance lasers identify the XY or XYZ location where the container is putaway, and SPEDE records the location. Each time the container is moved, the Beacon will transmit its ID to SPEDE and the new location will be recorded.
At Picking /Issuing, the operator enters the search criteria for the desired container and SPEDE displays its location. Distance lasers on the crane verify the crane is at the correct location. SPEDE checks the correctness of the WIP ID being picked / issued to prevent sequencing errors.
The SPEDE Locator database is then updated with the transaction.
