The SPEDE WIP Operations Traceability function controls and tracks the flow of serialized WIP containers to ensure the correct sequencing of operations is followed. SPEDE checks the correctness at issue to prevent sequencing errors. For easier tracking, the same serial number can be used throughout each operation when possible.
WIP Traceability Functions include:
For some applications, including when WIP containers 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 transferred to or received into the warehouse, the operator can scan the Beacon ID to associate it to the WIP Container ID, and then scan/ enter additional data regarding the WIP if desired, to complete the Receipt transaction. The SPEDE Locator App records the Receipt.
At Putaway - crane-mounted distance lasers identify the XY or XYZ location where the container is putaway and SPEDE records the precise location.
Every time the container is moved, the Beacon will transmit its ID to SPEDE and the new location will be automatically recorded.
At Picking /Issuing, the operator simply enters the search criteria for the desired container. SPEDE displays the specific location of the desired container. Distance lasers on the crane verify the crane is at the correct location, and SPEDE confirms the desired container ID is being picked.
The SPEDE Locator database is instantly updated with the transaction.
