Custom Barcode Quality Control System:
Step 1: Job is created
A manager should login to the Quality Control System and manually key in and update information for each new job. The manager is responsible to login and enter the following data fields:
Number of Units
Once the data has been entered it should populate a spreadsheet style form that is sortable by column. The data should also be printed out and formatted to a label. This label will be affixed to the job/part and travel with the job/part throughout the entirety of the manufacturing process. This label should also contain a barcode which will be used to track data from quality control tests detailed in step 2 and step 3.
(number of units = each job can contain multiple units. For example if manager opens job A1234 and that job has “number of units” = 6 the system will have to record 6 units on the spreadsheet and print 6 labels with 6 separate barcodes. The job numbers should be logged as A1234-1, A1234-2, A1234-3, etc.
Step 2: Quality Control Test 1 (pressure test)
At this point in the manufacturing process we require foreman to perform the first of two quality control test. The pressure test consists of a visual inspection of the unit/job. After the visual inspection we require our foreman to record data based on the findings. The foreman is also held responsible for the test with a time stamp and some sort of digital signature. The following field must be recorded remotely through barcode scanner based on the traveler tag printed in step one. This data must populate the above mentioned “spreadsheet” style form.
Date & Time of Test
Step 3: Quality Control Test 2 (cleaning test)
This is the last step in the quality control process. In this station we require another foreman to enter cleaning data for each unit test. Similar to Step two this foreman is held responsible for the test though date stamp digital signature as well as test data. The following fields are required and must be entered remotely via barcode scanner.
Date & Time of Test
Step 4: Reports
A series of events should automatically be generated after the barcode scan in step 3. A job report form should be printed on a standard form. That same form should be saved in a network file with the job number as the file name.
Step 5: Assign shipping number
The final step in the process is to associate a shipping number with the job number. This number should appear in on the spreadsheet form mentioned in Step1.
Other Comments / Requirements:
-Create a simple customer interface to allow for customers to search for test data.
-At this time we have not purchased barcode scanners and we’re open to hardware -suggestions based on software development.
