MISys has developed two different bar coding systems: MISys Manufacturing Bar Coding and the enhanced MISys Worth Terminal Manager. Both systems are available with the Bar Coding module from MISys, but each requires different hardware which is sold separately.
MISys gives you two options for bar coding.
- Option 1: MISys Manufacturing Bar Coding - Developed primarily for physical inventory counts. The software works with the Worth Data T5000 bar code reader, an offline device which runs small programs on the device itself, and can collect data on the factory floor or warehouse. It must be connected to a host PC where data files can be transferred and imported into MISys Manufacturing in a batch transfer.
- Conduct physical inventory by scanning bar code on shelf or item and enter quantity. - Record stock transfers as they occur.
- Update the time required for operations at various work centers.
- Record bar coded items that need to be assigned and generate new serial and lot numbers.
- Print bar coded lables on standard Avery label stock.
- Generate "Bar code enabled" reports such as Physical Inventory Worksheets, Pick Lists and Travelers to better track items used in production.
Option 2: MISys Worth Terminal Manager
- The MISys Worth Terminal Manager gives production managers and inventory managers more control from the shop floor and the warehouse. It is designed to work with Worth Data's 7000 Series RF Terminal platform connected to a Worth Data Base Station, connecting wirelessly with MISys Manufacturing. Hardware can be purchased directly from Worth Data at www.barcodehq.com.
