System for Stores
|Intelligent terminals with
Alphanumeric LCD display, a numeric 6 digit LED display
and an alphanumeric keyboard are provided in the Stores
section. One or more weigh scales with serial port can
be connected to each terminal. One or more such terminals
are connected to a central PC. A software developed in
Visual basic is run in the PC.
|Whenever a material is received
at stores, the operator enters the raw material code and
the supplier details. Then he has to choose the weigh
scale to be used for weighing the item and register the
weight. The collected information is communicated and
stored in the PC. For every receipt the terminal can generate
LOT No., GRN No., etc. Label slips for every receipt can
also be printed from the terminal.
|As an extension of the system,
the terminal can also allocate storage location for the
raw material received, based on predefined rack locations.
In such a case the raw material issue to the production
process is also possible through the system which ensures
consumption of the oldest stock first. (FIFO)
|The receipt and consumption
of raw materials can be totally brought under control
by using the system. System finds its application wherever
raw materials are purchased and consumed based on weight.
