From http://www.stdtime.com This video answers the question of what to do with product serial numbers when barcoding in Standard Time. You have serial numbers on the products you are manufacturing. They are pre-printed, and permanently stuck onto each unit. Now what do you need to do to start barcoding them? What needs to be set up in Standard Time to use them?
The answer depends on how long you’ll need the barcode labels for time tracking. If you’ll use them for a long time, you should create a project in ST. But if you’ll only use them for hours or days, then consider creating tasks instead.
After you have created projects and tasks to represent the serial numbers, you can begin scanning in ST. Just press the F4 key to open the barcode scanning window. Scan your label and ST will recognize it.
This little program can synchronize your MS Project files with your timesheet without a single click. It is completely automated. No pop-ups, not nags, no user input. It just runs in the background and syncs. What gets sync'd? MS Project tasks come down from MSP and go into the Standard Time database. Employee actual work goes up to the Microsoft Project Task Usage View.
Follow the steps below to use a Microsoft Project add-in to sync with Standard Time®.
The MSP add-in will connect to the Standard Time database and create project tasks that match the MSP project. After matching up all the project tasks, it will send any timesheet hours to MSP. This completes a bidirectional sync between Microsoft Project and ST.
The MSP add-in is a special download. Contact the Scoutwest support department for download instructions. Once downloaded, you'll run a small setup program to install the add-in into MSP.

It is possible to print barcode labels from MS Word. Watch the tutorial below to learn how.
Those labels can then be used to track time in ST. Just scan an employee name, a project name, and a task. The timer will start. Now go perform your task. When finished scan *STOP* to stop the timer.
All these barcode labels can be printed with MS Word. You can lay out a work order with the labels in the corner or bottom. Hand the work order to operators, and they can easily track hours for the job.
Here's a quick overview of the various RFID tags you can use for manufacturing time tracking. Watch the video and let us know how this works for you.
Start and stop a timer with RFID tags on ever product that goes down the assembly line. This video shows you the many different RFID tags that are manufactured for inventory and assembly time tracking. Just stick one on each box and track its time in the shop.
