Standard Time® Manufacturing Shop Floor Software

From https://www.strdtime.com If there is one major crisis facing manufacturing managers, owners and shop floor supervisors, it is tracking work orders and employee hours. All the common methods like punch clocks, hand written time sheets, verbal communication and educated guesses fall short. In modern manufacturing they universally lead to delays, cost overruns and even lost jobs.

Thankfully you can now simplify job tracking and employee timesheets. Plus save time by replacing all that nonsense with just barcodes. Just like the ones used in retail. With Standard Time® automation software just scan a few barcode labels to collect all the information needed for your work status, work in progress, employee status and more!

No complicated systems to learn, no misplaced work orders, no problem. With just a few barcode scans Standard Time answers your most pressing questions: Where is my work order now? When can I expect my job completion? What are my employees doing now? Plus, Standard Time displays work in progress right on the shop floor for all employees to see.

It answers questions like: How long do my jobs take? How long do my employees spend on jobs? Am I making any money on my projects? Standard Time is the one simple, inexpensive solution your shop needs to save time, save money, increase accountability and deliver better results for your customers.

Sign up for Standard Time today and see how easy it is to increase your productivity. We’ll even help you get started!

Scan Inventory

From https://www.strdtime.com/barcode.htm Standard Time® is used for more than just tracking time for employees and work orders on the shop floor. Here you see an employee who’s scanning acetylene bottles to track inventory or in this case the quantity of material used on the shop floor. The results of that will be a time stamped record of that usage.

Tracking Inventory and BOMs on the Shop Floor

From https://www.stdtime.com In this video we’ll take a brief look at inventory and bill of materials in Standard Time®. Or scanning materials on the shop-floor. You’ll notice a list of inventory items over here on the left-hand side. You can add new ones by going to this + symbol and adding them manually. Or going to the File menu, choosing Import and bringing them in from another system using the CSV file format.
 
Let’s take a look at some of the commonly used properties over on the right-hand side. Certainly, the name and description are useful as the internal SKU and Vendor Manufacturing SKUs which you can scan on the shop-floor. You may also have an internal Code that you would like to scan. Certainly, the Qty in stock is useful which represents the number of items you have on hand and the level of at which you reorder and how many to reorder each time.
 
You may notice that over on the left-hand side that the inventory items are organized by folder. Consider scrolling down and choosing a folder for each kind of inventory item or use or location within your organization. And giving them an attachment image to display within a bill of material. You notice over on the left-hand side that you have some items with a different icon. This is one of them, this is actually a bill of material. It turns out that this is just and inventory item with subitems. If I click here, you can see the subitems within this bill of material. Including barring sleeve, jacket assy and so on and the quantities of each item.
 
Turns out you can scan both inventory and bill of materials on the shop-floor. Let’s go to the Home (All Views) and choose Scan barcodes. As we said before you can scan the internal SKU Vendor or Manufacturer SKU including the name itself. Or you may have an internal code that you’d like to scan. The results of those scans is normally to deduct from stock when you are consuming them on the shop-floor. But you may also add to stock when you receive them at the receiving dock.
 
You may also want to create a timestamped expense record to document when materials are consumed on the shop-floor. And provide traceability back to the original employee and job and so on. Turns out you can scan several other items related to inventory if you click this little button in the upper left, choose Things to scan on the shop floor. Up pops a webpage and you can scroll down and find more things to scan related to inventory.
 
There’s a very brief overview of inventory and bill of materials in Standard Time.

Tracking Time and Materials on the Shop Floor

From https://www.stdtime.com We’ve talked a lot about time and materials in Standard Time® in other videos. It is in fact the primary purpose of Standard Time. In addition to work order tracking, project management, slotting jobs for production, employee availability and so on. Let’s take a look at the actual time and materials records in Standard Time.
 
We’ll start by going to the Time Logs icon in the Home (All Views). Double click on a record, you see the properties on the right-hand side. Each record has a start/stop time, actual work, sometimes a quantity and those are traceable back to the original employee, project, task and activity and so on. Same sort of thing with Expenses; double click on a record, you see the properties on the right, same sort of thing. You’ve got the time stamp, amount and traceability back to the original employee/client project and so on.
 
How do these records actually get into Standard Time? Well, in the case of Time Logs, you could start by clicking the plus symbol in the upper-left corner and enter a time log manually. Or you could scan project and task barcodes on the shop-floor to start and stop a timer. Or you could enter time directly into the timesheet.
 
Same sort of thing with expenses, you’ve got the plus symbol here to create a new expense record manually. Or scan inventory and expense templates on the shop-floor. You may see these time and expense records organized in the timesheet by Monday-Sunday columns. Or you could view them on a daily bases with the calendar or shown in a chart by time period. Same sort of thing with the expense calendar; shown on a daily bases or on the expense chart by period.
 
Did you notice that each of the views can have a different filter criteria to guard against especially long lists that are useful for no one? In this case I could go to the filter tree, choose a project and then go to a completely different view and choose a different project. Now each of the views is filtered by a different project and has a different list. You’ll also notice that sometimes views are auto filtered. Again, to guard against those exceptionally long list.
 
Consider going out and taking a look at the video on scanning barcodes on the shop-floor to start and stop a timer. And give these plus buttons a try to enter new time and expense records into Standard Time.
