The BellHawk Online Job and Materials Tracking System (BOL-JMTS) tracks the transformation of raw materials into finished products through a sequence of operations.
BOL-JMTS integrates the capabilities of the BellHawk Online WIPS (Work-in-Process Tracking System) and BITS (Barcode Inventory Tracking System) plus adds the ability to track the materials consumed and produced on each work order operation as well as tracking work-in-process materials.
BOL-JMTS includes the ability to specify Bills of Materials (BOMs), recipes, or formulas for each intermediate and finished product and then use these to generate work orders to make a specified quantity of each product.
The Work Order BOMs, generated from the stored product BOMs, are then used to warn users if they are about to use the wrong materials for a job.
JMTS is a low-cost and easy-to-use solution for those organizations that wish to track the flow of materials through their manufacturing operations as well as the labor consumed on each job.
JMTS can track the cost of making products by incrementally adding up all the raw materials and labor time required. If it is required to include the cost of machine time, then the BellHawk Online Manufacturing Execution System (MES) should be used.
JMTS is capable of tracking much more complex manufacturing operations than a simple WIPS system, which simply tracks batches of material through operations. JMTS can track work-in-process materials flow from one operation to another, split batches, scrap and rework as well as to track both labor and materials costs in making products.
JMTS can also track the manufacture of complex products, made from many components and sub-assemblies. Please click on this link to see the Technical Note on the Manufacture of Complex Assemblies.
Where the capabilities of a full Manufacturing Execution System (MES), with warehouse management, scheduling, and materials planning are required then the use of the BellHawk Online BOL-MES System is recommended
The JMTS system uses barcode and mobile computer technology to capture data. Its capabilities include:
