The following are demonstration videos on how to use BellHawk Online to solve various inventory and work-in-process tracking problems. You will need to register on our website (with your name and Email) to see these videos, if you have not already registered.
|Barcode Inventory Tracking using BellHawk Online MTS: (19 minutes) In this demonstration video we use the BellHawk Online software to demonstrate the use of barcode scanning and license-plate-number (LPN) tracking methods to record the entry into inventory of bins of material as well as the receipt and put-away of boxes of material. We also demonstrate the packing of multiple items into a box which is then recorded as shipped to a customer. Then we look at some of the screens, Excel exports, and reports that are available to materials managers, as well as how we can adjust inventory as part of cycle counting operations.|
|Simple Work-in-Process Tracking using SPTS: (18 minutes) In this demonstration video we use the BellHawk Online SPTS Simple Production Tracking System to track the manufacture of a batch of 6 knobs. These knobs go through three operations: first cutting and shaping the knobs on a lathe from a round steel bar, second drilling and tapping holes into the door knobs, and third polishing and inspecting the resultant knobs. In this demonstration, we focus on capturing the status of the production batch in real-time and of tracking the amount of labor involved and how long each job step took.|
|Simple Work-in-Process Tracking using MTS: (15 minutes) In this demonstration video we use the BellHawk Online MTS Materials Tracking System to track work-in-process materials for the manufacture of a batch of 6 knobs. These knobs go through three operations: first cutting and shaping the knobs on a lathe from a round steel bar, second drilling and tapping holes into the door knobs, and third polishing and inspecting the resultant knobs. In this demonstration, we focus on capturing the progress of a tote of parts in real-time and of tracking how long each job step took and the wait time between steps.Please note that when this video was produced MTS was referred to as SMTS|
|Using the RT-OPS Real-Time Operations Tracking System to track both Production and Inventory (44 minutes) In this companion demonstration video to the SPTS video, we use BellHawk software to track the manufacture of the same batch of 6 knobs but here we focus on tracking materials. We see how we receive a rod of stainless steel bar stock and then track its conversion into Work-in-Process (WIP) materials. We then track the WIP through further processing and then into its conversion into finished goods and their shipment to customers. We see how WIP is tracked in a reusable tote and how defective parts are recorded as scrap inventory that can be recycled. Finally we look at a variety of reports and Excel exports that can give production managers a real-time view of their operations. Please note that when this video was made RT-OPS was referred to as JMTS, the BellHawk Job and Materials Tracking System.|
Purchase Order (PO) Receiving: (14 minutes)
This video demonstrates how to use the BellHawk Online Purchase Order Receiving Module to enter Purchase Orders (POs) and then how to receive materials, such as electrical connectors and reels of wire, against these Purchase Orders. We then show how to record the put-away of these items into stock room or warehouse locations.
Shipping Order (SO) Receiving:
This video demonstrates how to use the BellHawk Online Ship Order and Pick modules. It starts with a demonstration of how to enter a ship order for a customer order and how to send an acknowledgement. This ship order is then used to generate a barcoded picking sheet, which is used to record the picking, packing, and shipment of the customer order.
Tracking Rolled Materials Converting:
This video demonstrates how to use the BellHawk Online to track the conversion of rolls of material into finished products. It starts with the receipt and put-away of a master roll of aluminum. This is then followed by tracking the slitting of the master roll into narrower rolls and then their conversion into sheets of metal, which are then shipped to a customer. This demonstrates the ability of BellHawk Online to track materials with different widths and lengths using a common part number.
