Procedure Number: 11-122


Summary

This is the section that will include summary of procedure



Procedure

The three programs used to Capture Piece Weights are:

1. Front Scale
2. Rear Scale
3. Audit / Flow Scale - used at audit or at any PC. Op enters UPC to capture piece weight.





1. Front Scale

This program is used at the front of the carousels. Rotates carousel to op entered bin and queues all part_numbers that have not been weighed in last 6 months.

  1. Prompt operator to scan or enter a Location (without hyphens) see Figure 1.
    1. Operator only needs to enter in the Zone, Carousel and Bin value. (i.e. 07104 where 07 = Zone, 1 = Carousel and 04 = bin)


Figure 1:



2. If there are no parts to be weighed in all locations for that specific bin, the Operator will be notified. see Figure 2.
See figure .


Figure 2:



3. If there are parts to be weighed in at least one location for that bin, the Operator will be told the number of items to be weighed.
see Figure 3.


Figure 3:



4. All parts that have not yet been weighed for that bin will be queued
5. DoveTrack will sort presentation of locations in standard round robin sequence
6. The carousel will move to the next location and present that location to the operator. The Location (with hyphens), The Part Number and the Part Description will be displayed at the bottom of the form.
7. The operator will scan or type the location (without hyphens) to confirm correct location was presented.
See figure 4.

Note: The Operator can type ESC into the Scan Location field to exit the program

  • If the incorrect location is scanned or typed, the operator will be notified.




Figure 4.



8. When the correct location is scanned or typed, the operator will be asked to put a single unit if the part in that location on the scale.
9. Once the product is put on the scale, the operator will press ok to the message box.
10. The piece weight will be captured from the attached scale.
See figure 5.

  • If any issues occur in reading of the scale, DoveTrack will notify the operator of the issue.
    See figure 6.

11. When the weight is read correctly, DoveTrack will display the weight and prompt the opertor to perform one of the following tasks:

  • Task Complete
    • Type SF4 (or scan Task Complete barcode) to confirm weight into DoveTrack.
  • To Re-weigh the part
    • Press the Enter key
  • To abort the program
    • Type ESC or scan the Abort label
  • to skip weighing this part
    • Type SF8 or scan the Short/Skip label
      See figure 7.

2. Rear Scale

This program is used at the back of the carousels. It will Rotates and direct operators to weigh part_numbers that have never been weighed.

1. All parts that have not yet been weighed will be queued
2. DoveTrack will sort presentation of locations in standard round robin sequence
3. The carousel will move to the next location and present that location to the operator. The Location (with hyphens), The Part Number and the Part Description will be displayed at the bottom of the form.
4. The operator will scan or type the location (without hyphens) to confirm correct location was presented.
See figure 8.

Note: The Operator can type ESC into the Scan Location field at any time to exit the program
