Real-Time Shop Floor Control for the Apparel Industry

Shop Floor Control and piecework payroll system is based on inexpensive, off-the-shelf, Wi-Fi enabled Android Tablets and is simple to learn, deploy and operate. Our software suite includes a bundle tracking system. It was co-developed with sewn products manufacturing customers and is now a shop floor system that satisfies the software requirements of large and small manufacturing companies.

From WIP tracking through Piecework Payroll and all of the HR issues associated with a sewn products manufacturing company are available with software modules from Byte’s ERP Software Suite.

Simple to deploy, the system operates over standard Wi-Fi protocol and requires no network wiring or unusual proprietary hardware. Deploy and train in days rather than weeks. The Android Tablets have an app that keeps the camera on so that passing a Bundle tag with a QR code in front of it, records the bundle number. The tablet itself has an ID setup in Byte to Identify which operation is being performed at that station and the operator logs into the tablet in order to credit the work to the right operators. Each of the transactions is time stamped to allow for efficiency and pay calculations. Using this advanced technology, operators are able to quickly log in or perform routine functions simply by scanning their employee badge. The ability to automate common tasks for both operators and supervisors adds efficiency to the manufacturing process.
