The reason behind introducing new Handheld
Fast order processing and delivery have been vitally important for Barton Glass and a barcode system was introduced for handling materials, products in process, finished products and delivery service by Barton Glass.
Barcodes are attached on panes of glass products to identify each order. Scanning the barcode takes place at each production process but there was no correlation between the purchase order and trolley which carries both glasses in process and finished goods.
Therefore tracking and tracing the purchase order became very difficult when one purchase order should be split into several types of products involving different production processes and using several trollies. For this reason, Barton Glass needed to improve the process of handling trollies, glass materials and finished products.
Finally top management made a decision to install a new tracking system to solve the problems in the production and delivery process, and Casio DT-X200 rugged terminals were chosen.
