With the aid of the CRIBMATE II mobile barcode scanner and integrated software, a CRIBWARE operator can perform all crib functions in an efficient manner:
- Check out/check in of items, tools, and other supplies
- Receiving of purchased items
- Physical inventory counting
To perform a remote check out/in (issue and return), an operator scans the barcode and enters the quantity checked out as the tools are issued to the employee, job, operation, department, machine, work order, task or asset.
Remote receiving of inventory allows the operator using the CRIBMATE II to receive inventory into the CRIBWARE system while out on the shop floor, at the loading dock, or in a central receiving area. This flexibility reduces the transportation of tooling inventory and decreases receiving data entry time.
The physical inventory function enables quick and accurate system setup, cycle counting data collection, and periodic physical inventory and auditing. By simply scanning a barcode and entering the quantity of an item, the operator can collect data on several hundred items, and then upload the quantities into the CRIBWARE database.
The rugged industrial barcode scanner uses integrated imaging or laser scanner technology that reads labels up to 15 inches away, is reliable with no moving parts, and has 52 keys and a large display.
