Cubicool uses TransLution to improve job issuing
Cubicool International is a leading designer and manufacturer of modular packaging refrigeration systems.
Cubicool uses TransLution to improve its job issuing process. Users first scan jobs card to identify the job they are issuing to, then the item that is being issued. TransLution posts the issue in real time to SYSPRO.
Usually, when a user scans an item not allocated to the job they are prevented from continuing the job. In the case of Cubicool the requirement was to first create an allocation for the item on the job in SYSPRO and then to issue the scanned item. This gives the users a great deal of flexibility that is not usually possible from the shop floor.
Cubicool uses the TransLution query function which allows them to scan a barcode at any time, even when they are in the middle of a scanner job. If they scan an item barcode using this function, the system shows how many of this item are on hand and where they can be found. This significantly improves productivity, allowing users to do system queries from the scanner rather than having to go to a central PC for the information.
