Our clientele is always looking to gain more insight into the efficiency of their overall production. WIP Tracker is enabling folding carton manufacturers to do that with increased visibility, traceability, and efficiency.

Workpack Solutions, a Michigan-based ERP software provider and consulting group, announced today the release of a new tracking technology for manufacturers in the printed packaging and food production industries. The Work In Progress (WIP) Tracker allows manufacturers to access more data points of their production, and bring them together in one place, that were not integrated prior to the product’s innovation.

“Our clientele is always looking to gain more insight into the efficiency of their overall production,” said Douglas Scranton, Senior Software Engineer at Workpack Solutions. “WIP Tracker is enabling folding carton manufacturers to do that with increased visibility, traceability, and efficiency which allows them to now see and track details of jobs at any specific point in time down to the second. And the best part is that it call all be accessed remotely from your smart phone.”

The WIP Tracker provides increased visibility of a production such as the number of sheets or pieces a machine is running, operator time, run waste and other relative data. This hardware was developed to improve the current problem involving traceability within production facilities and pulling it all into one dashboard.

Some of the features the new technology includes are:

  •     Visibility - from smartphones and mobile devices as well as live dashboards to access machine speeds and current statuses.
  •     Traceability of various materials, machines and staff.
  •     Efficiency of the overall equipment with analytics, reporting and the ability to show operator performances.
  •     Details so precise it provides the exact material roll any given product originated from.

“Companies now have a technology solution that can provide information about their production process,” said Scranton. “Manufactures have never been able to track and collect this much important data before and all in one place and see it mobile. This makes the operation run much smoother.”

The WIP Tracker ties into Workpack Solutions product line of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) products. ERP products offered by Workpack include Carton ERP, Carton Works, Carton Connect, Food Pack ERP and now the WIP Tracker.
