OAT Work-in-Process Tracking

A leading Aerospace Manufacturer worked with OAT to track Work-in-Process for composite parts , from managing out time of composite materials in storage freezers to tracking component manufacturing through the layup and curing process.

Work in Process (WIP) Tracking provides an accurate and complete record of components and assemblies as they come together into a finished product. EPC data collected as items move through the production stages is linked with data from testing and quality control systems to provide a detailed, auditable history of manufacturing activity. This information provides visibility into work-in-process, which would otherwise remain largely hidden from view.

With accurate WIP tracking, labor costs associated with tracking materials and equipment during the assembly process are significantly reduced. In addition, WIP tracking strengthens the audit trail, and enables warranty

Manufacturers see bottom-line results through cost savings in logistics assets investments, reduction in error rates for shipping and receiving, reduction in asset shrinkage, as well as a significant improvement in customer service.
