How to Track the Fabrication Process

 barcode scanning template

Managing and tracking components effectively is a critical part of the fabrication process, so we’ve created a flexible solution that can simplify the tracking of all your components. Whether your items come with pre-existing barcodes or you need to generate and print barcodes, our system is designed to integrate into your existing day-to-day workflow.

Getting Started with Orca Scan

  1. Download the Orca Scan barcode app
  2. Create a new sheet with the Fabrication Tracking Template
  3. Scan existing barcodes or generate and print new ones
  4. Add fields to capture additional information (if needed)
  5. Save the changes

With Orca Scan, your team members can update and track the progress of parts through all different stages of your workflow.

Why Use Orca Scan for Fabrication Tracking?

What if some components don’t have barcodes?

For components that do not have a barcode, you can generate and print barcode labels from the Orca Scan web and mobile applications.

Customisation for Your Fabrication Needs

Our solution is fully customisable, so you can tailor it to track additional details for your specific fabrication process, including material type, dimensions, supplier information, tracking numbers and more.

You can also use triggers to build out bespoke workflows, enhancing the efficiency of your operations. For example, set up a trigger to get notified when your quality assurance tests pass or fail.

Efficient Multi-Site Management

If you need to manage and track components across multiple fabrication sites, then all you need to do is:

  1. Create a sheet using the Fabrication Tracking Template
  2. Add fields to capture additional information (if needed)
  3. Duplicate the sheet, one for each location
  4. Add the relevant users to the correct sheets
  5. Create a view for full visibility of the fabrication processes across all sites into one sheet

Optimising Fabrication with Orca Scan’s History Log

Orca Scan’s history log is essential for having full, long-term visibility over your fabrication process, offering detailed item tracking from receipt to production. This means you can pinpoint inefficiencies, ensure quality control, and adhere to industry standards, making it a vital tool for your operations.
