Barcode Overview

Our software is designed to utilize any barcode reader which emulates keyboard strikes (i.e. a wedge type device). IndySoft has no personal preference or development relationship with any barcode device vendor and thus, remains neutral on device selection. We have seen success on wireless, USB and 5 pin/PS2 barcode devices designed for use with the Windows operating system. Batch operation scanners may require additional assistance through the IndySoft services group to configure.

The integrated print template generator can create barcodes from database fields or on-the-fly generated text. Most often, barcodes are generated for and on, calibration certificates, device stickers, employee id tags, work orders and recall notices. Any printable document generated from within the software has access to the barcode printing capabilities.

Automation Features

The following actions can be automated using barcode techniques.

  • From the main screen, asset records can be called by barcode.
  • Any event (check-in, out, calibration, receive, ship, etc) can have an associated barcode and thus, the event be launched from a barcode. An example of this would be work to perform for an asset on a work order sheet

The following fields can be filled in via barcodes during execution of an event. It should be noted that the system attempts to discern a vendor from an employee or department, etc. and automatically fills in the proper field based on what was scanned:

  • Equipment
  • Employee
  • Part/Op (tooling only) Vendor
  • Department
  • Location (Crib)
  • Sub-Location (Bin)
  • Machine
  • Event Condition
  • Completed State
  • Result (pass/fail)
  • User Fields 1-5
  • Cert Type
  • Temp Type
  • Work Order Number
  • Equip Condition
  • Event Serial ID
  • Event Kit ID

The following trigger actions (buttons) can be automated through swiping a barcode.

  • Cancel
  • Next
  • Previous
  • Finish

While not an intentional design, as the barcode device simply acts as a keyboard wedge scanning of any barcode which results in ASCII text can fill any field in the product with the corresponding value where required
