Hi all,

I wonder if anyone has come across something that will help me here. Ill need to provide some background, the actual question is at the bottom.

My company essentially builds big steel boxes (up to anywhere around 10m x 10m x 5m), although they can be smaller (2m x 2m x 3m or so)

We build on a project for project basis and currently generate a paper Quality Plan for each unit that tracks through production with the part and is signed off as QC gates are passed.

With the big units, an order is generally only 2 or 3 pcs so its not an issue, but the smaller units can run to 10 to 20pcs per project. The issue we have is that if an order has 20 units, that's 20 sets of documentation that need to be generated and distributed (not to mention maintained) and that's work that keeps us from doing more productive things.

During a brainstorming session recently, while we were fantasising about all our suppliers having ERP system that could have barcodes on a manufacturing plan we would just need to scan (not going to happen, we use a lot of often fairly primitive LCC manufacturers) we thought about storing the progress data centrally on OUR sharepoint system and giving the (globally located) supplier a (cheap) tablet with an app that would be able to wirelessly call up the project details (possibly using a bar- or QR-code on the unit) and allow them to both determine the current status and register whatever had just been completed. ideally this would register not just quality gates but production progress too.

Has anyone come across an app or even a complete system that does something like this (and please, no "SAP can do this" or similar, I need something small, cheap, lean and standalone)?

Thanks for all input!

Andy
