Package view in the program. The planks are put in layers and each layer is ascribed a photo. Thanks to that, it can be easily checked if the planks have been entered correctly – just check the number of layers.
Photos of layers. An illustratory photo of a layer from an IP camera. The quality of the photo is good enough to easily evaluate the class and quality of the material. The view reflects the real color and shape of timber.
A label printer. The program allows for label printing by thermal transfer. The print is resistant to water, high temperatures (drying chambers), and other atmospheric conditions. A bar code can also be printed, which minimizes the risk of mistake when selling packages. The printout can be customised – a logo of company’s references can be added. The labels can be selfadhesive – but the „strong glue” we use is applicable only on dry timber. To label wet material, a stapler needs to be used.
The measurements of unedged timber can be also entered with data collectors. They are resistant, the keyboard is convenient and the battery durable. A small screen allows for entering the planks WITHOUT DIVIDING THEM INTO LAYERS; to enter planks we use a sequence of numbers (e.g.34321) and entering one number means a change of a sorter (e.g. 1, 2 or 3).
The program allows for selling INDIVIDUAL PLANKS from a package. It can be best handled from an industrial tablet. When adding the planks, the seller has information about their mass and value. The planks are simultaneously removed from a package and added to an order.
The list of clients with assigned price lists, classes, and measurements. Selling trimmed sawn timber often means complicated price behaviour. Each size and class has a different price for different clients. The price base often contains several dozens of items. Once established price base allows for fast generating the price and class lists.
Conclusions and printouts. WOODBASE system manages many types of printouts – e.g. a list of many packages, orders or deliveries. An often used option is summing up the number of sorted timber for each worker. When summing up e.g. the delivery of material, we have a ready document or a chart with calculated totals of mass and amout, filtered by the length, thickness, class, etc.
