Scrap Trakker | Presented by Avista Solutions International Inc.
SCRAP TRAKKER is a turn-key system that includes hardware, software, consulting and training, all designed to help facilities take better control of waste while significantly reducing the costs associated with waste data collection and reporting.
The SCRAP TRAKKER system combines data collection and administrative software with a shop hardened hardware package utilizing touchscreen and barcode technologies. Compared to traditional methods, these components enable the system to collect and report waste data faster, more accurately and with fewer plant resources.
I. Identify and Reduce Waste
SCRAP TRAKKER will integrate with your existing scrap processes and procedures to track the volume of waste in your plant by date, time, shift, type and root cause.
Corrugated facilities nationwide rely on SCRAP TRAKKER to make the scrap collection and reporting process FASTER and more ACCURATE while utilizing FEWER PLANT RESOURCES. Here are five ways SCRAP TRAKKER immediately improves the "old way" of collecting and tracking scrap:
- Touch Screen /Bar Code ID - automated identification eliminates human error
- Complete, Comprehensive Data - identify waste type, location and shift
- Consistent Real Time Reports – react faster to accurate, hard data
- Automatic Bale Tags and Bill of Lading - create outgoing documentation, instantly
- Historical View of Waste Performance – build knowledge over time and make better long term decisions

III. Employ Leaner Processes
Increasing productivity creates a stronger bottom line, higher quality products and services, faster turnaround times and more satisfied employees. By employing “Lean Manufacturing” concepts, a manufacturer can significantly increase productivity. A critical component of Lean Manufacturing is the unending quest to eliminate waste and variability from business processes.
Permanent waste reduction starts with timely accurate waste reporting. Managers need to know how much scrap was created, by location and type (i.e. warp, peel, etc.) to effectively address the cause and improve the conditions that generate the waste.
SCRAP TRAKKER utilizes touch screen and bar code technologies to allow shop personnel to collect all of the information needed, quickly and effortlessly, at the time the waste is weighed. The data is captured electronically and therefore there is no need for additional clerical or other resources to report comprehensive and accurate waste information.
SCRAP TRAKKER generates real-time, detailed waste reports whenever you want them and without having to rely on assistance from other departments. Your managers get the data they need to improve operations and reduce waste.
The data and reports that SCRAP TRAKKER automatically and instantly provides offer management and production staff with the ammunition they need to develop best practices and control processes that work for their particular needs – short term and long term.
These productivity improvements increase output per employee and produce higher margins.
