FaciliWorks 8i: Printing Labels for Assets, Tools, Parts and Calibrations
Printing of bar-coded labels for assets, tools and parts is a breeze. You can find these labels either within Reports -> Standards Reports, specifically in the Asset Reports, Tool Reports and Part Reports categories, or within Reports -> Enhanced Reports, specifically in the Asset Reports and Part Reports categories. First, select the necessary label size from the list. Use the ensuing filter to define your criteria and then click the View button to pull up the labels. Each label includes the unique ID number and bar code.
To print calibration labels for your assets/gages, go to Reports -> Standard Reports -> Calibration Reports and then select the necessary calibration label size. Use the filter to define your criteria and then click the View button. Calibration label information includes the Gage ID or Asset ID, Staff ID, the ID of the reference gage and the next calibration due date.
You can also print custom labels by using the Custom Report Designer. Rather than starting a custom label from scratch, it's easier to copy an existing label and then customize it by bringing in more information. For instance, starting with a copy of an asset label, you could create a preventative maintenance label that shows the last maintenance date, the PM technician, Asset ID, bar code and next due date. For more information about customizing labels, see the Custom Report Designer (CRD2) chapter in the FaciliWorks 8i Help System.
