Manufacturing Job Tickets

01/20/2016 8:56 AM

Does anyone know a source for pre-printed manufacturing "Job Tickets"? Or you may know them by some other name. What I'm looking for is the card, maybe 3"x5", that a manufacturing employee fills out each day, that shows how they spent their 8 hours; meaning how many hours on each particular work order, that's turned in at the end of each day.

I could, of course, devise my own. But I seem to recall a few places I've worked that had commercially printed cards on manila card stock. Anyone familiar with these?

I am attempting to move away from any hard paper at our plant. Look for alternatives like tablets and WIFI. You save money by lowering manpower and reducing cost of record keeping.

There are also commercial versions of "swipe" cards and key pads if you want to go paperless. One drawback I can see in these, is that if the employee(s) switch between jobs frequently, there will be a bit of lost time as they go to the closest station to log their swipe their cards and key in the required information.

As for the paper versions, I have always found that off the shelf cards do not really have the information you really want. Every place I have worked has used different cards. You will likely have to design your own and get a local printer to do them up for you. One piece of advice, if your employees are going to be carrying them around, make sure they fit in a shirt or other pocket.

So, I've gone through dozens of online versions or templates and decided to make my own, as suggested. I only need 3 columns: Work Order #, Operation, and Hours.

And of course name and date somewhere.

As far as size, I'll be dividing a vertical 8 1/2" x 11" sheet into 6, ending up with a 2.8" x 5.5" card, which I will have printed onto card stock by a local printer.

Thank you all, for your suggestions!

Oh, and we don't have any swiping stations or tablets. In fact, this company has never even had anything like these Job Tickets in the past. So that will be a big step forward, as far as the data that I will now be able to collect. Perhaps in the future we'll go electronic. I just got promoted to Director of Operations a few months ago, so I have TONS (TONNES?) of upgrades and improvements to make, to get us into the 21st century and into profitability. This will be a good one.

They are called time sheets.
