The Piecework Apparel Computer (PAC), Byte's shop floor control module, is the heart of Byte's Apparel Software Suite
and the piecework payroll system. PAC is available in flexible configurations for single plant to multi-plant with
central cutting / remote sewing sites. PAC uses bar-coded bundle tickets to keep track of work-in-process,
scheduling, cut status and tracking, production "bottlenecks", and employee efficiencies. The
Real-Time Shop Floor version
uses a bundle tag rather than multiple coupons and provides all of PACs features INSTANTLY.
