Abstract

A monitoring and tracking system (20) is comprised of a hand-held data collector (22) having a sensor (30), for example, a temperature sensor, a reader (40), for example, a bar code scanner, a user I/O device (44) and a transceiver unit (42) in electrical communication with a data processor (38). The data processor receives information from the sensor and the reader; and the data collector transmits that information over a communication link (26) to a computer where the data is analyzed and stored. In a food processing facility, the above monitoring and tracking system may be used to monitor, track, analyze and provide a real time reporting of temperatures and locations of specific food items in inventory. Each time the food location is changed, a new expiration date for the food item is automatically calculated and applied to a new food rotation label. Further, the history of food items from a manufacturer's food lot number can be quickly reported.
