How do i build a device to allow an input and it give a designated output (1015469=input and B2-1= output)? Answered
I work in a warehouse as a forklift operator. I deal with looking at a number on a container, then have to look up the number by going through several pages to find the corresponding isle and row to place the container. EX. ( Container has 1015469 on it. I have to find that number on a sheet then it will tell me to go to B2. Once I get to B2 I have to find that number on another sheet of paper that has the isles and rows so it can tell me if it goes in B2 section 1 for route 20 or in B2 section 2 for route 21. I need to make a device with large enough memory to hold several thousand 7 digit numbers and have each number reference me to the correct destination such as B2-1 or B2-2. I really need some help with this. I have basic electronics experience and a small amount of visual basics experience. I need this device asap to increase my productivity at work so I can step up my performance so as not to loose my job. The device just needs a simple 10 digit keypad to enter the numbers then an enter button and a clear button to be able to enter the next number. It would be even better if I could enter several numbers at once, maybe spaced by a comma, and get several output locations since sometimes I move several containers at once and each goes to a different location. Then I could figure the most effecient route in the warehouse. Any help with this would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance for any help or advice you can give.
Ps. It also needs to be easily updated as the numbers in the database will be frequently changed and updated.
