Manufacturing processes are changing drastically with the physical and digital worlds merging. This digital revolution in the industries is being seen as having a similar effect to the various industries and societies as did the industrial revolution in the late 19th century. Smart technology will make some traditional processes in production and logistics obsolete while creating a whole new field of play available.
There are many ways that digital integration to manufacturing processes is fast turning into a necessity rather than being just a cool new gadget to play with anymore. Employing it ensures that the challenges faced by manufacturers can be tackled in a timely fashion with better estimation systems. It leads to an innovation economy which puts the consumer at the center of all of its activities to drive a sustainable level of prosperity throughout the value chain.
Its effect can be seen in something as simple and commonly used function in several industries and retail organisations like weighing scale automation. This software automates the complete weighing process and efficiently caters to reporting and tracking. Such simple weighing scale automation ensures that all of the weighing operations are processed faster, without any delays or with any long queues at the weighbridge.
Weighing scale automation also ensures that there is no scope for any kind of manipulation at the weighbridge which is a most common issue with any industry. And with an advanced backup and restoration, the data it generates, stores and uses is safe and can be transferred easily to a more secure location, if required. This weighing scale automation is a scalable model and offers value addition in terms of enhancements as per your particular industry.
Added to this safety and clarity of data, all one is left is to ensure that the PQ documentation is taken care of to ensure that the equipment used is performing as intended and expected. At present this is the only source where the weighing scale automation has a chance to be manipulated but can be easily controlled by outsourcing it to a service engineer. This outsourced person can perform installation of the balance and provide the installation qualification and operational qualification documents that form the basis of the PQ documentation.
The PQ documentation will show the procedure to operate the balance, precautions required and the most important part that the balance range is working perfectly for the range of weights for which the equipment has been made. For instance, if the supposed range of balance is from 10mg to 100 mg, the balance weighs those weights perfectly as well as the ranges in-between.
This weighing scale automation has applications to a variety of industries like the automotive and components industry, pharma industry, FMCG, transport and logistics, and many more with focused solution areas in warehouse management and automation, process tracking, traceability, production line solutions, turn around time management, yard management, warranty tracking, unit tracking, quality process automation, stores automation, dispensing automation and much more.
