Error Proofing in Manufacturing

There’s a better way to protect your company from costly errors that take place on the plant floor. COVID-19 has raised the stakes higher than ever – making visibility and control a must-have, not a nice-to-have.

In our Ebook, “6 Ways Error-Proofing Protects Your Manufacturing Business,” we outline the leading ways smart manufacturers can leverage technology to drive the following outcomes.

  • A single database links all aspects of work together and translates data across multiple disparate sources eliminating the potential for human error. According to Arvel Wooten, Organizational Development Specialist for Hatch Stamping, which has used smart manufacturing platform to create a single system of record, said: “We are no longer chasing data from one source to another. It is now readily available to help us make more informed, proactive decisions.”
  • Rigorous tracing and tracking methodology for every action on the plant floor making it easy to detect any issues.
  • System operations mapped to a production control plan that doubles as the error-proofing control mechanism. All activities are recorded and immediately available for analysis.
