At every stage in the traditional manufacturing there will be paperwork- forms to fill in, permission to obtain, instructions to write. Paper documents can not be inquired in the system, besides, there are also some disadvantages including time-consuming process, troublesome handover and not environmentally friendly. To introduce smart manufacturing, it means a significant change from paperwork to paperless work by digitalized technology, achieving a smart system of production management.
The latest iData P1 industrial tablet, which is a new application of iData smart manufacturing, has achieved paperless and digital manufacturing, making manufacturing more efficient and environmentally friendly.
Incoming material management
The quality of raw materials affects the quality of finished products greatly. The management of raw material, both batch and quality, has a great influence on the rate of qualified finished products.
To use P1 to scan the incoming materials and record their information, it makes the whole process way more efficient. You can also use P1 to take pictures of each batch of incoming materials and upload them as a record, so that the responsibilities can be clarified when needed.
The system will generate a list of incoming materials automatically after you complete the receiving. Both the deliverer and consignee just need to confirm on P1, the whole process is done without a single piece of paper.
In addition, the digitization of incoming material management has created a solid foundation for the digitization of the entire production process, for example, the product traceability or inventory replenishment alert, etc.
Production line management
In production line, the works need to associate the components with the products by scanning the barcodes of them after they finish the assembly. This association enables product traceability, and digitalizes the piecework. The workers can view the real-time progress of their own, and the managers can make adjustment timely accordingly.
P1 can not only show the progress, but also demonstrate the operation instruction. This is important for the flexible factories. The managers can make intime adjustments of production process based on the demand, they can also sent the draft and technical requirements to corresponding workers through P1, ensuring the all workers to finish their job on time without mistakes.
All finished products need to go through quality inspection which includes tens of terms to check during this process. The QC will record the inspection and issue a report accordingly.
We found evidence that using P1 can significantly save your time. All you need to do is to scan the barcodes of products, then mark the result from the tester, the system will issue a report automatically. You can also take pictures as a proof of defective products for further investigation.
Regarding the inspected products, they will be sent to the warehouse for storage. You can use P1 to capture all product data so as to complete the handover process right away.
Basically, the warehouse management is in charge of receiving and shipping management, stock inventory, display and removal, etc. Thanks to the application of P1, you can simplify all the process by digitize them. Then you can easily trace the goods, sum them, and analyze the data.
iData P1, an unparallel industrial tablet, is no wonder your ideal partner to achieve the paperless upgrade in smart manufacturing digitalization. Furthermore, it’s also a trustworthy tablet that meets the reliability and battery performance of industrial standards.
