Why does the vision of connected manufacturing seem so disconnected from reality?
With companies investing billions of dollars in smart manufacturing, intelligent automation and advanced robotics, it can seem like autonomous and self-optimizing factory floors are the way of the future. But with just one missing link in the technology chain, that sophisticated future can feel far removed from day-to-day operations, forcing line workers and quality teams to rely on outdated processes and tools – like paper.
Make Paperless a Reality
As manufacturing environments become more digitized and automated, you can’t afford the production delays, documentation errors and duplicated efforts that persist with paper-based or hybrid production records.
It’s no secret that getting high-quality products to market quickly and cost effectively is a recipe for success. MasterControl’s truly paperless manufacturing solutions bridge the digital divide between human personnel and industrial automation, helping your production teams improve the metrics that matter – from lower scrap rates and shorter lead times to increased fill rates and improved yields.
With an integrated digital manufacturing system that crosses the traditional barriers between quality and manufacturing, you can predict and detect quality trends sooner and pinpoint their causes, whether human, machine or environmental. Fully digital batch, device history, calibration and maintenance records connect with your quality systems to automatically flag issues and initiate corrective actions.
