A Paperless Factory relies on software and automated solutions for its set of processes that form a value chain and eliminates paper. Doing so, it accelerates task streams at various levels, boosts efficiency, and improves turnaround time to ensure maximum revenue. However, one shouldn’t limit the scope of Paperless Factory to abandoning paper and converting data into its digital form. Not only does it entail the flow of information digitally within a connected floor facility, but also emphasizes the type, machine-level compliance, interactivity, management, and quality and revision control of the data.

The Future Of Paperless Factory

Eliminating paper in manufacturing, also known as the Smart Factory or Industry 4.0, is just the first step of the digital revolution. There has been a significant transformation when we compare modern-day printed material to that of our ancestors’ early drawings of shapes, symbols, and pictures on cave walls. The next step of this advancement is more than just becoming “Paperless“.

Transferring physical media into the digital domain, a crucial element of our digitized Smart Factory, provides a far more significant fundamental change. The future of ‘Paperless Manufacturing’ is much more than just eliminating paper from shop floor.

Let's Add Value To Your Shop-floor

Eliminating manual reporting of shop floor activity using touch-screen entry. Wherein data collection technology replaces the traditional job tickets, cards and “sleeps” that workers previously relied on to provide feedback to the plant’s scheduling and job costing systems.

Our solution helps to reduce quality defects, eliminates human error, minimizes waste and scrap, and increases productivity. The system delivers shop floor control and visibility.

Paperless Factory also enables faster automated data collection which is more accurate and eliminates/reduces paperwork.

Benefits Of Paperless Factory

  • A significant amount of time-saving to handle, navigate and quicker to process in an integrated manner and in a real-time data processing mode.
  • The ability to direct, monitor and control work activities at processing positions.
  • The ability to access real-time data for the location, quantity, and process status of individual work units in the factory.
  • The ability to account for all inventory in work-in-process as well as in main stores and finished goods.
  • The ability to “see” the material, labor, machine and tool utilization expanded throughout the entire production process.
  • The flexibility to react quickly to changes in the manufacturing environment.For example, the ability to change schedules, routings, material, bills, and product mix in a real-time mode.
