Quality, compliance, safety; each are interrelated but nothing is more important than safety. Some industries will naturally have some latitude on exact interpretation of safety, for others it has a definite and precise meaning. Particularly in Medical Devices and Aerospace industries a product has to be exactly to specification, and thus safe to use.
Such a demanding environment for manufacture requires attention to all levels of detail and above all to consistent, on specification, quality which is able to be audited through traceability records. The ability to control the manufacturing process to exacting standards, repeatable and stringent material control is important to produce products which are safe to use. Manufacturers will have put into place rigorous procedures with component and product testing through the various operations of production.
These can be labour intensive and take a sampling approach. EmsPT delivers automated solutions for ‘safe product’ manufacturing. These are based upon a set of technologies that acquire data, historise data for real-time and archive analysis, undertake in- process quality control and ensure that components are those which were specified and maintain full traceability – for regulatory compliance, production confidence and customer satisfaction.
If the manufacture of safe products is your business would it help to be able to reliably automate both operational and monitoring systems; checking that all is being constantly undertaken within approved procedures and alerting when any deviation is detected?
