When you write a new policy of procedure in the office, it is a great way to give people a guideline to follow. However, people make mistakes—that is just a reality of life. When you give a machine a rule, however, barring any system malfunctions or major breakdowns, it'll follow that rule perfectly, every time, no matter what.
That is why automation works so well in the manufacturing industry. One mistake can have consequences ten steps down the line, and that consequence could jeopardize production. Automation and manufacturing go hand-in-hand because it removes the human error and mistakes that can gum up productivity. So if your manufacturing line is automated, why aren't your document management systems automated?
Documents are an important part of the manufacturing process, and manufacturers rely on them to accurately produce and report. That is why many manufacturers are turning to document management to organize, control, and automate their document processes.
Documents are important to the manufacturing industry for quality control, reporting, and regulatory compliance issues. Here's how document management can improve manufacturing.
One of the areas that document automation shines is in regulatory compliance. Manufacturers are required to retain records for a certain period and be able to show those documents when needed. A document management system can control how long these documents are kept, how they are protected from editing or deletion, and when they are purged from your system after they are unnecessary.
Manufacturing includes a glut of paperwork to ensure quality control. When this paperwork is done on paper, it can cause documentation errors and workflow issues. Choose document management to automate and speed up quality control documentation, making your processes more responsive and fluid.
