KMF (Precision Sheet Metals) commitment to continuous development of its systems and processes has seen it implement a hand-held system to capture and distribute process information from individual elements of the business.
The results will see greater control and the ability to predict when conditions that could adversely affect quality occur and therefore be able to react to those conditions.
At the heart of this new data capture procedure is the Principle Suite software from Applied Principles, which works in tandem with the hand-held data capture units allowing a variety of information to be collected, from images, process data such as oven temperature and critically signatures from process owners. The data collected creates a ‘health check’ for a particular process which is then automatically organised and distributed by e-mail to team leaders and other relevant members of staff. The outcome is that this data encourages rigorous pro-active checks that drive consistent process adherence.
