Weighing and Dispensing Errors: A MES solution

The weighing and dispensing process has a considerable impact on the manufacturing industries. An automated weighing and dispensing system can be very beneficial to a company by optimizing the use, traceability, and control of raw materials, resulting in a constant improvement of quality, and even saving resources and money.

In contrast, companies that manually handle their weighing and dispensing processes risk a lot. A manual process results in excessive paperwork that makes it difficult to control and trace materials, and there can be a risk of dispensing the wrong batch, expired materials, or risking human error at the time of weighing.

The advantages of an automated system outweigh that of a manual process. So, what should an automated Weigh and Dispense solution have to increase revenue, ensure quality, and at the same time follow the guidelines of the ISA 95 MOM standard?

A MES Solution

AG Solution has created a Weigh & Dispense MES solution that is the answer to the headaches of operators and engineers, and the cure for negative business impact. Our solution offers you:

  • Digital Operational Guides: Operator management and control of processes with defined workflows and SOPs.
  • Control and traceability: Both tasks involved, as well as raw materials in process and capacities. It also provides a controlled master data of materials in one place (BOM's).
  • Integration: It integrates with the shopfloor and ERP, it is customizable for any management platform managed by the customer. The solution can be interfaced with quality systems or other MOM systems
  • Quality: verification on wireless handheld devices and simplified validation of processes and commissioning. Quality is also strengthened by having consistent weighing processes and priority-based planning.

Our Weigh & Dispense MES solution also achieves business rule compliance by eliminating paper and reducing human error and the waste that results from it.

Benefits for the manufacturing industries

There are several benefits when using AG Solution's Weight and Dispense solution:

  • Production Optimization: Digitalizing Weigh & Dispense steps allow to easily control and better maintain and manage the process. For manual processes, labor and overtime are reduced by eliminating paperwork with Weighing Operations reports and cleaning room and equipment logbooks. MES-implemented processes reduce errors, so an operator can produce more end products.
  • Quality assurance: Rest assured having operation and status control of the cleaning process and the equipment calibration. Our solution also gives you environment checklists, an audit trail, and guides you on how to avoid cross-contamination.
  • Less waste: The MES solution tells you what material to use, in what order, and how to do it. This ensures product quality and increases customer satisfaction. The system can use FEFO strategies in a flexible way, to adapt to your production needs.
  • Cost reduction: By having control and traceability of materials on a single platform, waste and rework is avoided, saving costs.
  • Integration: Saves operator time and ensures correct weighing by eliminating manual inputs. Our solution mitigates errors by integrating ERP and automation systems.
  • Performance reports: by having complete control of the system, you can generate multiple reports for performance or quality. Therefore, you can select the KPIs you need to further optimize your production.
