The development of our quality module started more than 35 years ago, following in the footsteps of Edwards Deming, Philip B. Crosby, Walter Shewart and Joseph Duran, who started the shift away from heavily manual quality inspection towards Right First Time Quality Assurance and developed tools such as Shewart Charts and Statistical Process Control.
Today, Harford Paperless Factory is probably the most comprehensive paperless factory solution, combining decades of experience with continuous improvement, heavily influenced by user input.
Our touchscreen terminals are capable of directly capturing results from connected devices, such as scales, torque meters, temperature probes, refractometers, titrators, moisture analysers, calipers, height gauges, O2/CO2 meters, etc. to ensure that information is always correct and reliable.
Together with in-line data capture from scanners, date coders, cameras, sensors, etc., the system gives you the capability to remove all factory floor paperwork and removes the need for reviewing and validating paper-based control documents.
A paperless factory system should be as easy to use as possible, and it should encourage users to only perform and record correct actions and results - it should be hard to make mistakes!
Our system ensures a high level of control by making sure checks critical to your operation are completed at prescribed intervals; failure to do so can result in the line being stopped until supervisory intervention is provided.
