Data Communication – Paper vs Digital

Building a Culture of Compliance Series

August 24, 2017 in Compliance, Paperless

Maintaining and tracking paper-based documents is cumbersome and time-consuming work for managers and employees. Paper-based systems lack control and accuracy, whilst time is wasted searching for and communicating data across the factory.

The Factory Floor Traveler

To communicate information across the factory floor, many staff are needed to produce the necessary documents including orders, procedures, required materials etc. Using traditional paper-based methods, documents are required to be moved, photocopied, signed, moved again and stored physically. As many industry experts will know, this paper-based method is done using a file called the Shop Floor or Factory Floor Traveler, which gets larger and more difficult to maintain over time.

Central Data Exchange System

Implementing technology-based systems enables companies to centrally control and store important documentation from orders, material, suppliers, training documents and SOPs.
This enables those on the factory floor to easily see at anytime the most recently revised documents, whilst being able to sign these documents, without having to move or store anything physically.
