7 Ways Mobile Devices Improve Task Management in Manufacturing

Published on

Lean manufacturing principles dictate that smart factories rely on a digital core of data. At many manufacturing companies, however, production workers and managers still use paper for work orders, checklists and the like. Those paper-based systems add steps to the data recording process, diminishing operational efficiency. Going paperless is increasingly seen as a crucial step in implementing the move to a smart factory, because purely digital tracking simplifies task management across the board.

When properly implemented, paperless communications utilize digital data gathering and processing in every aspect of the ERP, including human resources, CRM and inventory management solutions. Here are seven process improvements manufacturers can make with paperless solutions.

6. Sign Off on Purchase Orders
7. Attend to Human Resource Functions

Going paperless is a necessary first step on the road to a smart factory. A paperless solution facilitated by mobile devices simplifies task management on various fronts in manufacturing. Of equal importance, it acts as the necessary conduit for the digital core — gathering and processing data and acting on those results to drive large segments of the production process autonomously.
