High quality products and regulatory compliance depend on operators performing the work exactly as specified. Human error can be high when operators have to look through paper instructions, write data and dates on forms, and analyze the data for validity.
Camstar’s Electronic Procedures are step-by-step instructions or tasks that automatically guide an operator progressively through work at an work station.
Electronic procedures are “structured” so that the specifications and tasks are enforceable, and the operators and their actions are traceable. The tasks can be configured to require operator acknowledgement or specific data collection, or to simply be informational history in the manufacturing audit trail.
Operators acknowledge each task as it is performed, either with a simple click, or with a specific “yes” entry, or by collecting detailed parametric data.
Easy to use
Easy to set up
Collecting parametric data via electronic procedures is simple for the operator, and eliminates the need for manual interpretation of the data. Data values can be acquired directly from the measurement tools using Camstar’s open integration design.
For operator entry, the form is automatically generated from the task definitions and the operator enters or barcode scans each value. Each value is checked against its upper and lower limits, and an out-of-spec value causes the task to “fail”.
An out-of-spec condition or other process failure can be configured to automatically take actions such as placing the product on hold, routing it to rework or MRB, or emailing a message, depending on the configured business rules.
