What's an Business Smartwatch? It’s an extensible instrument still connected, able to integrate contextual information into application-based workflows. Compared to a smartwatch, most HMI technologies simply use static panels.
Industrial smartwatches can be used to target manufacturing and logistics issues – improving quality, increasing productivity and reducing costs. The portable interface delivered with a smartwatch is well suited for rearranging complex industrial processes into small standalone applications
Smartwatches has a versatile application in the industry:
- Data Collection for Quality Management
- Sending and receiving alerts for service and maintenance
- Coordinating work in intralogistics
Exploring the role of industrial smartwatches in quality management
The Industrial Smartwatch and Quality Management
Quality defects often occur because of incorrect information provided to workers. work instructions, for example. How can we change that? Increase product quality by providing accurate information to workers and encouraging them to report critical information.
Smartwatches is the perfect solution. The workshop data is collected in real time – not only information on defects or deviations from the defined tolerance limits, but also images of the workshop describing the damage. Through integration with existing ERP applications, affected workers receive real-time information and are alerted of upcoming tasks.
Industrial smartwatches offer the following advantages for quality management:
- Using Appropriate Machine Programs
- Reducing NCC Using Instructions Standardized Workplaces
- Enhancing Likelihood Controls
- Implementing Effective Data Acquisition Processes by Collecting Production Data
- Let's use a real-world example.
Quality Control of Incoming Goods
The use of a smartwatch to track incoming and outgoing goods functions as follows:
Arrivals of Goods
When From the arrival of the goods, the logistics workers from the entrance simply send a request for support of their smartwatch to the smartwatch of a quality management to ficer. No additional phone calls needed.
Inspect the Goods
Next, the quality management officer conducts a quality inspection using a checklist on the smartwatch. The checklist is a guarantee that all required steps are completed – increase compliance to mandatory audit routines.
The Quality Management Person in Charge of the Integrated Barcode Reader
All data is automatically stored for archiving and long-term analysis since the smartwatch is connected to an existing QM business application.
Resides in the use of real-time data – that is the game changer.
