EDMS- Top 4 use cases in Manufacturing Firms

EDMS in Manufacturing

Our previous article presented a glance over the importance of the documentation process in manufacturing firms. Numbers of advantages of using the electronic document management system were communicated in the blog. So, this succeeding blog will be talking about the four main use cases of the EDMS system in any manufacturing firm.

The operations in manufacturing firms are not limited to just the production of logistics. But, it takes support from several other processes in the firm. Manufacturing requires the raw materials which are received through supply. The forecasting is used to manufacture a specific quantity of logistics. The management of existing and new logistics is the other big task. In the end, the transportation process helps to deliver the logistics to the retailers and customers. Communication with all the stakeholders also plays a vital role.

Most importantly, the validity of all these processes is verified by the documents only. As discussed earlier, “If is not in the documents, it didn’t happen”. The production unit, the raw material received, the transportation used, the forecast, orders, and all other data are stored in the documents only.

EDMS in the process

EDMS system helps the manufacturing firms to store and use this bulk of data in a more organized and managed way. It is neither safe nor a good idea to keep the physical files and papers for the documents of this much importance. The chances of different physical damage will always be a threat to the data and information of your firm.

Electronic Document Management System works to eliminate the chances of these risks. Moreover, the EDMS aims at smoothening the documents and information flow across the different departments & operational units of the firm.

Here are the top four user cases of EDMS in the different departments of the manufacturing industry:

Supply chain management

Supply chain management is one of the most important parts of any manufacturing firm. It works as the connecting bone between the market and the manufacturing firm. Electronic Document Management System like docEdge DMS helps to organize all the information about the supply of logistics in a well managed and digital format and thus make it more accessible.

The information about the different suppliers, the logistics received, logistics sent, the payment received and given, the quantity, date and time, etc. can be managed in a categorized and integrated system. Any paper can be signed and then sent to the other party as well. It makes the supply chain process very efficient and timeliness.

Logistics management

Manufacturing is all about logistics. A manufacturing firm makes the production strictly on a proper calculation of supply and demand. To perform this necessary calculation, the information such as demand in the market, logistics available in the market, logistics available in the warehouse, the need for new production, supply and material required for the manufacturing, and other bulk of information has to be analyzed.

All of this information comes in the form of documents. Any mistake in this process can cost a loss of millions of dollars to the firm. So, Electronic Document Management System removes the chances of mistakes and thus provides every data at the fingertips within moments.

Accuracy in accounting and finance

Due to the contribution of the different processes in the manufacturing firms, there is a lot of accounting and finance work. Taking the example, a firm has to keep a record of the payment done to different suppliers, the payment received from the other party, quantity of inventories, salary of the staff, spending on the different departments, cash in-flow, cash out-flow, and many more.

So, thousands of documents have to be managed only for accounting and finance. EDMS takes this headache away from you. The Electronic Document Management system allows you to manage all of your documentation and finance data in a digital format. So, it also becomes easier to share, retrieve and present the data for future use.

Complete control over transportation

A manufacturing firm is associated with the number of transportation service providers according to their respective market size. So, an electronic document management system helps keep a record with every transport associate and partner.

An efficient record of inventories traveling with a specific fleet along with the quantity and other specifications can be maintained. Moreover, the necessary documents can also be transferred digitally to the fleet drivers so that chances of document damage can also be avoided.

Wrapping up

EDMS has the potential of enhancing the management of different processes in manufacturing firms. It eliminates the chances of error and thus makes the documentation even smoother and well organized.

Electronic Document Management System for manufacturing industry

The manufacturing industry is nothing less than the backbone of any country. For example, the manufacturing industry contributes around 17% of the total GDP. Moreover, the industry has been growing at a rate of 9-10% every year since 2003. But, these facts and figures are not what make it the backbone of the country. It is the importance and contribution of the manufacturing industry that makes it so. The industry fulfills the thousands of needs of billions of people in day-to-day life. Vehicles, packed food, clothes, medicines, lifestyle products, and other million of needs are fulfilled by the manufacturing industry only.

But, do you know what the backbone of the manufacturing industry is? It is the documentation and record-keeping process of the industry.

Re-shape your Documentation Process- Shake Hands with Emerging Technology

documentation process

Papers were invented 2000 years ago in China which changed the face of communication forever. The appearance and ingredients of paper have changed but the purpose remained the same. The invention in any age takes place according to the need of that specific time. So, the invention of paper was undoubtedly a marvelous discovery at a time when information was limited and the use of information was also limited.

But today we live in the age of information. Millions of paper sheets are used every hour, maybe never to be looked at again. So, it indicates perfectly that the invention of paper was not meant to support the management of information in the 21st century. That’s why docEdge is here, to make the documentation process efficient, smooth, and faster.

I can bet when the paper was discovered, there were no terminologies like corporations, mail, hacking, stakeholders, breaching, etc. As a result, documents were more than sufficient to fulfill the requirements.

OCR – Search Any Document with Just a Random Keyword You Remember

(ocr) optical character recognition

Time is money and it is never a good idea to waste it searching for a document from folder to folder and file to file. If you are above the age of 20, I can bet you must have experienced the same scenario in your life. We all know a person who spends the whole of his life providing the right document at the right place at right time. Yesterday, it used to take a month to deliver a message from one address to another one. But today, it takes just a moment. Kudos to technology.

Introduction to OCR

So don’t you think, the technology must be having a solution for this documentation problem as well? Obviously, it has, and the name of the solution is Optical Character Recognition. The solution has such capability that let alone the folder, you don’t even need to remember the name of the document to search.

So, OCR is basically a feature that makes the number of tasks very easy. There is no longer a need to store the piles of documents in your office when you can do it on the digital podium. Here, we are not asking you to store thousands of documents images on the computers. OCR is very ahead of it. We understand that storing the documents is not enough because editing, signing, and retrieving the documents are more important functions of a document. That’s where the OCR shows up.

Working principle of OCR

When you scan the document, OCR technology will read each and every word and will save it as a pdf file instead of an image. But wait, it is a very small portion of what OCR can do. It is obvious that you will save your document with a name. But remembering the name of multiple documents is the real headache, isn’t it? Here comes the OCR. Instead of putting the name of the document, now you will be putting the random keyword that you remember from the document, and boom, OCR will bring the document right in front of you.

Most of the time, we don’t remember the name of a document but remember what the document carried in it. So, OCR makes this little information sufficient to get the document and present it to you within moments.

Functions of OCR

1. Scans the document, not the image: most document scanners are capable of capturing the image only. On the other hand, OCR helps to capture the real document, its properties & information to save it in the digital format.

2. Reads the text: to ensure that you don’t have to remember the name of the document, OCR technology reads every word of it. Every single text is fed into the system to provide the best experience for you.

3. Makes searching easier and more fun: you are not a machine to cram everything and no one understands it better than OCR. So, just type in some words you remember about the document and OCR will provide you with the right document at the right place at right time.

Wrapping Up

So, it can be stated that Optical Character Recognition is an effective solution to provide relief from the headache of finding out the right document from the pile without having sufficient information. With OCR, you don’t only store and manage your documents in the digital format, but you also enhance their traceability and availability. Optical character recognition takes you a step closer to the automation of documents.
