In this article you will read about the challenges faced by ottobock, one of the world's leading healthcare companies, and how they established a process to produce individual, product-specific manuals. In addition, ottobock significantly reduced the cost of printing manuals and made it possible to produce order-specific manuals in all languages ordered.
Wheelchairs consist of a multitude of components and functions, each of which is assembled individually for the respective requirements of the patient. Up to now, however, it was not possible to supply individual instructions for use with these specially built wheelchairs. Rather, the instructions for use always included a description of all potentially possible components instead of being limited to the functions built into the wheelchair. This led to confusion for the customer and specialist staff and at the same time to unnecessarily high printing costs. The manuals have also only been translated into a limited number of languages.
In this case study we demonstrate the challenges experienced by plant component manufacturing at Linde engineering, in the audit, management and compilation of quality certificates. We look at how a solution was established using a SEAL system with document management bar code recognition, as old documents filed under ArchiveLink were easily migrated into the DMS, and we look at the advantages this project brought for Linde Engineering.
Many businesses use SAP to control their processes, because this enables them to plan and administer virtually all business processes. Depending on the company, further supporting documents - such as drawings, terms and conditions, checklists – which are often administered in a separate data resource, are required in addition to the actual SAP forms.
Work instructions, technical drawings and orders on paper, manual feedback or releases – many industrial firms have not yet made full use of the possibilities of digitization. The conversion to a digital, paperless production, however, brings many advantages: it saves time, money and resources, and reduces susceptibility to errors in processes. We assist businesses in making their SAP systems fit for paperless production.
In daily business, it is normal for extensive document elements from greatly different sources to be stores in SAP archives. These documents, generated many years ago by scanner as TIFF or PDF files, can come from internal or external sources and various areas of operations, and may have been processed by different persons. All documents are in different formats, in different degrees of quality and stored in different archives. This leads to confusion and the difficulty of viewing or further processing these documents quickly and efficiently. We at SEAL Systems can show you that the storage and viewing of these documents can also be done quickly, efficiently and without nerve-racking work steps. With ArchiveLink XSA, your software for management of document archiving, hundreds of thousands of documents available online can be standardized and migrated in one step.
