Visual Quality Inspection Proved as Gigantic Power in Manufacturing

Focus on providing confidence on quality

Quality assurance is paramount parts of the manufacturing process. It is the part which comes at the end of the production where the final product is inspect for defects and errors before selling it to the customers. This is important because not only it minimize the errors in production, but also prevents humans from items which can be potentially be perilous.

Industries which are involved in producing end products such as Auto parts, mirrors, sanitary ware, Laminates, pharmaceuticals, consumer goods, beverages and foods etc. can immensely profit from visual quality inspection systems

How Do Visual Inspection Systems Work?

Visual Quality Inspection Systems take use of digital sensors, RFID Tags and QR Code which are protected inside the cameras. These cameras use the optical sensors for capturing images which are then processed by computers in order to measure specific characteristics and parameters for decision making

Benefits of Visual Inspection Systems

Save time for Inspection and more on production number: After Visual quality inspection systems have been planned and tuned in to the manufacturing process, they can do immense of production checking in a really short amount of time as compared to human inspection.

Accurate Inspection without any human interference: In human inspection systems, there’s always a great chance of errors and no matter how experienced and focused the employees are, these errors can never brought down to a negligible level. Human capabilities have limitations which Visual Quality Inspection systems haven’t. And this is how they eliminate the chances of error in inspection to a great extent and deliver a higher quality of products.

Compatible with every use-case: Another benefit of Visual Quality Inspections is that in case production method changes, these systems also alter accordingly with great ease.

Increase in Accuracy: They also improve the production efficiency. They can identify errors at a faster rate. Analysis of these remark defects can be made quickly and necessary corrections can be made immediately.

Remote Access: Unlike humans, these systems can work nonstop for twenty-four hours. They can also be operated and programmed from a remote place.

By adopting the visual inspection system in the manufacturing process, companies can boost production and also prevent the wastage which is generated by defected and faulty products. This will save not only the revenues, but also ensure complete customer satisfaction.

Are you managing your IoT devices’ software in the right way?

Enterprises today are part of a new world: a software-driven world. And while this new world has brought many great innovations, it is also forcing organizations in all industries to rethink their software development practices, to deliver new features and offerings faster. Those entities that will embrace and incorporate change most effectively, will be the winners. In a world where industry disruptors set new market conditions, new standards for product delivery and customer satisfaction, industry incumbents are faced with two options: either continue using their existing approaches and tools, with the risk of lagging behind the competition, or adapt to the “new normal” and deliver products and applications faster, with less resources.

As it pertains to the “new normal” DevOps standards, organizations now face many challenges such as cost overruns, software development projects that don’t scale in line with the enterprise growth, and increased market demands for speed. On top of that, the available outdated testing tools don’t offer visibility to ensure the right specifications get tested in the right time.

Lean and agile principles

So, how can you make sure your organization is ready to manage unexpected changes, and deal with any dependencies that you already have under the hood? How do you ensure a strong balance between the existing business and the new development? Many of you may already be familiar with lean and agile principles and have probably even tried applying them in smaller teams. But what we’ve seen so far in the market is that many of you struggle to apply these principles across the entire organization.

Lean and agile principles can help you reach your goals in today’s hyper-competitive world of digital product delivery. By becoming a lean and agile enterprise your organization will be able to adapt faster to the needs of the market by improving internal collaboration and communication.
