Building a Paperless Manufacturing Operation
The paperless office has been a manufacturing objective sought for years. Saving costs and the environment are admirable quests. Moving to paperless will take more than throwing out the office memos and printing fewer copies. Paperless is a new paradigm shifting the way your plant operates.
Here are a few guidelines to help avoid common mistakes that can seriously upset your effort to go green and paperless. Keep these thoughts on your mind when scoping your paperless system for a painless implementation.
Implementing ERP enterprise content management (ECM) software without ensuring that employees are on board with going paperless.
Implementing ECM all at once and not in phases. Unable to transition rapidly may feel like a failure, but contrary to the truth.
Methods change when they electronically transform.
Processes in place continues to duplicate paper.
Retaining your paper system as a backup. Duplicating efforts to retain electronically and paper copies is redundant, limiting ECM adoption.
Remember: If it takes more than 2-3 minutes and you can’t find an invoice, it won’t be helpful, and is an expense each time you need go to a file cabinet.
Paperless manufacturing is more than saving paper and the environment, is a productivity boost for the entire company. When well-trained users search your online database to find documents instead of a file cabinet or ask another department to find it for you, your speed to decision support and customer service enhances your ECM value.
