Process industry

Ensure optimal functioning of installations, maximize output, and guarantee product quality and safety.

A worker in a yellow hard hat peers intently at machinery, indicating focused inspection or adjustment.

Challenges

In order to ensure that things are done “first time right”, thousands of Standard Operating Procedures and Work Instructions are created and distributed throughout the organization. Each of these documents provide a step-by-step description of how a process or activity should be done. Unfortunately, documents are fine for reading at a desk, but hardly usable while working. While these documents are created with the best intentions, no one really knows whether they are truly followed as there is no execution trace.

Our solution

Proceedix is a digital inspection and instruction workflow execution platform. The core of our system is not a form but a workflow specifying each task of an instruction or inspection and indicating how it should be done right. Each time a workflow is performed, every step of the process is logged in a unique execution report.

The Proceedix platform has various features particularly designed to cope with typical instruction and inspection execution requirements in process industries.

Typical use cases of Proceedix in the process industry include:

  • Line cleaning and changeover instructions
  • Product and line safety controls such as metal detection checks
  • Transport loading and unloading instructions for dangerous goods
  • Team leader “walk the floor” activity
  • Sample collection and processing instructions
  • Periodical asset inspections
  • Audit, including food processing, 5S, GMP, and more
