From the paper economy to digital and integrated incoming goods control
The incoming goods inspection compares all delivered materials with the accompanying documents. Depending on the quantity of goods required, these checks – e.g. measuring, weighing, counting – are carried out by means of a total survey or a random sample. Sampling and material testing are also sometimes part of the normal incoming goods inspection.
Incoming goods inspections are still characterized by papers
The classic incoming goods inspection is a strongly paper-based division of the company. Goods consignment notes, delivery notes, orders, returns and other incoming goods processes are often still processed manually using paper forms. In addition, work is often made more difficult and unnecessarily complex by the maintenance of various systems, such as an ERP system.
Reducing complexity through digitalization
Simple checklists ensure that no control is forgotten and that all necessary values are stored and made available on a central platform. Using the built-in camera function, QR-Codes and Barcodes can also be scanned or photos taken for the documentation of the inspection and stored in the system. An even greater advantage results when production also works with this digital assistance platform.
