Software Providers Move into the Problem-Prevention Business

Unlike corrective-action systems that identify problems after they have occurred, the Smart system is set up to prevent operator and process errors by identifying each process and its associated specifications, regulations, materials, and other data. Using this information, the software can guide the user through decision trees that ensure that the process is completed correctly every time. Such real-time process verification can translate into decreases in corrective action requests, recalls, and returned product. (Video courtesy of QCR Corp.)
