WHAT IS PAPERLESS PRODUCTION?
WHO NEEDS PAPERLESS PRODUCTION?
Saving more than just paper and ink, the SEAL Digital Production solution consolidates many manual steps to streamline everything into an efficient and cost-effective workflow. Paperless Production can help your company enable this solution quickly and realize immediate growth potential without extra overhead or continuous staff training.

HOW DOES PAPERLESS PRODUCTION WORK?
These are the steps for SEAL Systems’ Digital Factory solution for Paperless Production when SAP production jobs are automatically triggered on a regular interval:
- Paperless Production collects the job details with operations, tasks, and all needed documents.
- The staff receives the job list with all items and can then go off-line with mobile devices.
- When the job is completed at the workstation, build quantity is entered, and scrap totals are recorded.
- The employee then confirms the job and submits the finished details.
- Paperless Production returns the details to SAP, where the production order is finalized.
All within the same workflow as before, our software extends SAP functionality digitally to the plant floor.
