Cement specialists and laboratory technicians deal with a lot of laboratory data every day, which has to be evaluated, archived and analyzed. Nowadays, careful analyses and qualified data are the cornerstone of quality management. This laboratory data must be carefully collected, evaluated, managed and archived. Managing the amount of data as efficiently and economically as possible – this is one of the biggest challenges cement plants also face today. A cement LIMS can help to centrally and transparently manage and visualize the laboratory data that accumulates in a cement plant.
The Laboratory Information Management System [FP]-LIMS is a modern and highly practicable software solution for the collection, processing, management and evaluation of all data generated in the laboratory. On the one hand, this reduces the necessary manual work steps, and on the other hand, the LIMS allows better accuracy on the part of the test results. You benefit from great time and cost savings. Errors in incoming and outgoing goods can also be largely eliminated through the use of LIMS. With our LIMS software, we offer you a very practical, cost-effective and proven way to centrally manage your laboratory data. Our customers appreciate the LIMS solution especially for its high flexibility, because: It adapts completely to your individual requirements, not the other way around. Many steel mills worldwide have been successfully using the LIMS software for many years. Digitizing quality processes in cement plants has never been easier with [FP]-LIMS.
Do you need an overview of the functionalities of the LIMS software? We have summarized these for you below. Please feel free to arrange a free consultation in which we will give you an insight into the software. We will then analyze together how [FP]-LIMS can optimally organize the laboratory processes in your company.
Why does LIMS play a crucial role for your cement factory and in this industry?
The cement industry today has a rising demand for data quality and laboratory processes. Cement specialists and lab technicians deal with many measurement data every day, which needs to be evaluated, archived, and analyzed.
These days, accurate analyses are the basis of quality standards.
Which IT solution is still mostly used today? MS Excel is still frequently applied in laboratories nowadays. However, this program has reached its limits and is often no longer able to meet these requirements, as manual input implies errors.
What are the current solutions to this problem? The modern IT landscape offers a large number of new technologies. One of the market leaders is LIMS software. LIMS is an acronym that means “Laboratory Information Management System”.
As a practical extension to the laboratory, LIMS can support quality management processes and manage your data, analysis, and samples.
Cement is an inorganic and non-metallic building material produced by natural raw materials (limestone and clay) with chemical processes in a cement factory. Cement factories, therefore, work with a large amount of laboratory data and samples, which are also essential for various certifications.
Incoming goods, outgoing goods, production, metrology, testing technology, and auditing are also fundamental needs of the cement industry. For this reason, Fink & Partner GmbH has developed an innovative, reliable, and flexible solution for the laboratory, [FP]-LIMS, and before that [DIA] Analysis Management.
