Production in a modern steel mill implies many measurement procedures and workflows, which is why lab technicians and steel experts deal with many measurement results. This laboratory data must therefore be carefully collected, evaluated, managed, and archived.
LIMS systems (laboratory information management system) provide the best possible support and automation for centralized test processing in steel industry companies. LIMS is a flexible and reliable extension to the laboratory, suitable for accurate collecting, processing, managing, and evaluating all the data generated in the laboratory.
On the one hand, this reduces the necessary manual work steps, which saves you time and money, and on the other hand, it allows for better accuracy on the part of the test results. Errors in incoming and outgoing goods and internal quality assurance can thus be largely eliminated.
Due to the great importance of the steel industry in Germany with its many branching value chains, the mass share of iron, Fink & Partner developed an innovative software solution, [FP]-LIMS, and before that [DIA] Analysis Management, for the sub-areas of incoming goods, outgoing goods, production, metrology, testing technology as well as for auditing.
Testing incoming and outgoing materials on the one hand and of outgoing goods and metallic materials on the other: A suitable LIMS system can easily accommodate the increased documentation effort. This is because it enables the fast and uncomplicated creation of certificates and usage decisions from the corresponding raw data.
