Bulk Materials Handling Inspection with Paperless Checklists

Large scale operations means there are can
be big repercussions from small imperfections. Bulk Materials Handling is one
of the cornerstones of the success of the Australian economy. The Australian
mega ports provide numerous imports and exports to different nations and
regions of the world and their success is built around efficiency and precision.
Adept bulk materials handling inspection is one of the ways in organisations
and large corporations are ensuring resources are getting where they need to
go, when they need to go there and that everything is following strict quality
adherence. The maintenance and management of large handling fleets involving
cranes, dumper trucks moving floors etc., can be a complex process. Paperless
inspection and CMMS/Work Order systems are proving to be the answer making
everything simple.

Bulk materials handling inspection can
naturally be diverse because of its extensive oversight. There can be
inspection of goods and cargo, monitoring of the equipment life cycle or pre
start checks for the heavy machinery. Digital inspection and asset management
solutions are allowing management to keep control and an excellent oversight
whilst allowing inspectors all the information they need at the right time.
Inspectors can benefit from using numerous mobile device functions such as automatic
GPS timestamps to record asset location, standardized response for efficient
inspection and the camera to record data no words can express. The introduction
of speech-to-text applications alongside the camera and touchscreen features
means inspectors have a diverse range of tools to record diverse results. Pre
start checks of heavy machinery such as cranes, dumpster trucks or moving
floors is another key benefactor by implementing paperless bulk materials
handling inspection solutions. Reference material in the form of manuals,
industry compliance or regulations such as ISO 17253 can be easily attached to
specific checklist parts, meaning inspectors always have the right aid for each
asset and each inspection type. Paperless bulk materials handling inspection
systems also allow management and other stakeholders to gain a detailed
oversight in real time. Whilst all the inspectors are gathering data, the
back-end software is providing in-depth analysis and dynamic number-crunching
for business management. Results can be displayed to board members, industry
personnel or even the inspectors themselves in real-time. Reports are handily
available via 24/7 web portal access and can either be hosted in-house or on
cloud based solution (SaaS). Top to bottom, paperless bulk materials handling
inspection applications can streamline and speed up the inspection process.
Some organisations have already shown evidence of time savings of up to 1/3 of
their entire inspection procedure.
