The shortest answer is to automate documentation to save time, lower risks, and quickly analyze data to make better decisions.
Most process plants have some sort of system in place for managing instrument calibration operations and data. However, just like airport security, the systems and processes can be very different even within the same company across different plants. Methods often differ greatly in terms of cost, quality, efficiency, and accuracy of data and the level of automation.
If you are manually writing results on paper or even manually entering data electronically, you’re spending about half your time on paperwork. Using a documenting calibrator to automatically transfer test data to calibration software designed for the task can decrease the amount of time spent on calibration in many cases by up to 75%.
