The Fatal Flaws for Process Manufacturers
Every piece of software you consider holds the potential for fatal flaws. Miss the fatal flaws and it is difficult to project what the future holds for you

material football  Flaws The characteristics of material yield some potential for fatal flaws. Bulk materials are more difficult to manage with software than packaged materials (a rail car of chemicals versus a case of paint). The predictability of both the materials and the process yields some potential for fatal flaws. If material is inconsistent (quality specifications) or the process is not predictable (quality, yield) then it is more difficult to manage with software. Production processes also give rise to the Read More
