Product specification verification and Certificate of Analysis generation

 

In chemical and plastics importing and distribution one of the common issues we find companies facing is that they are sending customers product that is out of spec and having to deal with the ramifications of that “mistake”.  In addition, making a photo copy of your suppliers Certificate of Analysis but cutting and pasting your logo looks unprofessional.  In response to this, VISCO offers a Certificate of Analysis module with the following functions:

  • Create Specification Headings (for example: Melting Point)
  • Create Standard Purchase Specification Requirements (for example: when we purchase this material, the melting point must be Maximum 140 degrees)
  • Create Customer Standard Specification Requirements (for example: when we sell this product to this customer it must have a melting point of at least 120 degrees)
  • Compare actual product spec with purchase spec requirements and present warning if material is out of spec
  • Compare Customer Spec requirements against a specific lots Certificate of Analysis and warn the user if the material is out of spec before sending it to the customer
  • Create a custom Certificate of Analysis document with your logo, displaying only the specific specifications you want displayed, alongside the customer requirements (optional)

To gain a better understanding of how this module could help your business, lets look a little deeper into how each function actually works:
