Both internal and external audits are commonplace in all business sectors and are sure to increase in scope in the future. Whether to prove compliance with GxP, the upcoming Supply Chain Act, energy savings or for insurance reasons: there is no company that doesn’t have to face these audits. Accordingly, companies need to develop extensive and, above all, valid audit-proof documentation.
In practice, however, it is often the case that in the event of an audit, all the information is painstakingly and manually compiled. Being able to present all available data is of enormous importance, as otherwise the resulting loss of points can lead to the audit being failed – which can cause a considerable loss of time as well as a delay in production.
Photorealistic digital twins, with their comprehensive documentation capabilities, can provide considerable added value when it comes to delivering audit-proof data and the necessary evidence for the operation of technical systems particularly quickly and reliably in accordance with the applicable audit guidelines.
Thanks to FRAMENCE, comprehensive and up-to-date documentation, as well as the legally required verification, becomes economically feasible. Sensors attached to the various assets measure values at regular intervals and transmit them to the digital twin in real time. The user can view and check these values via any browser and regardless of his own location.
When the auditor announces himself, all the data can be called up immediately with just a click. Information on whether, for example, the required number of fire extinguishers is available and where they are located, or whether highly efficient pumps with the right pump types or the correct nameplates have been installed in accordance with legal requirements, can be called up conveniently at the touch of a button via the photorealistic twin.
This puts an end to time-consuming searches for the right information, and even unexpected audit queries can be answered quickly. This is particularly important, as data that cannot be found can lead to a poor audit result – the worst-case scenario is that the plant is shut down until the alleged problems are resolved. Consequently, this is associated with high costs that could have been avoided with a clean documentation system.
