QR codes provide a great opportunity for manufacturing engineers.
Take a highly automated piece of equipment and embed QR codes on the HMI for spare parts, SOP’s, maintenance procedures and trouble shooting aids.
QR code generators are available free from the World Wide Web and can be generated in the form of *png,pdf & jpeg images.
Your Android phone can download free QR code readers (Apps) from the Android MarketPlace.
Generate codes for URL’s holding the required information and embed them in the alarm screens of the HMI
When an alarm condition occurs scan the 2D barcode with the QR scanner app and take the user directly to the URL giving the required information for corrective action.
Have Android will Six Sigma 🙂
