EWS for Tea Industry
Electronic Weighment System:
AMITY specializes in "In-field Weighing" of different commodities like Tea Leaf, Milk, Sugarcane, Banana, Other agricultural produce. Custom made equipment has been designed and developed/adopted for this purpose. This includes:
- A Bluetooth Hanging Scale
- An industrial grade, rugged Hand-held PDA computer
- A Mobile Printer
- Proprietary Application Software for PDA as well as for Server end
The objective of this project is to
- Weigh the 'commodity' from the 'supplier' (farmer in most of the cases) at remote buying locations.
- Eliminate the 'malpractices' in weighing – underweighing or overweighing.
- Eliminate the 'mistakes' in weighing – to ensure that each 'consignment' is credited to 'correct' supplier – a very common mistake in the manual system.
- Faster weighing and thus improved efficiency of the staff
Salient features of EWS are:
- Identification of the 'supplier' through a Smart Card
- Identifiaction of each 'consignment' through RFID technology
- 'Automatic Detection' of Buying Locations through GPS
- 'Automatic Transmission' of 'Correct Weight' data from Hanging Scale to PDA
- Immediate Generation of a "Receipt" using the Mobile Printer
- Instant updation of inforamtion at Factory server, using cellphone companies network
- All equipments communiacting 'wirelessly' without using any 'cables'
- All equipments are battery opearted thus not dependent on Electricity supply
- All equipments are IP54 designed for OUTDOOR operations with exposure to sunlight, rainfall, dust, and free fall
- A "Delivery Note" can be generated for all consignments purchased and now being transferred to factory
- Provision of re-weighing of individual consignment or "a batch of consignments" at the factory, so as to work out "shortages" in transit.
