Weighing & Dispensing – Weighing and dosing in the process industry


SAP MES Best Practice WEIGHING + DISPENSING® from IGZ enables system-supported component weighing with direct connection of scales and dosing systems. The employee is guided through the complete weighing and dosing process with consideration of the optimal batch division and blending (batch blending).
A wide range of sequence and weighing variants optimize workflows and support ergonomic processing for the employee. The containers are marked according to the situation, which facilitates process assurance and batch tracking in the subsequent processing steps of the manufacturing process.


Weighing procedure

System-guided, horizontal, vertical and negative weighing to increase the efficiency of production processes.

Horizontal and vertical weighing

Weighing of components by batch and/or material, based on the parts list items of the order.

Consideration of tolerances

Automatic compliance with and monitoring of tolerance limits for optimum support of product quality.

Batch blending (batch waste)

Optimal combination of available material batches to ensure consistent qualitative product requirements.

Integrated QM processing

Early detection of qualitative deviations during the recording of order-related inspection characteristics enables fast decentralized decisions.

Container allocation + traceability

Clear identification of containers with WIP (work in progress) stocks and complete traceability throughout the entire manufacturing process. manufacturing process.

Alternative component identification

Automatic proposal function for full container provision with integrated residual quantity weighing.
