After a successful Proof of Concept, Afarak have made the decision to introduce Principle Suite, the paperless Process & Compliance Management system by Applied Principles. Afarak is a growing global organization that supplies world leading companies with speciality alloys. Operating from mines and plants across South Africa, Turkey and Germany, Afarak is a vertically-integrated producer of specialist and critical alloys.

Phase 1 of the project will see the team at Mogale use rugged IP68 smartphones to manage Pre-Tap, Ladle & Ingot Inspections, perform Quality Checks for all Finished Product Shipments & Raw Material Deliveries and also manage the process around Lab tests.

Bertus Van der Merwe, CEO at Afarak South Africa says “We are firm believers in technology and we are engaged in numerous investment projects which will lead to increased production efficiencies. The primary reason for investing in the Applied Principles software is to provide our capable team at Mogale the ability to capture real-time and consistent process information which will make a significant impact on our strive for continuous improvement in Safety, Quality and Productivity.”

Chabisi Motloung, General Manager at Afarak Mogale says “The Applied Principles software is logical and easy to use but yet very powerful in the ability for my team to manage business critical processes. The software allows us to build our own custom checks and inspections with the ability to close the loop on corrective actions including photos, signatures and email alerts.

The team at Applied Principles have been providing excellent support and training, both on-site and remotely, and we are looking forward to have Phase 1 fully implemented by the end of January 2019.”
