Mapping validation studies are required in spaces that process or store GxP-regulated materials. But, performing regular mapping studies can be costly and time consuming. Have you ever wondered about leaving the mapping sensors in place and using this high-density sensor deployment for monitoring? Essentially, this would result in ‘continuous mapping’ of the environment.
Warehouses and distribution centers can have subtle fluctuations and highly variable temperature and humidity that only become apparent upon analysis of long-term data. Long-term data shows periodic excursions that a short-term, seasonal mapping study might miss. The information derived from this data can allow you to intelligently reconfigure shelving layouts, product storage, and HVAC system equipment for better control, all year long. In addition, if a sensor failed or lost communication, full visibility of warehouse conditions would still be available. But, is continuous mapping cost prohibitive?
In this webinar, we analyze the actual costs of continuous mapping in your warehouse and distribution applications, as compared to intermittent mapping studies. The results might surprise you, but the data quality and increase in environmental control will definitely excite you.
