GWP®- Good WeighingPractice™

Select and safeguard the right process with GWP®


Overview

The Weight Of Your Success If you require stable processes, improving quality, lean manufacturing or regulatory compliance, use Good Weighing Practice (GWP) as your benchmark. GWP is a unique science-based methodology for reducing risk when selecting, calibrating and operating new or existing weighing equipment
GWP Recommendation GWP Recommendation is a free service to help you select the right weighing device by matching its metrological performance to your exact measurement needs; you receive a science-based product analysis based on your budget and quality targets. Each GWP Recommendation report includes minimum weight and safety factor calculations to confirm that you have selected the right device for your process
GWP Verification Calibrating a scale tells you that it meets your specifications. GWP Verification goes further by proving that your scale meets both your process requirements and compliance obligations. GWP Verification methodology also determines appropriate maintenance and calibration cycles based on answers to simple risk questions. In addition, you are provided with correct test weights, tolerances and in-house tests (SOPs) for your maintenance and metrology departments. Audit-proof documentation ensures continuous measurement accuracy throughout your product's life cycle
SOP Consulting Do your weighing SOPs meet today's international quality standards? Are different facilities using different procedures? Many organizations find their SOPs are out of step with new regulations and should be updated through professional SOP writing. Modernized SOPs take into account risk, tolerances, calibration and adjustment cycles, test weights, routine testing, smallest net weight and operator training. Introduce scientifically-sound weighing equipment management based on SOPs written by the world's metrology and compliance experts today

GWP® Recommendation

Select the right scale with GWP®

 

GWP® Recommendation - Choose the right scale for your process

With GWP® Recommendation:

  • Purchase equipment with accuracy that meets your process and quality requirements
  • Consider environmental and regulatory factors before equipment selection

If you request a GWP® Recommendation a Mettler Toledo consultant will guide you through a scale selection process which ensures accurate measuring by determining:

  • Largest weight to be weighed
  • Smallest (net) weight to be weighed
  • Weighing accuracy required for your process

Features and Benefits

The Genuine Motivation

As a rule, "validation for the inspector" is a "documentation package" in a computer-assisted system that serves no other purpose than giving someone a piece of paper to shown the inspector.

There are much better reasons for computer-assisted system validation, namely:

  • Increasing process knowledge through improved knowledge of the system
  • Increasing familiarity with the computer-assisted system
  • Minimizing the risk of malfunction
  • Lowering the cost of operating the system
  • Lowering the cost of expanding the system

If these are your motivations for validating your system, you can be sure you'll generate not just costs, but also business management benefits 

GWP® Verification

Safeguard your process with GWP®

GWP® Verification - Reliable calibration and scale performance

The GWP® Verification services ensures that you:

  • Produce consistent, high-quality products
  • Save money by efficiently managing equipment
  • Maintain complete, audit-proof documentation

If you request a GWP® Verification a Mettler Toledo Service consultant will verify if your scale satisfies your process and quality requirements under real operating conditions. The GWP® verification service will provide you:

  • The measurement range in which you can operate your scale to achieve reproducible results without weighing errors
  • Immediate measures to recover your scale accuracy in case of poor performance
  • All necessary information for cost efficient lifetime calibration and testing (eg; test methods, test intervales, test weights)
  • a complete set of audit-proof documentation
