The most accurate metering pumps are of the reciprocating plunger type with variable speed drives, variable stroke, or both. The variable stroke feature is valuable when a single drive is used for a battery of several metering pumps, the overall throughput is varied by speed, whilst adjustment to the recipe can be made by adjusting the stroke of individual pumps. A key feature of this type of pump is the design of the inlet and outlet valves which must close precisely and without leakage. This becomes rapidly more difficult to achieve as viscosity increases and becomes impossible when solid material is present.

As each new problem has arisen, the understandable reaction of applying a correspondingly new technology to the problem has been taken. The result is a collection of self-supporting plant systems, such as time and attendance, engineering or quality systems. Each system offers a solution to a particular identified problem, can be justified in terms of pay back, and can be run independently of the other systems. The negative effects have not always been identified: duplication of data entry, varied operator interfaces, validity of information held on multiple systems, uncontrolled reporting sequences.

Transfer of information between them is now recognised as a standard requirement for future systems. The reason for the move towards totally integrated information systems lies in the need for enhanced control over the business and its component activities, which can only be achieved through the access of information by all levels of staff for operational or decision-making purposes. 6 Utilise a modular platform Due to the range and scope of IT supplier products, and the ever-changing technical environment, modularity is seen as a hedge against evolving products, and as a method of incremental installation.
