Food & Beverage and CPG challenges

Increase visibility

For many food manufacturing companies, the majority of the workforce is on the plant floor, working at individual pieces of equipment or on production lines. Establishing near real-time visibility into equipment health can empower operators to quickly identify problems and decrease unplanned downtime.

Optimize operations

By integrating and analyzing the data being generated on production lines, improvements can be made across plants including on batch variation, ingredient consumption, quality costs, waste, and management of abnormal situations. Optimizing food and beverage and CPG manufacturing also alleviates knowledge gaps between experienced and new operators.

Improve quality and output

By monitoring the health of your equipment and production lines with industrial applications, food and beverage manufacturers and CPG companies can shift from schedule-based maintenance practices to more of a condition-based or preventative maintenance practices. This helps eliminate vulnerabilities in the production lines—improving both product quality and output.
