Food and beverage industry

Did you know:

  1. Every year, $8 billion is invested in new products or processes in the food and beverage industry, only in the United States?
  2. The food and beverage industry in the UK has invested in research and development worth £ 425 million in 2013?

Profitability is the main objective for any factory in the industry of food and beverage. To reach it, each member of the production team have to deal with different challenges and collaborate seamlessly with the other members of the team. Even if they work according to laws and strict standards, flexibility is needed in order to keep up with new products and innovations in the market. In this case, process control becomes vital.

Under the motto “Invest a bit, to save a lot”, bitYes will provide applications for monitoring and control of the processes, which take into account the challenges of production and the 5 key factors for profitable operations:

  • optimized production costs
  • high productivity
  • quality consistency
  • standards compliance
  • customer satisfaction

Do these challenges sound familiar to you? You are one step away from the application that will help the technical team to achieve the performance desired.

Applications:

The proposed solution provides flexibility in the integration of machines and existing equipment through the over 300 industrial protocols, and in the same time in compliance with international standards of HACCP and ISO 9000 up to ISO 22000 and FDA regulations.

Examples of applications from the food and beverage industry:

  • Productivity reporting and monitoring
  • Supervisory and control of process parameters that interfere with product quality
  • Automation of transport and packing processes
  • Defining and control of production recipes
  • Products inspection
  • Energy and utility consumption monitoring

What you get from implementing this application:

  • Clear vision over productivity and quality
  • User customized reporting, from operators to managers
  • Motivating employees by increasing productivity and quality
  • Process control from the raw material delivery to the finished product
  • Electrical, thermal energy and water efficient use in production processes
  • Flexibility in changing lots and batches

What you miss if you do not implement this kind of application?

  • Managing production on assumptions more than on actual data collected and reported automatically
  • Not benefiting from production costs optimization
  • Products will not be competitive price-wise because of non-optimized production costs
  • No clarity over manufactured products quality and fault inspection
  • Difficulties in process identification where production is critical
