The new cloud software platform collects big data from the dairy supply chain: from farmer to industrial dairy manufacturing. Powered by artificial intelligence techniques, the platform is an innovative breakthrough to provide new insights to dairy cooperations, manufacturers, branche associations and food safety institutes.
Operations Manager Arie van Aalst had everything running smoothly in his brand new dairy factory. Or so he thought. Until that one day in spring, when everything was turned upside down by an outbreak of Salmonella. Months later, when the factory was allowed to restart, he had learned a valuable lesson. The canary in the coal mine had definitely sent a signal… So why did this remain undetected?
A small example of smart use of factory data: a Food manufacturer recently discovered that the CIP-tank cleanings (cleaning-in-place) took 5 minutes longer than before. After investigation, they solved the issue and they won 4 hours of production time per week!
CIP duration trending reports in the HAI smart4industries software triggered this investigation.
