Dairy Industry

The Dairy Industry can be challenging. You need to comply with strict food safety regulations and you have to deal with varying composition of the milk. Nevertheless you need to produce the expected volumes and – even more challenging – a consistent end-product quality. Whether you produce cheese, milk powder, infant nutrition, whey products, yoghurt, deserts, or any type of fresh or long-life milk, the production process conditions are demanding and require full control at all times.

Meanwhile you’re surely focused on getting the most out of your installations, you are always trying to increase your volumes and you need to deal with unplanned downtimes. And what about optimizing yield, moisture content, end-product weight control, and improving your product quality performance?

Yes! It is a challenging game. And to perform as the best in this game you need to have a perfect insight into the characteristics of your incoming milk and other ingredients, processing conditions within your factory, operator observations, and in the end your product quality performance. Dealing with kilograms and liters in parallel, calculating fat- and protein- content at all times, and – in the end – knowing exactly your actual cost-price per product and batch.

The HAI smart4industries software collects all these data, identifies anomalies in real-time, and provides trending and in-depths statistics and analysis. You are the expert, we provide you with the information you need to be successful.

Quote from a cheese technologist:

“We have substantially improved our yield in our cheese factory. How? We introduced in-line measurements on cheese before brine, and this helps us to identify in an early stage if we need to make adjustments to our processes. We have improved our capacity to produce close to target on moisture content. This is an immediate and substantial saving.”

   What you’ll have

  • One database with production & quality data from multiple sources:
    SCADA/PLC/Historian, SKU/batchnumbers, Lab test results, Operator Logsheets, In-line Process Control records, Microbiology Lab results, etc.
  • Your current paperbased records for organoleptic tests, operator control points (CCP’s), start-up checklists, cleaning records and excel sheets can be replaced by the abovementioned database.
  • Trending, correlations and other SPC analyses for trouble shooting, process improvement opportunities, etc.
  • Use your in-line product quality measurements (like NIR, pH, moisture weights, etc.) for real-time predictive analytics on your end-product moisture, pH, weights, etc.
  • Connections to your lab instruments, like Milkoscan, Lactoscope, Foodscan, etc.
  • Automatic handling of QLIP sample requests, and analysis results
  • OEE on your process & downtime analyses
  • Real-time compliance display for process conditions & quality
  • Early warning system to prevent out-of-spec
  • Tracking & Tracing, exceptions reports, cost-price validation, etc.
  • A Plant BI-Tool for all your plant reports and dashboards

   Your benefits

  • In case of any questions, quality issues or complaints: no more extensive searching in operator control records, SCADA, ERP, Excel and lab systems. All the information you need immediately available in one database: one mouse click away!
  • Reduce rejected batches (wrong protein/fat ratio, visco, moisture, etc.)
  • Find optimum process settings for fast and stable production
  • Improve product quality consistency
  • Minimize downtimes/maximize speed/improve OEE
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Optimize your CIP process and your maintenance strategy
  • Unparalleled insight into the performance of your installations for sterilisation, pasteurisation, coagulation, mixing, processing, cooling, cheese production, treatment, ripening and slicing, filling, packing, etc.

80% of my time was lost on combining data from operator logs, excel, historian, scada and quality test results. After “cleaning” these data, I could finally start analyzing the data, and find answers to my questions. Now I can concentrate 100% on analysis and interpretation of the data.”
