Food & Beverage Industry

The Food Industry can be challenging. You need to comply with food safety regulations and you may have to deal with varying product quality of your raw materials. Nevertheless you need to produce a consistent end-product quality.

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 your 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 your incoming raw material characteristics, processing conditions, operator observations, and in the end your product quality performance.

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 Sander Huitink, Food Safety and Quality Manager at KraftHeinz Company:

“We wanted more than just going paperless. Rather than correcting issues afterwards, we wanted to prevent issues by using predictive analytics. For instance, by having a trend line on pH behavior, we can adjust the process in time to prevent out of spec at a later stage.”

   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 measurements (like in-line moisture, pH or brix) for real-time predictive analytics on your end-product moisture, pH or brix.
  • OEE on your process & downtime analyses
  • Real-time compliance display for process conditions & quality
  • Early warning system to prevent out-of-spec
  • Tracking & Tracing, exception 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 the Cost of Non Quality (rejected batches)
  • Find optimum process settings for fast and stable production
  • Improve product quality consistency
  • Minimize downtimes/maximize speed/improve OEE
  • Reduce utility consumption and optimize end-product weights
  • Optimize yield on raw materials and prevent unplanned breakdowns
  • Unparalleled insight into the performance of your processes

“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.”
