Real-time view on production and quality for Producer of Bakery Ingredients
Zwijndrecht, The Netherlands – A leading manufacturer of bakery ingredients, has started the implementation of the cloud software from HAI in Zwijndrecht, NL. With the HAI software they are building a real-time information system for production and quality. A cloud-based pilot was carried out to prove the software’s suitability..
Anticipating increasing sales volumes in the near future, the company focuses to increase production capacity without added capital investments. To this end, they selected the HAI software to provide the production personnel with real-time information and reporting of quality and OEE performance data to further improve the performance of the production units.
With ambitions set high, they set out to find a software solution that could meet their project goals, such as:
a paperless plant: the current paper based checklists for production and quality will be replaced by a truly integrated information backbone on production and quality,
trending of critical process and quality parameters,
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) reporting per product code,
unlocking process data: to remove the blinders and see the big manufacturing picture,
mass balance monitoring to identify losses, etc.
The proof of the pudding…..
The company worked together with the HAI-team to put the HAI software to the test, and make sure all the project requirements could be met. To this end, HAI provided the company with access to the cloud software to testdrive the HAI software. “In fact, we actually implemented the HAI software to demonstrate how the software would cope with the different topics”, says the Director Technique and Supply Chain. “After all, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.”
Based on the satisfactory results, the company could present a well-founded business case and project plan to the management team, and got a project approval to pursue the implementation. With the HAI software the company has a powerful, reliable system to tackle today’s challenges and stay ahead of tomorrow’s.
