Dealing with Paper-Based Processes and a Lack of Visibility
While the frozen food supplier’s facility is a highly automated one, it relies heavily on its operations team to ensure the equipment runs efficiently throughout production runs.
Whenever a machine goes down, the team would prioritize getting that machine back to an operational state to avoid additional bottlenecks within the facility.
The second issue that the frozen food supplier faced was the cumbersome and time-consuming audits that they needed to perform to comply with the stringent requirements that are present in the food and beverage industry.
These problems combined resulted in a lack of visibility into how the plant was performing and the issues that needed to be mitigated.
