Quality That Improves The Bottom Line

  • Tighten Process Controls: Implement and monitor rigorous process controls for client-specific requirements, ensuring uniform quality across all product lines, from raw material processing to final assembly.

  • Digitize Inspection: Track and trend quality check data for small batches and large-scale runs to mitigate deviations early and reduce defects per million.

  • Reduce waste: Enable your frontline to pinpoint and address inefficiencies in real-time, reducing material excess, product overruns, and energy consumption.

  • Optimize Yield: Maximize product quality and yield with tailored dashboards that analyze live batch data or production trends, and compare them to historical performance.

Operations That Promote Growth

  • Downtime Monitoring: Pinpoint and resolve productivity challenges quickly, optimize capacity utilization, and minimize line disruptions by effectively managing downtime events and unplanned maintenance.

  • Overall Equipment Effectiveness: Monitor and visualize live performance of throughput, availability, and quality across the production process. Accurately gauge how efficiently any line or plant is running at any given time.

  • Streamlined Workflow Management: Create dynamic flows that allow for separate operators to complete checks in order and with minimal interruption. Boost productivity in job shops, batch production, assembly lines, and mixed-mode manufacturing environments.

  • Timeline Updates: Proactively alert customers to make essential adjustments in advance of expected shipment delays.

  • Customer Satisfaction: Consolidate all critical data, enabling a holistic view of customer interactions, technical calls, and complaints to organize feedback and pinpoint areas for improvement.

  • Customer-Centric Reporting: Create customized dashboards and reports with insights that provide your customers data and analytics valuable to their growth.

Compliance That Secures Relationships

  • Compliance Management: Uphold stringent compliance across all plant activities, from raw material receipt to final product shipment. Adhere to each customer’s standards and regulations, such as USDA, FDA, FTC, and more.

  • Document Control and Audit Readiness: Simplify third-party and internal audits with a digital document management system. Alleviate the burden on Quality teams by allowing auditors secure access to specific information and historical records.

  • Labeling Accuracy: manage data from pre-printed items to nutritional labels so each SKU stays compliant with USDA, FDA, and customer specifications.

  • EHS and Sanitation: Meet reporting requirements for waste and recycling regulations, and keep sanitation practices in line with the latest standards. 

  • Supplier Management: Organize supplier communication, capture and track critical documentation, and drive corrective actions while complying with ISO, FDA, and other regulatory standards

  • Risk Management: Oversee the plant’s potential exposure to external risk factors, such as suppliers and ingredients, to improve issue analysis and evaluation of current and future suppliers.

  • Supplier Traceability: Capture all Quality record data for root cause analysis and integrate with existing tools that track logistics for complete supply chain visibility.

Elevate Productivity Through Integrated Data

  • Automated (IoT) Data Capture: Automate the capture of digital data from equipment, ensuring accurate records of changeover times, energy consumption, and quality metrics to ensure every element of any facility is measured and managed.

  • Maintenance: Monitor equipment in real-time and leverage data to support Total Effective Equipment Performance (TEEP).

  • Traceability: Quickly unify and associate data and identifiers (such as batch/lot info, etc.) with any process documented by your team during the production cycle.

  • API Library: Exchange data with ERP and MES solutions through flexible APIs that can be coded to various use cases, and ensure consistent data across the plant.

  • Inductive Automation (Ignition): Enable machine data captured by Ignition to drive actions within the SafetyChain platform, automating essential plant processes such as quality checks and live OEE monitoring.
