Responsibility for someone else’s product means co-manufacturers must consistently reassure a customer’s lower level of involvement. Maintain precise control across various product lines so you can ramp up production with efficiency that extends savings to customers.
Execute on programs driven by your customers with real-time visibility across each shift, line, department, and plant.
Ensure high standards during quick production line changes through digitized quality tracking and proactive risk mitigation.
Meet unique customer specifications and reporting requirements with organized data from any product, process, or form.
Focus on your bottom line with tools that target areas of waste, minimize supply chain risk, and increase energy efficiency.
Make the Unbelievable Achievable
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.
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 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.
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.
