Paper-based quality management, evolving compliance, low throughput, and plant floor inefficiencies can impede Food & Beverage performance. Flexible to automate, measure, and manage what matters, SafetyChain helps you drive leaner and more efficient operations, spurring change on the floor.
Diminish the margin of error by ensuring precise quality control and proactive risk mitigation at every step of the production process.
Reduce costs with efficient management of materials, labor, and equipment, from sourcing to finished product.
Improve line performance and equipment availability by enabling operators to reduce waste and minimize unplanned downtime.
Stay ahead of regulatory requirements and streamline audits through paperless processes and digitized documents.
Make the Unbelievable Achievable
Compliance Management: Ensure personnel, processes, and finished goods are in compliance throughout receiving, production, and pre-shipment. Adhere to FSMA, SQF, BRC, HACCP, and more.
Real-Time Food Safety Monitoring: Receive immediate alerts and notifications for any deviations from critical control points (CCPs) or quality standards, allowing for swift corrective action.
Automated Audit Readiness and Documentation: Streamline third-party audits with full version control, and alleviate the burden on Quality by providing auditors secure access to discrete information and CAPA records.
Supplier Management: Streamline supplier communication, capture and track critical documentation, and drive corrective actions while complying with ISO, FSMA, and other regulatory standards.
Risk Management: Oversee the plant’s potential exposure to external risk factors, from suppliers and ingredients, to improve root cause analysis and evaluation of current and future suppliers.
Supplier Traceability: Capture all FSQA record data for root cause analysis and integrate with existing tools that track logistics for complete supply chain visibility.
Quality and Yield Optimization: Maximize product quality and yield with tailored dashboards for analyzing batch data and production trends. Reduce waste, energy consumption, and operational costs.
Real-time Control: Ensure product consistency and safety by continuously monitoring critical quality parameters. Detect deviations promptly to prevent quality issues, saving on costly inspections, rework, and rejections.
Efficient Process Management: Streamline production processes and tighten variability with Statistical Process Control (SPC). Empower operators with real-time data monitoring, and the ability to identify and rectify non-conformances quickly.
Streamlined Workflow Management: Enhance process efficiency to reduce shipping discrepancies, automate task handling for prompt issue resolution, and ensure compliance while maximizing plant capacity.
Real-time Production Analysis: Tailored dashboards to track and visualize manufacturing losses, throughput and floor metrics, and product quality. Accurately assess and compare how efficiently any plant is running at any given time.
Downtime Monitoring: Identify issues impacting productivity, enhance capacity utilization, and reduce disruptions in production by addressing downtime events and unplanned maintenance promptly.
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE): Trend critical live measures of throughput, availability, and quality within the production process to ensure run rates are in line with demand.
Proactive Maintenance: Monitor equipment in real-time to see when equipment is running, paused, or ready for work, and support Total Effective Equipment Performance (TEEP).
Automated (IoT) Data Capture: Automate the capture of digital data from equipment to support critical quality and production use cases, such as process parameters, weight catches, pH, and more.
Traceability: Quickly unify and associate data and identifiers (such as batch/lot numbers, IDs, etc.) with any process documented by your team during the production cycle.
Resource Management: Verify and validate formula parameters and compliance when product is in 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.
Marel: Combine FSQA data and processes with Food Processing Software (MES) to increase yield and maximize productivity.
