Refine Quality While Reducing Cost

  • Tighten Process Controls: Address and monitor the intricate demands of temperature-sensitive packaging, pressure control, fill level accuracy, sealing, and more.

  • Fine-tune Inspection: Track and trend quality check data at various stages to identify raw material non-conformance and reduce defects per million.

  • Reduce waste: Enable your frontline to identify and rectify issues in real time, handling material inconsistency and elevating product quality across the manufacturing process.

  • Optimize Yield: Maximize product quality and yield with tailored dashboards for analyzing batch data and production trends. Reduce waste, energy consumption, and operational costs.

Improve Plant Visibility and Delivery Time

  • Downtime Monitoring: Identify issues impacting productivity, enhance capacity utilization, and reduce disruptions in production by addressing downtime events and unplanned maintenance promptly.

  • Real-Time Productivity Analysis: Track and visualize critical live measures of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (throughput, availability, and quality) within the production process. Accurately assess how efficiently any 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.

  • Shipment Updates: Understand when timelines are at risk and proactively alert customers well in advance to make necessary adjustments.

  • Customer Satisfaction: Centralize all critical data, enabling a comprehensive view of customer interactions, technical calls, and inbound notes to organize feedback and pinpoint areas for improvement.

  • Customer-Centric Reporting: Generate customized reports and insights that provide your customers with valuable data and analytics.

Ensure Regulatory Compliance

  • Compliance Management: Ensure personnel, processes, and finished goods are in compliance throughout receiving, production, and pre-shipment. Adhere to a comprehensive array of standards and regulations such as USDA, FDA, FTC, and more.

  • Document Control and Audit Readiness: Streamline third-party and internal audits with a digital document repository. Alleviate the burden on Quality by providing auditors secure access to discrete information and historical records.

  • Labeling Accuracy: manage data from pre-printed items and nutritional labels to stay compliant with USDA, FDA, and customer standards.

  • EHS and Sanitation: Fulfill reporting requirements for waste and recycling regulations, and ensure sanitation methods are up-to-date with raw material packaging.

  • Supplier Management: Streamline 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, from suppliers and ingredients, to improve root cause 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 key parameters like material usage, package weight, and quality metrics to enhance packaging process efficiency.

  • 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 raw material, batch/lot numbers, 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.
