In this blog, we explain how to implement Industry 4.0 to reap the manufacturing benefits of digital transformation. These six steps will ensure your team avoids the missteps many process manufacturers make.
All equipment fails at some point if it’s not properly maintained. That’s why daily production schedules rely on maintenance that is precisely timed. Typical maintenance programs have waste and unnecessary downtime. Predictive maintenance is a new approach that can increase operational reliability with or without new technology.
If you can’t find pathogens in your plant, you’re not looking hard enough. Each year, the U.S. tracks approximately 48 million cases of food borne illnesses that result in 128,000 hospitalizations and 3,000 deaths. Globally, those numbers spike to 600 million cases per year and 420,000 deaths. Effective environmental monitoring programs that prevent these outbreaks depend on practices that are understood company-wide.
Trying to stay one step ahead of daily production goals can seem as achievable and realistic as looking into a crystal ball — particularly when manufacturers aren’t using integrated systems with access to customer-driven, real-time data.
