We help companies protect their brand reputation by reducing process variability and improving first pass quality with advanced process control (APC).
Delivering consistent quality and protecting brand equity in consumer goods and retail has become a painful balancing act.
Supply chain disruptions mean raw material costs are soaring. Changing consumer preferences are increasing scrutiny over sustainability practices. Increased demand means equipment is running at peak capacity.
The workforce is also feeling the strain, resulting in peak turnover rates and loss of critical manufacturing knowledge.
Real-time optimization of your processes helps you navigate these challenges and protect your brand by maximizing quality and yield of your existing products.
- 3-5% increase in throughput and capacity with existing assets
- Up to 60% reduction in off-spec product
- Up to 60% increase in first pass quality
- 0.15%-0.25% increase in yield
- 2%-5% less energy needed per ton/LB
Benefits of Process Control & Optimization
Maximize your existing assets without spending capital on staffing new lines or adding new equipment
Model predictive control (MPC) means you gain better control over quality limits and targets
Reduce give-away by running processes closer to spec limits (increase moisture content, improve raw material recovery)
Continuously Improve Operational Efficiency
Empower workforce with real-time intelligence
Measurably improve energy and water use while producing more, better quality product
How We Help Companies Deploy Process Control & Optimization
We improve yield and throughput, and reduce process variability by modeling your operations and deriving predictions to enable closed loop control of your current process systems.
Dryers & Evaporators
Deliver consistent output to meet product specifications by optimizing moisture removal and energy use
Improve solids non-fat content of cream/milk to reduce give-away and increase production yields by harmonizing with product specifications and industry standards
Ensure most efficient use of raw materials to meet recipe quality with continuous blending optimization
Food Line Optimization
Drive to target run totals, quality and yield KPIs by delivering the best throughput with improved process unit control and line balancing
Deliver upstream consistency of product to improve fill efficiency and tighter control in the packaging area for filling effort
