Optimize manufacturing operations through automation

The global COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated economic contraction around the world. CPG manufacturers are racing to invest in digital technologies that provide measurable financial results and meet critical business needs.

As the CPG industry navigates how to operate in the new normal, manufacturers should accelerate plans to digitize, automate and unlock new manufacturing capabilities.

Why now?

  • Manufacturers must abide by new social distancing requirements and safety guidelines in factories and facilities
  • Advancements in IoT technology and platforms are making it easier to connect legacy assets across multiple technology platforms
  • Volumes of data across all functions can provide actionable insights about products, customers, consumers and operations​

Smart connected operations is the ability to connect process and data across the enterprise using digital technologies to uncover new insights, improve decision making, and reduce time and cost. These technologies connect the enterprise across all functions including product development, manufacturing, operations, supply chain and sales and marketing.

A focus on smart connected manufacturing operations can help CPG companies improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), decrease enterprise risk and return measurable shareholder value as the world begins to adjust to the new post COVID-19 new normal.

Smart Connected Manufacturing Addresses These CPG Business Needs

Improve quality, safety and transparency of manufactured products and ingredients.

Become more agile and flexible to react to fluctuating demand of SKUs and an accelerated increase of demand through ecommerce and other non-traditional retail channels.

Innovate with new business models and manufacturing operations that meet consumer demands for highly customized, safe and sustainable products.
