ABSTRACT

Beverage manufacturer in India is using Industry 4.0 to ensure the authenticity of the manufacturing process.

Problem:

The beverage manufacturer of a popular brand in India wanted to ensure the authenticity of the process followed to produce the beverage. But the manufacturer had no visibility to the process followed in the plant and had to depend on the quality engineers for the data.

The quality engineers at the plant were instructed to monitor, record the data every 15 minutes and then submit a report. This process involved a lot of manual work and was an ordeal for quality engineers.

The quality engineers also found it hard to find the root cause for troubleshooting in case of deviation from standards, as there was no indication of deviation. For all the above reasons the plant manager in consensus with the top management considered installing Industry 4.0 solution at the plant.

METI’s Solution

METI engineers installed the Industry 4.0 process monitoring solution at the plant after careful analysis. The solution allows quality control engineers to monitor all the critical process parameters (CPP) remotely.

Monitoring CPP on a dashboard has made it easy for the quality engineers to troubleshoot and take timely actions if there is any deviation in the process standards. The solution also generates instant reports that could be submitted to the top management when needed.

The remote monitoring feature allows the top management to get visibility to the beverage processing and ensure the authenticity of the process followed for every beverage shipped.

Our industry 4.0 solution has eliminated the need for recording the data manually every 15 minutes by visiting the production plant and has brought in change to the work culture. Quality engineers having access to our solution now feel accountable and inspired to work for the reason that they can take data-driven decision to improve and sustain their company’s products.
