Industry 4.0's Impact on Food Industry

By Food and Beverages | Friday, May 31, 2019

FREMONT, CA: The food and beverage business is moving towards a wholly associated manufacturing system with more options available to automate data collection than ever before. In the contemporary fourth wave of production, new technology is driving the change in output by taking a jump from more conventional automation to a fully flexible and connected system.

Through more sensors, analytics, and breakthroughs in robotics and AI, the future food and beverage plants will be able to meet customers’ demands for higher-quality goods while escalating productivity. And new technological ventures in this industry often result from the need to attain compliance or fill a customer’s requirement.

Automated Data Collection:

Facilities receive goods from a complex supply chain that spans over vast distribution networks, thus making automated data collection a necessity. By knowing the operation of different parts of the facility, plant managers can formulate changes that will optimize the potential from the production line.

To get the most out of operations is one of the most commonly cited requirements of food and beverage manufacturers. One of the preeminent ways to attain optimum results is by enhancing plant efficiencies and setting baselines and goals. The key here is not to detain efficiencies to just one area of the facility but to expand the reach to include end-to-end processes, from provider to consumer.

Shortfalls of Industrial Automation:

While evaluating the extent of the operation, all areas of the facility should be assessed in terms of data collection. Part of the information assessment is to learn what processes are not covered by automated data collection. One solution to the problem can be found in capturing data via mobile devices.

As food and beverage developing plants continue to automate their data collection and gradually connect their production processes, more data will come online in a large number of ways, allowing for better resolutions. Eventually, this is the reason why digital transformation promises a high-level of food safety and quality in the future.
