Being the operations manager of a food manufacturing facility is a strenuous role. There are numerous opportunities for small issues to escalate to points in which critical production time is lost or irreversible damage is caused. Luckily, there are many resources for operations managers in the food processing industry to utilize to continue to efficiently produce while overcoming any problems that may arise.

Below are a Few Valuable Resources for the Food Manufacturing Operations Manager 

 

Understanding the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is defined as “a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.” This system of data transfer is revolutionizing the food manufacturing industry. Easily accessible information allows operations managers to implement extremely beneficial practices such as true predictive maintenance and remotely controlled operations. IIoT has caused considerable growth to the food manufacturing industry and has lead the industry to a digital industrial transformation.

The Value of Analytics

The key part of the IIoT in food manufacturing is the use of analytics. Analytics are “the use of mathematics, statistics, predictive modeling and machine learning to find patterns in data.” The use of real-time analytics enables operations managers to monitor production, track overall performance, and make continuous improvements. When an operations manager can quickly and easily access real-time analytics, issues can be immediately resolved while reducing product waste, downtime, and overtime. Developing a system for monitoring analytics is a crucial part in maintaining an effective and profitable food manufacturing facility.
