Staying competitive amidst increasing regulation

Each manufacturer within the food and beverage industry is working to retain its competitive advantage while dealing with evolving local and federal regulations. Regardless of where you are on your modernization journey, without the right people and infrastructure in place you may be inadvertently introducing regulatory, quality, and cyber risks. ACE will help you develop a roadmap to modernize your plant floor OT assets, and then leverage the resultant information into an MES. The data is then contextualized as information and conveyed to those who need it most, meeting your Industry 4.0 initiatives, providing real-time analytics, dashboards, and KPIs. This will empower your team to sustainably increase throughput without sacrificing quality.

Using ERP Effectively at the Plant Floor

Many in the industry utilize ERP systems to manage orders and track inventory. Manufacturers without a connection between the ERP and the plant floor depend on operators to manually transfer information, introducing latency, human error, and inefficiencies. ACE addresses these concerns by configuring interfaces to exchange information between your manufacturing systems.

Don’t Get Frustrated by Old Systems

The industry is rife with old, obsolete, unsupported, and deprecated control systems, leading to higher maintenance costs and greater downtime due to equipment failure. ACE will work with you to survey your plant floor to determine obsolescence and develop a strategy for modernization. Typically, processors can be upgraded without an entire rip & replace of IO racks and control panels. Using a phased approach, engineering and maintenance can limit the downtime to production and still improve the floor.
