4 Benefits of Digital Transformation


in Food and Beverage Manufacturing

At the Innovation Summit: Software Conference in San Antonio, we will be discussing the challenges  food and beverage manufacturers face including pressure on margins from volatile commodity prices, changes in consumer demands, and regulatory compliance related to food safety. If you work in food and beverage manufacturing I encourage you to join us to hear how our customers are addressing these challenges by making the most out of existing investments and improving operational efficiency through digital transformation.

Digital transformation enabled by the Industrial IoT, cloud, mobility and advanced analytics solutions, empowers food and beverage manufacturers to transform their businesses and achieve significant value. Read this post to learn about the four key benefits our customers experience when embarking on a digital transformation journey and what you can expect to learn at the upcoming Innovation Summit: Software Conference.

Improve Operational Performance

With the help of Schneider Electric, manufacturers are able to improve operational efficiency, increase revenue and maintain customer satisfaction through the digital transformation of their processes. This is possible through a model-driven software approach to standardizing global practices and reducing the total cost of ownership. Hear firsthand, how our customers have achieved increases in productivity, yield and reduction in operating costs in our Food and Beverage Industry Innovation track on Tuesday, October 3.

Maximize Asset Reliability

At the Innovation Summit: Software Conference, attendees will learn how our customers have seen up to 30% increase in equipment uptime, decreased downtime by more than 50% and improvements in Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) by up to 20%.

Improving asset reliability empowers manufacturers to manage constraints on capital investments and increase production output from existing assets. Manufacturers have been able to defer costly investment in new assets by reducing unplanned downtime, improving equipment effectiveness and increasing productivity with a reduction in waste.

Provide Consumer Traceability and Quality

Discover our solutions for quality management and traceability, including how our customers have seen 30% improvement in quality and reduced traceability time for finished goods from 4 hours to 1 minute.

Poor quality, contaminated, mislabeled, or counterfeit goods that reach the consumer can cause a significant impact to a business, destroying trust in the brand. Digitizing end-to-end traceability and quality documentation prevents suspect products from reaching the consumer, enables adherence to quality and safety regulatory compliance standards and ultimately preserves brand equity while building trust and improving satisfaction among consumers. 

Increase Recipe Agility

By digitizing recipe management processes, our customers have seen a 20% savings in overall manufacturing costs. 

Digital recipe management empowers manufacturers to stay flexible in the face of changing consumer demands. By securely increasing the number of product variations, reducing time to market for new product and packaging variations, and accelerating the process of new product introductions, we are allowing manufacturers to retain a competitive edge in the food and beverage market.
