Food industry is not only a behemoth in itself (accounting for more volume than any other industry), but a special case in itself. Some of the peculiar requirements for any manufacturing software to serve this industry properly includes:

Cost Containment

For any food company, cost is a constant focus. Margins are very slim. A saving of a penny per unit may substantially affect your bottom line. This is an industry which operates on fixed revenue and final product price is not in hands of the manufacturer.

Change Management

Food products change all the time. It's the nature of the business. New brands, and even line extensions (product variations) launch every day. New formulas, new production methods, and new characteristics. A manufacturer needs to be able to meet the challenges posed by change. Fast-moving consumer trends mean changes in products, packaging, strategies and other parts of the total product offering. Food companies buy and sell brands, plants, etc. frequently. They introduce and discontinue products constantly. All these logistical demands require agility on the part of a meat processing plant.

Channel Complexity

Customers play an increasing role in the manufacture of meat products. Packaging is just one area where customers have gained influence over the manufacture of finished product. With increasing channel complexity, meat processors need the ability to provide customers with a diverse set of packaging options, including

  • Tracking product in various package sizes (from individual serving packages for consumers to bulk packages for processors and food service providers)
  • Special labeling requirements for customers
  • International/domestic packaging

Manufacturing Challenges

As distribution processes become streamlined, a shorter supply chain eventually pushes back into the manufacturing plant. Plant executives need systems to respond to that demand for shorter response times. Variable customer requirements, reduced inventory levels, ever-changing schedules and shorter production runs also impact plant operations - and necessitate the use of automation to ensure peak efficiency. The food industry is experiencing a trend toward vertical integration, with many of the large players now running lines proceeding from farming operations to final processing. Thus, these companies face very real challenges of streamlining/combining operations - and then aligning information with integrated systems. Moreover, with rapid innovations over the past few years, developments in automation and control have resulted in a drastic reduction in labor, and the widespread use of process control planning systems. Optimization Engine for Food Industry is the only solution to provide automated planning & scheduling software to enable the shop floor executives to see a clear picture in a haze of frantic activities on the shop floor.

In all the hectic and changing environment, if you do not have a reliable system which can create fast schedules for the day, week and a month ahead, you can only hope to survive another day. Thanks to Optimization Engine for Food Industry, this dooms day prophecy can be prevented.
