Improving milk bottling production and increasing machine utilization through AI + IoT.
Pasteurized whole milk has a shelf life of 12 to 14 days, whereas the shelf life of skimmed and flavoured milks is even shorter. Since dairy production operates on slim margins and there are few avenues for rework in a bottling plant, factories must process product quickly and with as little waste as possible.
Whilst many milk bottling facilities are technically advanced, due to having to meet the highest food handling standards, they do not necessarily have the money to invest in production and OEE monitoring. With that in mind, how can a bottler achieve real-time continuous monitoring so that they can improve overall profitability, all with minimal investment?
