Real-Time Technology To Enable Business Transformation And HACCP Analysis For Food Manufacturers

The food and beverage industry has historically used historian-based technology to optimize and troubleshoot production processes by looking at time-series based process variable trends. During the same time, good manufacturing practices (GMPs) have largely relied on using paper-based standard operating procedures (SOPs) and manual data collection to manage quality and production activities. By adding electronic workflow management capability, GMPs, regulatory requirements and electronic forms can replace paper-based standard operating procedures and deliver an electronic system of record that embed all manufacturing rules, exceptions and escalation processes.
