Challenge

A leading food and beverage manufacturer experienced an inconsistency in their raw materials leading to quality assurance issues. The company needed to gain control over the raw materials to produce close to 100% acceptable finished products. Raw materials are extremely expensive, so producing finished goods with the wrong recipe leads to massive losses for the company.

Solution

PlantSharp Core and PlantSharp Lab provide the ability to create dynamic recipes, automatic recipes based on raw material consistency. If the raw materials are not potent or sweet enough for example, the system automatically adjusts the quantities in the recipe in real-time to match the correct formulas necessary to create the final product.

  • The PlantSharp Suite’s agile and adjustable functions helped to improve the efficiency of the manufacturing plant
  • Significant savings of money and time on manual labor
  • Prevented 10% of quality assurance issues in comparison to the year prior to installing PlantSharp.
