How to improve manufacturing yield, safety, quality, and compliance by making sense of your data.

 The essence of the Manufacturing 4.0 revolution is connectedness, where machines, people and processes can be connected across the supply chain to break down data silos.

As a result, you can improve yield and quality like never before, while mitigating risk of recalls, saving cost and harmonizing operations.

Why material intelligence is this key technology we need to reach Industry 4.0 Smart Manufacturing.

Material coarseness or consistency directly affects machine performance and premature degradation. In the consumer-packaged goods industry, product freshness or ingredient makeup can cause quality problems or recalls due to contamination or mislabeling of allergy causing ingredients. Off spec material can result in the generation of waste or additional energy needed to process.
