In particular the food processing and animal feed industries are faced with growing demands from authorities and from the market for traceability, process history and documentation. At Daniit, we have developed a concept with a basic structure that can be applied to all types of industries with a need to chart their production processes from raw material to finished product.
In addition to meeting legislative requirements, data collection may entail a host of quality-related and cost-saving advantages - both in relation to suppliers and end-users. For example, the withdrawal of goods may be reduced due to easy traceability of quality problem origins. Thereby, it becomes possible to identify the specific products affected. Moreover, loss of prestige is minimised and the supplier at fault may be called to account for delivering faulty raw materials.
Because errors are discovered and corrected instantly, complete alarm monitoring of production plants is an effective way to achieve quality assurance. In addition, alarm system history is gathered and incorporated in the overall documentation of the production flow.
Asphalt manufacturers, for example, benefit greatly from Daniit's alarm system. Laying of a faulty asphalt batch can be an extremely costly affair: A completely new, fault-free batch must be produced and the faulty batch must be taken up and removed before the replacement batch can be laid.
Data collection helps minimize losses relating to faulty productions.
Alarm monitoring assures timely error correction - and saves costs.
