Dashboards reduce product giveaway at Avara Foods
Limiting product giveaway with dashboard technology
At Avara Foods (previously known as Faccenda Foods) in Telford, SI has combined its live shop floor data with the latest in dashboard technology. Large-scale dashboards have been installed at strategic locations throughout Avara’s poultry processing facility and back office operations.
SI’s dashboards are providing KPI data about the performance of each line, detailing the giveaway results for the previous half an hour.
“From raw material intake to end-of-line packing; we know what we’ve produced, all the weights and resulting giveaway.” Avara Foods.
As David McCarthy, Production Systems Manager explains: “With SI’s help, we’ve created a really useful tool using our data, to support the production and planning teams across the business.
“By visualising key metrics, such as product giveaway and poultry processing line performance, our line managers and operatives can see in what direction the giveaway is going. They can then make the relevant changes to optimise performance and reduce product giveaway.”
“Now, we have a much bigger picture of our overall performance, which is excellent.” Avara Foods.
“More than that, all our KPI dashboards are displayed on the factory floor, at exactly where differences can be made. For example, within the factory it’s made a real difference at our poultry boning section.
“Now, everyone is the factory clearly informed about progress. It’s made a real impact on our productivity, efficiency and on our margins”.
