Potential for improvement
We visit many companies that often make beautiful and tasty products. When we walk through the factory and talk to people, we also see a huge potential for improvement on the floor and in the supporting departments. Often, there are also a number of improvement initiatives underway, such as “Lean” or “Six Sigma”. We also see that the possibilities offered by modern IT applications are insufficiently recognised and utilised. This is the area we focus on: Improving production processes through the effective application of information technology.
The challenges for the food industry
The challenges facing the food industry are great:
- Regulations – both internal and external – are becoming increasingly stringent
- The market is becoming more and more dynamic
- Cost pressures are increasing
- Delivery times must be shorter and more reliable
These developments are also noticeable on the work floor:
- The number of different products and raw materials is increasing
- The number of product and line changes is increasing
- The administrative workload is increasing
- More must be done with fewer people
The current systems (IT and paper-based) are reaching their limits. It is becoming increasingly difficult to prevent a deterioration in efficiency, an increase in errors, more reprocessing and a reduction in delivery reliability.
Good solutions available
At the same time, we are seeing more and more good standard applications coming onto the market that allow manufacturing companies to take huge steps forward. Applications that already offer very rich standard functionality and are fully geared to the wishes and requirements in the food industry. It is also becoming increasingly easy to allow applications to work together so that business processes can be supported integrally.
For companies, they are one-off projects
Most companies have little experience with IT projects in the production environment. The consideration then is whether to employ (scarce) expert specialists and experienced project leaders or to hire them for the time required.
Greywise offers those services that help companies with the design and realisation of a good application landscape in the production environment.
On the side of the customer
Greywise does not supply IT solutions itself but is on the side of the customer during the entire process from setting up a good IT strategy to successfully bringing an application live. The applications are supplied and implemented by System Integrators selected with the support of Greywise.
