Increasing productivity and profitability

Today’s Food and Beverage manufacturing facilities are held at extremely strict standards that are being met and regulated through automation.  There is also consistent pressure from the competition to improve product nutrition, taste, and integrity – all while keeping pricing low and food safe.  Achieving efficiency, keeping costs low and maintaining quality is the balance that leads to success.

Always-on availability is vital

Automation is a great solution for meeting these standards while keeping costs, waste, and prices low.  However, when issues occur within these facilities, the results can be devastating.  Downtime can at best reduce efficiency and at worst support contamination, make consumers sick and destroy brand integrity.  Many food and beverage companies have tried but failed to solve these problems with conventional servers running critical applications such as SCADA and historian in multiple locations. Downtime problems continually plague this approach and it doesn’t scale.  When systems fail, even for a short period, your bottom line is going to be affected.
