Customized Analytics for Business Process Improvement

Highlights

In 2009, we were contacted by a leading food and agricultural company with global retail brand recognition. They intended to enhance the poultry production process by utilizing advanced analytics.

Challenge

Customer Challenge

Improve business processes for poultry deboning and portioning departments.

Project Objective

Keep the client fully informed about business and production processes for poultry deboning and portioning.

Solution

To have an opportunity to optimize processes, the client needed to have all relevant information on what’s going on in the enterprise. To provide this, we designed and developed a desktop application that automatically collects, stores, and analyzes the data from the production line for deboning and portioning, as well as relevant enterprise files. 

The delivered app allowed the client to monitor:

  • Yield 

  • Faulty production

  • Safety incidents

  • Staff turnover

For the app to be used by quality engineers, enterprise analysts, and other interested staff, each user category was granted specific access rights. They can download the app to their devices and are authorized by login and password. The GUI of the app supports a touch screen as well. 

For the convenient monitoring of business processes, the app provides the following:

  • Generating and displaying reports in the form of charts

  • Printing the created reports

  • Search for selected data records

  • Input, modification, or deletion of the data records

Thus, the application allows the client to monitor productivity and efficiency indexes on a daily and weekly basis.
