Maintenance management in the food and beverage industry is unique and difficult to get right. Complex, interconnected assets must be used to produce items that are high quality and safe to consume. What’s more, frequent cleaning introduces a wet environment that accelerates equipment degradation and puts food and employee safety at risk. On top of this, food processors must adhere to considerable regulatory requirements, as well as consumer and societal expectations.
Given these unique circumstances, organizations must closely manage their maintenance operations. This requires advanced CMMS and EAM asset management capabilities that enable plants to maintain or improve their production levels and – by extension – their revenue.
