In beverage production, all parties involved are interdependent. For example, a farmer who grows apples and wants to sell them as juice is dependent on the bottle manufacturer and a juice bottler. If these three do not communicate with each other, uncertain quantities and capacities arise for all parties involved. This leads to inefficiency and the need to store products temporarily.
In order to coordinate the dependencies efficiently, continuous data collection is necessary. This are automatically exchanged between the actors. In the example of apple juice production, the harvest quantity and delivery date are recorded in one data record. This is automatically sent to the actors involved, the bottle manufacturer and the juice bottler. The juice bottler then completes the data with information on its production capacity.
Advantages of the Data Intelligence Hub
With the automated data exchange through the Data Intelligence Hub, all participants benefit. This is because planning and storage are optimised so that no raw materials go bad or have to be stored temporarily for long and cost-intensive periods. Thanks to the Data Intelligence Hub’s role and rights system, those involved in the production chain only have access to necessary data. Data protection is thus guaranteed. If the intelligent solution is used, information on availability and filling capacity can be made available at any time, guaranteed.
