Our third example, also at a fresh packer, shows the value gained from monitoring and reacting to incoming product quality. Here the incoming defect level was expected to be 10% but TOMRA Insight revealed it to be significantly higher, at 16%. This information flagged-up that there was a problem somewhere – perhaps an operator mistake with the sorter settings, or the machinery wasn’t cleaned well enough, or the machine had a technical problem. By looking for, finding, and solving the problem, the packhouse was able to reduce saleable raw materials losses by more than €1,000 during every eight-hour shift.
These examples (and many more) show how digital transformation can take processors and packhouses into a more efficient future, and that future starts right now. What businesses might initially see as a nice productivity bonus will become essential to retaining competitiveness before too long.
