IT’s central role in the smart food factory and its ability to deliver efficiency, productivity, traceability and reduced costs will be the major focus of the CSB-System stand at Foodex 2021.
CSB will showcase its range of industry-specific ERP systems that can be tailored to the requirements of businesses of differing sizes and types, from a centrally controlled turnkey solution for international corporations to a best-practice system ideal for small- and medium-sized enterprises.
Such systems can support automated production and packing lines that deliver higher speeds and efficiencies, ensuring the effective flow of data from sales order through planning to production and packing. In addition, the availability of a single central database that links all areas of operation provides effective traceability, which means businesses can monitor and report back on the progress or whereabouts of a product at any time.
This greater connectivity that now exists between machines, factory ERP and customers, encapsulates the growth and emergence of Industry 4.0, allowing plant and resources to be deployed more efficiently and reducing errors and re-work.
Equally important, CSB says that such advanced software systems enable companies to obtain BRC certification, meeting all legal requirements and providing an enhanced quality management system.
