Enabling Predictive Operational Excellence in the Food & Beverage Industry

Dr. Nikunj Mehta, Founder and CEO, Falkonry


Adding predictive to digital twins hold great promise because they bring all of the information the end user needs into one place. But a digital twin that only stores data is just another data lake. By incorporating Operational AI, the digital twin produces actionable insights to predict and optimize asset performance. These predictive digital twins serve as a bridge between data generated by operational technology and higher order strategies of operational management. The Food and Beverage sector is highly susceptible to production disruptions due to just-in-time supply chain and black swan events. Operational AI assists manufacturers and processors in maintaining production schedules even during fluctuations with the following applications: Predictive Maintenance, Safety & Compliance, Production Continuity and Predicting Quality Issues.
