Operator-centric production is typical for many manufacturing enterprises. For Food & Beverage producers, whether it is the semi-automatic production of packaged, canned and bottled foods to the team-based assembly of meat, fish, confectionery and fresh food products, the effectiveness of the shop floor workforce is critical to the success of the organization.
Food & Beverage manufacturers are facing a great deal of challenges and opportunities. Consumers’ preferences are changing, they want more varieties of products tailored to their individual lifestyles and there is an increasing demand for sustainability, which is driving companies to reduce their environmental footprint and adopt more eco-friendly practices.
