We often talk about capacity building and how technology can provide efficiency when capacity is ramped up. BarTender provided enhancements in infrastructure and reduction of human resources for an animal feed company when they needed to ramp up production due to increased demand.
Perstorp is a leading specialty chemicals innovator, whose animal nutrition division “needed to undergo an expansion program to continue to meet demand.” One way this was accomplished was through the addition of two packaging lines to help with bottleneck issues. To further improve efficiency and standardize the packaging and labeling of the products, the company reviewed the production process and made some changes to reduce the amount of input or activity from the operator so their focus could be on other aspects of the job. Some of the efficiencies and standardization that occurred were eliminating manual processes like label design selection and implementing an automated process using data to select the required label design.
This solution not only enabled this company to gain efficiency and standardization and also eliminates the need for additional resources to label and package the product. The automation of the labeling process includes stopgaps within the data processing to ensure that the right labels are printed for the right products. As a BarTender partner, Pragmatyxs can help your company implement BarTender’s automated labeling solution and help you gain efficiency, accuracy, and effectiveness within your production environment.
