Automation Systems need to enable the manufacturer to drive efficiencies in their Operations, while having the capabilities designed in to allow changes to be implemented to meet market demands of changing consumer preferences. Maximizing the capacity of the automated systems means measuring production correctly, ensuring complete but fast sanitation, minimizing energy usage, ensuring mass balance, reducing product changeover times, increasing yields, and ensuring product quality. Traceability provides the producer with the information necessary to minimize the scope of a recall and improve quality overall and reduce cost by reducing waste and catching problems early. Further, a properly integrated system provides important information for use in hazard analysis when required.
