" You've got to

business get ahead in the market, " Datlow said.
" This could look like integrating novel data into
the traditional processing decisions using Internet
of Things (IoT) sensors that allow for more
optimized processing, or anomaly detection and
alerting, or using AI and analytics to optimize
ingredient formulations for new products. "
What's more, the present reality of doing
business has to take into account the pressures on
labor and fuel, Pandya pointed out. Those factors,
he added, should encourage more companies to
incorporate new technologies into their strategies.
" Whether it is an advanced algorithm that
allocates milk to different plants based on highest
gross margin potential looking at sales orders or
putting in automated filling machines that also selfcalibrate
and standardize milk, there are plenty of
opportunities, " Pandya said.
Another possibility that he already sees
becoming more prominent is putting machine
ecosystems into practice. Pandya described them
as functioning almost like a Facebook or social
media app for machines, allowing one machine
to communicate with another up or down stream
that is about to stop. Such upgrades significantly
reduce waste and the necessity for labor
coordination across various plant control points,
he explained.
Consumer consciousness could drive product
innovation, plant upgrades and capitol allocation,
as well, Pandya said. If innovations are driven
by consumer insights - gained either through
partnerships with retailers or independently - he
sees there being a lot better chances of success.
Inside of plants, many companies already
use manufacturing intelligence systems. Many
of Dairy.com's customers, Sexton shared, utilize
Orbis MES, which connects to equipment on the
automation line and can communicate all of the
tracking, while monitoring multiple factors, from
the weigh bridge to the meter intake, all the way
out to the finished good.
The system also monitors energy utilization,
while providing complete tracking and tracing of
the process.
" So it's a really powerful tool that helps
you not only better operate with less loss and
shrink, and maximize use of those ingredients, "
Sexton said, " but it also creates a full genealogy
of all of these components as they flow through
your operation. "
Quality management is another area where
processors easily could modernize if they haven't
already, he added. While Sexton said " a lot " of
such work still involves paper logs at some plants,
