PROBLEM STATEMENT: Operational Efficiencies & Product Innovation Traceability

PROJECT GOAL: The stated goals of Tyson Foods is to enhance yields in the Hanceville, AL rendering facility while optimizing available material streams to increase processing throughput and lower overall production costs per unit, while maintaining finished goods quality. The intent of this project is to provide the tools and analytics to enable Tyson to make smart manufacturing decisions based on facts in context of material flows and manufacturing operations. 

The project will leverage a baseline measurement for a fixed time period for each originating facility metrics, re: protein, moisture, and other attributes, such as: product weights (truck weights) product weighted into Hanceville, loss from the Hanceville processing facility, as Tyson pays suppliers for product, not additives, re: water, etc.

TECHNICAL APPROACH: This project will span 4 months and consist of 6 major tasks:

  • Governance
  • Cloud-based Infrastructure
  • Site Configuration
  • Reporting and Analysis
  • Empowerment

KEY TASKS AND MILESTONES:

  • Governance
  • Cloud based Infrastructure
  • Site configuration
  • Reporting and analysis
  • Proof of Concept (POC) Go-Live Decision
POTENTIAL IMPACT: This project provides validation of the CESMII Platform in a protein-based food processing environment at a line level to demonstrate viable operations, connected to the process w/ timely time-to-value based on variance reduction, yield, and throughput increases, as well as, creating profiles pertinent to the equipment (equipment types).

BENEFITS: The resulting model created with this project will creating profiles pertinent to the equipment (equipment types) and is strongly aligned with CESMII’s mission.
