A1 Bacon has a reputation for its mouth-watering and premium quality bacon products, with a remarkable daily output of more than 40 tons.
A1 Bacon has been a customer of output.industries and an active user of Busroot for over 12 months. Busroot is at the centre of its production operations, providing accurate real-time data to drive immediate awareness of production progress against targets and forecast completion times.
Little understanding of progress vs targets
Operators need to be made aware of progress. Management was reliant on supervisors to collect data manually.
Existing legacy machines without connectivity
Machines that are not able to communicate progress and would require expensive retrofit.
Lack of a dedicated digital team
An in-house team was unable to implement and benefit from industry 4.0 solutions.
The A1 Bacon team use Busroot to visualise production and manufacturing KPIs that gave the operations leadership team the true picture of production progress in real time. The Busroot platform also provides asset utilisation and downtime detection via our industrial IoT sensor connected directly to the seven production lines.
Large format displays give shopfloor teams a clear and accurate understanding of production progress against targets.
Busroot has transformed the culture at A1 Bacon, taking them from an organisation with little to no technology within the production process to a robust solution that has quickly become integral to the day-to-day operations.
