As food and beverage manufacturing moves toward becoming a $1 trillion market, the opportunities and challenges grow along with it. The industry, by any yardstick, is big business: a bigger pot, more players, more geography and more challenges.
How to take advantage of the opportunities this offers and the obstacles it presents requires continuing vigilance by management at all levels and in all operations.
It means increased reliance on technology to monitor, manage, analyze, take action and plan for the future, and a brighter spotlight on the manufacturing professionals who convert this data into meaningful, manageable and actionable information.
However, it comes at a time that the manufacturing industry is faced with a shrinking number of engineers to develop and maintain processing and related systems.
For many food and beverage manufacturers, the solution has been to look to system integrators.
