Freezing Area and Packaging Belt
Thomas Delicious Ice Cream Company is a traditional company that produces, packages and delivers ice cream on a large scale. Some processes are automated and data is collected but supervision, maintenance and quality assurance are done manually.
During the project semester, a prototype data analytics platform for the Thomas Delicious Ice Cream Company was built. This platform supports a variety of tasks:
- measuring sensors in the production area
- monitoring trucks in real time
- launching predictive maintenance
It helps the company to detect and react faster to problems in the followingfields of application:
- static freezing area
- transport belt in the packaging area
- status of the trucks
This will lead to better utilization of the equipment. Furthermore, by using predictive maintenance in the packaging area, the maintenance cost can be reduced.
