Industry 4.0 promises a whole host of benefits to food manufacturers from reduced errors and more uptime to unprecedented visibility into operations at every step in the process. But for many food manufacturers out there, this is uncharted territory. Getting machines of various vintages connected and communicating seamlessly with each other and with existing control systems can seem like an expensive and difficult proposition. Coding and marking is a great place to start for many companies, since SKU proliferation is putting greater demands on packaging lines and introducing additional opportunities for human error. In this brief white paper, Domino examines five key issues with integrating coding and marking systems that often present challenges for food manufacturers along the road to Industry 4.0.

"Lean" is defined as a process to improve manufacturing and service operations, reduce waste, improve quality and drive down cost. While many packaging companies have embraced a number of Lean Manufacturing concepts, many have yet to fully realize the benefits of a fully-integrated Lean environment. Leveraging an ERP system that embraces "Lean" principles and incorporates industry specific best practices can facilitate and support the process. In this white paper, learn how lean manufacturing can apply to printing and packaging, and how an ERP system fits into the process.

Buying an ERP system that doesn't closely fit your business processes can be a costly mistake. This is particularly true if you try to fit a generic manufacturing ERP solution into a packaging/printing business environment. Reworking a non-industry specific system to meet the day-to-day operational needs of a printing/packaging operation requires significant modifications to the core product. The resulting software can end up so heavily customized that it can be difficult and very costly to maintain.
