CPG IoT OI solution to track metrics and improve decision-making in production and distribution

Process-driven, high-volume manufacturers face a significant challenge when it comes to collecting data in a timely fashion and combining it to produce insightful business intelligence dashboards that will help them gain a competitive advantage.

A single production line could generate terabytes of data, yet most data remains unanalyzed. CPG manufacturers can leverage emerging technologies to efficiently extract the data and use the Spark IoT for Operational Intelligence solution to provide the ability to improve decision-making.

Spark IoT for CPG operational intelligence can provide reports on KPIs such as overall equipment effectiveness, total effective equipment performance, production reliability, and more. The solution depends on data availability; however, our other CPG IoT solutions can provide an effective way of collecting the right data to allow manufacturers to drive innovation to gain a competitive advantage.

  • How it works
  • DXC uses their own consulting services to help customers determine how much value they can get from introducing IoT technologies into their factories. DXC then provides a discovery and design service that develops a tailored design and implementation plan for their specific factory and production lines.

    The technical solution ingests relevant data using a combination of Amazon S3 and AWS Glue. The data is loaded into AWS Managed Grafana and Amazon QuickSight via Amazon Athena and Amazon Redshift. The data is presented in the form of customizable, user-friendly dashboards on AWS Managed Grafana, and Amazon QuickSight for real-time and historical reporting, respectively.
