CPG IoT Quality Control solutions help to detect product anomalies during the production phase

Process driven, high volume manufacturers have a significant challenge when it comes to managing quality, especially in the CPG industry where the rate of production is high, regulations are strict, and the quality and consistency of the product is often a market differentiator. Producing a non-value product, incorrect measurements, or incorrect labelling can have significant negative impacts on cost, wastage, environmental and customer commitments. This quality control solution helps our customers to identify when non-value products or other quality related issues occur on the production lines within seconds, so that production can stop and/or the cause can be remediated. This could save minutes to hours-worth of non-value production. The solution also provides reports with rich information about production quality to help our customers identify and rectify trends leading to poor quality.

Avoid wastage during production

Stop or remediate production within seconds/minutes when producing non-value or incorrect labelling

Reduce environmental impact

Avoids using energy and water to produce non-value product

Reduces re-work

Detecting defective product early can mean the amount of re-work is reduced

Improve processes and configuration

Having rich and insightful quality information leads to faster and greater production improvement

  • How it works
  • Products passing on the conveyer belt or within a work cell will have images taken by an industrial camera. The images are either sent to the AWS cloud or on servers in the factory to be analyzed against a trained model. If the model detects a defect, the system raises an alert to the operator via a web-based user interface. The operator is shown the defective products within seconds of detection and is requested to input the process action taken based on the detection. Defects can cover many aspects of non-value or even non-compliant product. From defective food during production such as misshaped, incorrect filling lines to incorrect labelling that could cause a food safety hazard.

    The solution can be deployed in one or more locations on a production line and can also count products, providing production management with information on where produce was lost during production. Using AWS service Lookout for Vision significantly accelerates time to value and reduces the overall cost of adopting computer vision with its pre-built cloud machine learning services, algorithms, and model training software. This quality control solution also benefits from using Amazon SageMaker to accelerate the development of machine learning capabilities when dealing with complex defects and scenarios in production lines.

    The web-based user interface built on AWS AppSync, React, and Amazon DynamoDB displays alerts when defects are detected, automatically assigning tasks to deal with the detection and captures feedback from the users on actions taken to remediate the quality issue. Amazon S3 and Amazon QuickSight are used to provide the reporting dashboards with detailed information about the quality process.
