An effective compliance program is essential to prevent business disruptions and loss of reputation. To enable that, food and beverage manufacturers must maintain strict quality control, manage raw materials and inventory efficiently, and enable continuous data integration between operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) systems. Companies have digitally transformed their manufacturing operations adopting Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to enable that. Bidirectional movement of data between OT and IT systems is a key part of IIoT. Food and Beverage manufacturing companies rely on HiveMQ to ensure bidirectional data movement to enable use cases, such as:
HiveMQ enterprise MQTT platform connects data from various sources in your manufacturing value chain including external sources like raw materials. HiveMQ then aggregates them in the enterprise data lake.
HiveMQ provides the data platform to support digital compliance, regulatory reporting, and quality management securely and reliably.
Food and Beverage Manufacturing companies are powering their Digital Transformation using IIoT and Industry 4.0 technologies. Adopting IIoT technologies brings multiple advantages, including:
However, there are a several data challenges to overcome while implementing IIoT solutions, including:
You need a solution that can consistently overcome these data challenges. MQTT is a lightweight publish/subscribe protocol that conquers these issues by:
HiveMQ is an MQTT-Sparkplug based messaging platform designed for fast, efficient, and reliable data movement to and from food and beverage manufacturing plant machines, processes, applications, and enterprise systems on-premise or on the cloud. These technologies support IIoT and Digital Transformation within your organization.
Discover the full features of the HiveMQ platform for building IIoT solutions for the food and beverage manufacturing industry.
Here are the data architecture diagrams for two of the common use cases for Food and Beverage Manufacturing enabled by HiveMQ:
At the heart of Digital Transformation and digitization initiatives in Food and Beverage manufacturing is Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies, which enable use cases such as cloud digital twins, analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. However, a Food and Beverage manufacturer needs more than IIoT technologies to remove all the challenges, like legacy equipment with proprietary protocols, unreliable connections, and complex infrastructures. These challenges make it difficult to implement IIoT solutions.
Download our white paper that discusses how MQTT technology helps overcome these challenges. It then delves into how HiveMQ’s MQTT broker provides additional feature/functionality that enables some of the use cases in Food and Beverage manufacturing. Finally, it talks about Sparkplug and how it provides additional features that are relevant to the Food and Beverage manufacturing industry.
