Planned. Tracked. Automated. Analysed. Optimised. Understood.

LYNQ is reinventing manufacturing execution system (MES) software for food and beverage manufacturers running batch processing or production lines.

The UK’s food and beverage industry is worth £21 billion to the economy and employs over 400,000 people.

With a turnover of more than £80 billion, the food and beverage industry is the UK’s largest manufacturing sector and it continues to grow as the population expands.

The sector contributes significantly to the country’s status as one of the world’s largest manufacturing nations too, however, the industry faces a unique set of demands that, together, make it particularly challenging to plan and produce effectively.

Strict regulations

The whole sector is impacted by constantly evolving food safety regulations, as the relevant government bodies strive to keep consumers safe.

Shelf lives

Supply chain efficiency is vital, with every product having a limited shelf life. Scheduling is made more complex by lengthy supply chains that involve ingredients, packaging and distribution.

Customer and retailer demands

Operations must run at optimum efficiency to meet retailers’ demand for lower prices. Increasing competition between the biggest stores puts more pressure on manufacturers.

Fluctuating supplies and demand

Seasonality and dependence on crop yields can cause fluctuations in the availability and quality of raw materials, affecting productivity. Producers must prepare for supply problems, and respond to changing demand throughout the year.

Achieving delivery, quality and financial goals relies on the effectiveness of your resources. Getting the most from your employees and machines goes beyond scheduling. It requires intelligent insight and complete visibility of where time is being lost, using technology that can automate data collection and optimise workflow, to seamlessly connect planning and production activities.

LYNQ is built to complement the best-of-breed ERP systems your company already relies on, and can improve operations in a number of ways.

  • Understand product demand quickly and easily, regardless of whether your production is driven by data-fuelled forecasts, actual orders or close stock monitoring
  • Avoid stock-outs and overstocking by using data to determine your precise manufacturing requirements in real time – invaluable when product shelf lives are limited
  • Prevent bottlenecks by establishing an optimum production plan for your factory, based on accurate data
  • Increase supply chain visibility by monitoring each stage closely, with real-time dashboards and status updates for all relevant parties

LYNQ is already helping food and beverage manufacturers improve their operations to deliver better products more quickly.
