Enventure to help optimize MRO inventory and enhance plant operations for specialized food manufacture in the US

Enventure has been selected by a leading specialized food manufacturer in the US to optimize MRO Inventory and provide an on-going data governance model to enhance plant operations.

The client is specialized in manufacturing a complete range of yogurt products such as dairy, non-dairy, plant-based, and oat milk. Its products include a variety of Greek or strained, yogurt cups, flips, drinks, and children’s snacks, dairy-based coffee creamers, as well as plant-based products made with organic oats or coconut. With the manufacturing setup in the US and spread across 1,000,000 square feet area, it has been the largest in the world.

Large manufacturing plants will have bigger problems to worry about and the major challenge being asset uptime and availability of spare parts. The client has over 50,000 MRO parts in the ERP/EAM systems. Enventure conducted a data audit with a sample dataset to identify issues such as duplicates, unclassified parts, lack of schema/taxonomy definition, invalid manufacturer details, and most importantly missing critical attributes for most of the spare parts.

Enventure will design a custom data enrichment and governance framework, covering all aspects of data quality enhancement, and integration with their existing ERP and EAM systems. The team will develop a taxonomy specific to food industry to identify the difference between food grade and non-food grade information of every spare parts in production.

Enventure team consists of MRO master data engineers, Food Industry-specific specialists, and a multi-lingual supplier engagement team. The scope of the project includes:

● Develop and implement a robust supplier engagement strategy to collect parts information
● Design food industry-specific schema/taxonomy
● Assign data attributes in alignment to schema classification
● Classify all parts based on UNSPSC
● Validate and standardize the manufacturer name and part number
● Enrich the parts with missing part information
● Capture and update MSDS information wherever applicable
● Integrate MRO parts data into their ERP and EAM systems
● Provide Ongoing data governance support through an AI-based platform

We have been transforming MRO Data Excellence for F&B Industry across the globe and our clients have witnessed an exceptional improvement with our services. We are happy to help optimize plant operations and improve the data quality for the largest yogurt manufacturer in the world,” says CK Bharathan, Head of Master Data Management, Enventure.
