InfinityQS International, the provider of real-time quality control solutions, has announced that four out of the top five ranked companies on the 2011 Food Processing's Top 100 list, released in Aug. 2011, are using InfinityQS' ProFicient to reduce production costs and control global quality. The annual report rates food companies in the United States and Canada on sales and profitability. These four leading food and beverage manufacturers have deployed InfinityQS' software in large, multi-site implementations.
Several high profile food recalls in recent years have put a focus on food safety and public health. With InfinityQS' solutions, food and beverage manufacturers can take a proactive approach to quality assurance and mitigate the risk of recalls by monitoring real-time process data for abnormalities.
ProFicient is a flexible, easy-to-use advanced data analysis platform that gives manufacturers complete visibility into process capabilities. The solution provides real-time intelligence that allows manufacturers to achieve the dual goals of producing a safe, consistent product while lowering costs associated with product waste and giveaway.
ProFicient supports the specific requirements for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) mandated by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) as well as the USDA's Sanitation and Standard Operating Procedures (SSOP). InfinityQS' Dynamic Scheduler ensures 100 percent compliance by alerting operators to upcoming scheduled tasks and allowing companies to implement a dynamic sampling workflow.
The recent release of ProFicient version 4.4 further enhances food and beverage manufacturers' abilities to drive the quality aspects of OEE (Operational Equipment Effectiveness) and provides new tools that enforce global quality standards throughout manufacturing and the supply chain.
"It's no coincidence that InfinityQS customers are consistently ranked as the top food manufacturers-- they have active quality control programs that continually produce results," said Michael A. Lyle, President and CEO of InfinityQS. "We work closely with leading food and beverage manufacturers to develop software tools, such as Dynamic Scheduler, that provide complete visibility into their operations and assure the safety and quality of the food products they produce."
