Next up, this week we discuss why BOMs are beneficial to the bottling and beverage industry.
This industry is as old as it is significant. It has come a long way since its modernization two centuries ago and now finds itself fitted with the new mass-production opportunities and exponential consumer growth. With this demand in mind, assembly lines employing filling machines, sterilization stations, and complex piping for brewing require extensive upkeep.
Like many industries, modern beverage manufacturing is incredibly streamlined, with the process being almost completely automated – from grain to fizz.
Combining all these steps that rarely see manual human interaction makes it easy to imagine maintenance’s critical role in production. The issue lies in how complicated the process is for each can or bottle produced. As you can see, there was probably a little more complexity to that drink than you thought.
Moreover, having a consistent, accurate, and intuitive database listing all the spare materials needed to maintain this network of machines and processes will be key. Setting up a maintenance BOM and visual parts catalogue that can reliably point to each component needing replacement is how sustaining long-term production targets will be possible in this industry.
