Results / Benefits
Bachelor Controls’ comprehensive understanding of the relationship between the business/enterprise system and the plant floor operations allowed BCI to provide an integrated solution for Natura’s entire Natura – scaleprocess. From the receiving ticket that inventories unloading grain trucks to the mechanized packaging and palleting operation that readies product for warehousing and delivery, BCI systems provide near real-time information tracking and exchange. Natura leaders can use these data and reporting tools to make critical inventory and production decisions. The result is a seamless exchange of ingredient history and information from grain truck to grocery store delivery truck.
I am impressed with both the design and the project management skills delivered by Bachelor Controlsto create a highly functional, user-friendly, and extremely performant batching system for Natura Manufacturing..
