Today's challenges in bakery
Today bakeries are facing different kind of challenges. With soaring raw material prices, unavailability of certain
materials and an unstable energy market, staff shortage, the challenges are massive. With these challenges it can be
tempting to seek out for options that are low in cost.
It isn’t always a good
way to look at improving operational costs. Some purchasing benefits can result
in massive production inefficiency, but the picture should be larger. All defect
within the process (either resulting in over-or underweight, incomplete or
damaged product waste and intermediate inefficiencies, such as ‘scrap’ or return
dough) can be analysed to be optimised.
Some solutions are done in further atomisation of the complete process,
in certain cases this can go to almost a pharmaceutical kind or process, but
that doensn’t work out when the process in itself isn’t in control. So how to get
In another way a compliance
can also be a good direction:
- Describing task, controls and correction measurements per process step and assign responsibilities (and bandwith) per function.
- Larger adaptations are the always done together, where smaller adaptations are in a certain bandwith: this is also solves the issue that each shift is having their own set of process parameters.
