Accenture is working with confectionary, food, and pet care products manufacturer, Mars to transform and modernise its global manufacturing operations with artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, edge technology and digital twins.
The companies tested a digital twin to reduce instances of over-filling packages, a common problem in the food industry. The digital twin gave Mars a bird’s-eye view of the production lines at one of its factories in Illinois. The twin fed sensor data from manufacturing machinery into a predictive analytics model, which allowed factory line operators to monitor events in real-time and adjust the filling process.
