Installed: Applied Principles’ data capture system, Principle Suite.

Solution: Queens Drive has been working with Applied Principles since July 2009 to improve processes and remove paper for the benefit of retail customers. Goods In and Low Risk were the first areas to remove paper and the additional equipment is being used to make the High Risk and Despatch areas paper free.

Benefits: Pork Farms has doubled the capacity of its data capture system at its Queens Drive manufacturing site and all quality paperwork has now been removed throughout the production process. CCP, QC and QA results are electronically captured and monitored by the data capture system. Principle Suite real-time alerts and quick access to online reporting means that communication between the factory floor and technical team is more efficient. The system enables staff to close the loop on corrective actions in real time on the factory floor.

Next steps: The site is planning a roll-out into the production, hygiene and internal audit departments, while Pork Farms is now looking into the possibility of rolling the system out across the group.
