Maintaining a high level of control over MBSA’s numerous systems and inherent production variables is a framework upon which critical layers of technology have been built. This real-time ‘manufacturing intelligence’ allows a highly-efficient and flexible manufacturing capability, providing consistent quality.
‘We use an innovative inventory management system that enhances our traceability function,’ Anthony continues. ‘This is actively used in our quality assurance systems allowing us to trace all raw materials throughout the system, from receipt to finished product, utilising electronic data management on a bag-by-bag visibility basis.’
