Yield matters! I was visiting a customer and was being shown the warm room where they had mobile racks holding large jars filled with product. They told me that if the room temp wasn’t kept the right temperature they wouldn’t yield the optimal volume of product. Each jar could be worth $1,000,000 of product.
The problem was that the mobile racks kept breaking the Air Temperature Sensor when the carts were moved into & out of the room. We took a look and designed an Air Temperature Sensor that would hold up to the abuse and give an accurate reading. I guess you could say it was worth a million bucks.
Durability was certainly important to this customer. What characteristic is critical to your process? Comment here and share your perspective.
