IoT systems gather a wide range of data points that can
address consistent product quality, traceability,
production efficiencies and maintenance.
"Once data is gathered for some time, look for trends and
outcomes that can be used to make process changes or provide critical information for management reporting."
Predictive equipment maintenance is a good place to
start, according to Mr. Davis. These uses of IoT systems
have been proven through ROIs and can be implemented in select places on the production line starting out.

New tech challenges
Despite everything an IoT system brings to the table, it
isn't without challenges. As with all technology, communication between different systems, especially older
ones, can be tricky. "When putting in a new system, it's
pretty easy to add in sensors at the installation," Mr. Arp
said. "But with some of the older equipment we're having to figure out how we can get that data into the same
database with the newer systems." This can often require
additional communication cards on newer PLCs or data
concentrators.
Sensor calibration is also critical to ensure the data being measured is accurate. "We bring experts in right before we commission the project to calibrate all of our flow
meters, pressure transmitters and any other vital instrumentation that is being fed into the system," Mr. Arp said.
However, once sensors are calibrated, bakers can't
forget about them. "It becomes the responsibility of
the bakery to maintain that calibration," he continued. The system's maintenance plan must include rou-

tine calibration to maintain accuracy.
The internet side of IoT can also be challenging with
security being of constant concern, especially in the proprietary world of baking. The accessibility of the data is
one of its great benefits, but it also causes some companies to think twice about implementing these programs.
While there are many good solutions out there to protect data, it's important that companies thoroughly understand and trust where it is being stored. "At the end
of the day, you're putting your data on someone else's
system, and they are managing it for you," Mr. Arp said.
"You have to trust that person with your data." Bakers
with large amounts of data stored and available in the
cloud should consider hiring network security consultants to review their current data security and help develop a plan to reduce risk.
Without proper analysis, however, data is just a bunch
of numbers in the cloud, and that won't be helpful to
anyone. "It is straightforward to set up sensors and devices to collect big data," Mr. Watson said. "Still, the
challenge becomes how to analyze it in a quality way and
then issue reports, create dashboards or send alerts to
operators and managers so that decisions can be made
based on that information."
IoT systems empower bakers to see their bakeries in
a new light. With proper analysis available, IoT systems
can help bakers take their decision-making and production efficiencies to the next level.

*

IoT systems can collect
temperature, energy use
and other information
into one cohesive
data set to be analyzed
for identifying trends
and potential
production issues.
