Productivity software gives insight into filling-line efficiency

Operations Feedback Systems (OFS), a leading provider of real-time productivity improvement software products, has been selected by Kyvalley Dairy for the provision of the core OFS suite at its processing facility in Kyabram, Victoria.

A third-generation family business, Kyvalley Dairy is one of the largest dairy farm operations in Victoria, producing 25 million litres of milk annually. Operating in the Goulburn Valley for more than 100 years, Kyvalley Dairy moved operations to the Kyabram facility in 2000. The company’s product range includes full cream milk, reduced fat milk, no fat milk, frothing milk and flavoured milk ranging from 250 mL to 3 L.

“We realise that investing in technology solutions is a must-have for our business, and if we don’t we face the risk of being left behind,” said Wayne Mulcahy, CEO of Kyvalley Dairy.

“OFS is going to provide us with an invaluable insight into the efficiency of our filling line via several OFS monitors. We will also get a precise understanding of the performance of crucial elements in the production process such as our labeller, packer and robot/palletiser.”
