A manufacturer that processes shelled and unshelled almonds, as well as almond paste, used a largely manual process driven by one key employee to determine which almonds by quality and size went into which production process. That limited the company’s ability to scale operations. Using Advanced Analytics in Microsoft Azure AI, Columbus worked with the company to model their process to automate production decisions for greater efficiencies in inventory management now, and improved planning for the future.

Benefits include:

  • Increasing revenue by 1 cent/pound, on an annual processing volume of 75 million pounds
  • Ability to access and analyze data to control distribution of almond inventory by quality and size
  • Assisting distribution lead in the forecasting of product needs and processing plan
  • Enabling scalability by automating production decisions with AI
