Alpha Baking Goes Live With ASSISTics

Paoli, PA – April 1, 2013 – Alpha Baking, a national bread maker with substantial operations in the upper Midwest, has gone live with the ASSISTics shop floor data collection system. The Lyndale plant, located in the Chicago area is the first of many locations to roll out the ASSISTics solution.

“The Alpha Baking engagement serves to demonstrate the depth of the ASSIST team’s organization” says Charlie Pell from ASSIST. “We began with migrating to a new database release. A functional review then identified the need to change the manufacturing model. We implemented the model change and then went live with shop floor data collection in just a couple of months.”
