Assessment Framework for Vendors

 

At Venwiz, we realise the importance of matching the most suitable vendor for your business requirements. This is why our team undertakes a thorough technical assessment of all vendors as part of our decision-making process.

We are giving you a sneak peek into the proprietary framework we have created at Venwiz, for vendor assessment. The assessment gives clients a comprehensive view of a vendor’s capabilities to meet specific industrial requirements and their capacity as service providers. 

The assessment commences at the sign-up stage, and continues through the vendor’s lifetime on the platform, with regular follow-ups for addition/removal of information.

This has two main benefits:

  • Establishes a sense of confidence in our clients, since they have visibility on the thorough process being followed on Venwiz
  • It also enables vendors with due diligence by following our processes, making them “ready-to-onboard” on being matched to a  client. 

 

A quick review of the 5-step process Venwiz follows for vendor assessment:

Plant-Based Meat Industry in India: World Pulses Day Focus

Featuring an exclusive interview with Blue Tribe Foods

The UN General Assembly announced the observance of World Pulses Day back in 2013, The idea was to recognise the contribution of pulses towards achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). 

Pulses are recognised for their nutritional value, environmental benefits and food security. They play an important role in climate change mitigation as they can decrease dependence on artificial fertilizers by introducing nutrients such as nitrogen into the soil. 

Legumes & Pulses also improve the fertility of the soil and soil biodiversity, keeping harmful pests away. Additionally, pulses have a broad genetic diversity making them climate-smart, meaning they adapt to changing climates and more varieties can be made climate-resilient. 

Pulses are among the main sources of protein for people who don't consume meat, which brings us to the focal point of our article on the growing plant-based meat market & manufacturing. 

Rise of Plant-Based Meat in the world: 

While the existence of plant-based meat alternatives can be traced back to the 70s in the US, it has seen rising global popularity. There are several reasons people are opting for alternative sources, with climate change and environmental reasons being on top of the list. 

Globally there are companies like Beyond Meat, Impossible Foods and many others using science to manufacture and produce plant-based alternatives that taste and function like real meat while reducing the impact on the environment. The global plant-based meat market is set to grow to $23.2 billion by 2024, market research company 

India isn’t far behind on the transition towards adopting plant-based meats. As a country with a large vegetarian population, we are no strangers to using pulses & legumes as part of our daily food. The major focus for the plant-based meat market was on creating alternatives to replace or substitute meat and now India has over 20+ major plant-based meat brands with the numbers steadily growing. 

Blue Tribe Foods, Good Dot, Wakao, Imagine meats, Vezlay, Urban Platter, Veggie Champ, Shaka Harry are just a few pioneers in the space. 

Large corporations are also looking into entering the plant-based protein market, amid market pressure and changes in consumer behaviour. 

ITC, one of India’s largest conglomerates, recently announced its foray into plant-based meat products as part of their existing product offerings. The company cites GFI India’s research as being a catalyst in the move forward. Figures released by the institute revealed that 63 per cent of urban and upwardly mobile non-vegetarians would buy plant-based meats regularly.

GFI India (Good Food Institute) org, also attributed India’s status as an agricultural and industrial powerhouse to its ability to create unique opportunities for the country, to become a potential sourcing and manufacturing hub for alternative proteins―and pulses are emblematic of that promise.

Plant-Based Meat Manufacturing in India: 

India is one of the largest producers of protein-rich food grains such as pluses. The production of pulses (tur, urad and other lentils) across India were estimated to be at around 25 million metric tons in FY -21. 

With respect to the technologies required to capitalize on these opportunities, a variety of well-understood and related food processes already exist. This allows plant-based meat manufacturers to take a template-based approach for raw materials and overall processing systems. 

Extrusion is one such example; where it is widely used in producing cereals, puffed snacks, bars, and pastas, and serves as a key platform in the production of plant-based meat. 

Interview with Blue Tribe Foods: A  Plant-Based Meat Startup

Blue Tribe Foods is a pioneer in plant-based meat products in India. They recently saw Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma join them as investors and brand ambassadors. To know more about Blue Tribe Foods you can visit their website

We spoke with Mr. Sohil Wazir, their Chief Commercial Officer, about the plant-based meat market for an insider perspective. Continue reading the interview below: 

1. How did you decide to enter the plant-based meat space what were the influencing factors?

Environmental reasons:

Animal agriculture on an industrial scale contributes to 18% of total carbon emissions generated by human activity; moving away from meat may be the largest and most immediate impact one can make in securing the future of the planet! 

Nutritional reasons:

Even from a resources standpoint, getting food from animals is about 8 times less efficient per calorie than getting it directly from plants. Not to mention the land and water usage which puts stress on indigenous food systems.

The pitch was set! 

2021 saw the launch of plant-based meat as a mainstream food option, with a slew of new products hitting the Indian market which mimic meat in taste, texture, mouth-feel and even close the gap on nutrition through strides in technology. These products are trying to bridge the gap between what tastes great, and what's good for the planet.

 Blue Tribe is our effort to make plant-based meat products for the Indian taste palate, moving away from beef imitations, which are the norm for most western markets.  

2. How is the current market for plant-based meat and how is the market expected to shape up in the future?

Currently, western markets have an established presence of plant based meat products. In India, this category is still in its infancy, but has come a long way in the last couple of years. Now, with more people and celebrities investing in the space, it's bound to grow at a breakneck pace. 

Until recently, plant-based meats were a fringe food item, consumed mainly by vegans either at home or at vegan restaurants. Now, every restaurant has some options available for its clientele. It has become more mainstream, and will continue to do so as demand grows. 

3. What is the manufacturing process? (We would like to understand how mechanised it is, what are some common production bottlenecks, etc)

For manufacturing, we leverage existing technologies and adapt them to fit our production needs. The primary process used is low moisture protein extrusion. A step-by-step breakup is below:

  • Extrusion transforms ingredients such as biopolymers (inputs) into a continuous semi-solid (output). To conclude this process, a screw system within a barrel transfers mass (a combination of dry ingredients, water, and/or oil) through a die (small opening).
  • The mass is then exposed to a combination of parameters, including heat, mechanical energy, pressure, and moisture etc. 
  • The continuous fluid passes through the extruder according to its specific parameters, exits a die, and is cut into various lengths. 
  • Post-extrusion, the output is semi-solid and retains moisture. Wet Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) output will go through marination, coating, and/or cooling steps. To create dry TVP, the product will pass directly from the extruder onto a conveyor, and then into a dryer. 

The type of machines we use also depend on the output we want to produce i.e. Chicken nuggets, sausages, keema etc. 

One of the major production challenges we faced were in acquiring flavours, which were not readily available in the Indian market. To combat this, we plan our production volumes at least 6 months in advance. Planning this far ahead means that any change would take time to implement. 

If we were to compare production challenges (then vs now), though the challenge remains, our lead time has slightly reduced, there are more vendors that we are able to work with and we are consistently looking for ways to improve our production. Our goal is to achieve price parity with meat, in order for us to be a true substitute. 

4. What are the warehousing and cold storage requirements like for your industry? 

Currently, we are renting out cold storage for our purpose. We need to have decentralised, city-wise cold storage to be able to service the market quickly. 

5. Also please tell us briefly about the infrastructure available in India for such industries.

We are currently piggy-backing on infrastructure used for ice creams, as they also fall into the same frozen category. This has very poor infrastructure outside of the key 25-30 cities. So scaling beyond these is proving to be a problem

6. Is there a need to engage with food consultants? What would be your advice in this respect for other food start-ups in lieu of this?

We have an in-house R&D consisting of both food scientists as well as a chef who work in tandem to develop the products. This category is going to need a lot of innovation to be able to match taste, format, availability and pricing. 

7. What are the testing and certification requirements? How does one go about this - Where to go/timelines/ resources required in the process?

There are multiple agencies that can provide vegan and vegetarian certifications. For exports, there are a few more certifications required which depend from region to region.

IIoT as a service: How IIoT can be used to improve asset monitoring and logistics tracking

Over the past couple of years, the shift towards smart manufacturing or Industry 4.0 has been evident. This has allowed for higher optimization of manufacturing processes, human & machine safety, asset tracking and data-driven process optimisation. 

What is Industry 4.0? 

Simply put, Industry 4.0 is the new phase in Industrial Revolution that concentrates on automation, machine to machine interaction, real-time data, machine learning, augmented & virtual reality and other cutting edge technologies in manufacturing. Industry 4.0 technologies comprise of IIoT and smart manufacturing. 

What is IIoT?

IIoT is the industrial internet of things. It uses technologies such as smart sensors or actuators to upgrade manufacturing and industrial processes. It is a network of intelligent devices that are connected to form what are known as ‘systems’. These systems monitor, collect, collate, exchange and analyze data. IIoT relies on using the power of smart machines that provide real-time analytics and data. Using IIoT, manufacturers can

  • Capture and analyse data in real-time
  • Communicate important information to drive business decisions 
  • Receive faster and more accurate data to improve their response

With the use of IIoT, manufacturers are able to pick up on inefficiencies quicker thus saving themselves time and money. 

Challenges faced by Manufacturers 

In today’s VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world, manufacturers are faced with a multitude of challenges 

  • Lack of actionable insights 
  • Manual processes
  • Production mapping between different units.
  • Inefficient asset Monitoring & tracking of assets
  • High operational costs
  • Unplanned outage or breakdown
  • Delay in analysis and decision making  
  • Communication delays and longer response times etc. 

To deal with challenges, IIoT can help organisations.

Also Read: How to effectively initiate your Vendor Management process

It is crucial for any manufacturing organisation to use assets (including facilities, equipment, systems etc), not just effectively but efficiently. Optimised use can reduce the operating cost of the assets. In addition, measures taken to reduce unplanned outages of the assets provide uninterrupted production lines.

 

Benefits of IIoT

One of the primary benefits of having IIoT-enabled data systems is that it empowers manufacturers to improve operating efficiencies - which as per the study conducted by IBM is ranked among their greatest priorities. Some of the other benefits include

  • Centralized and accurate monitoring: This enables more control on the processes and performance can be monitored from anywhere. It could be monitored from the manufacturing floor or from thousands of miles away. 
  • Efficient use of resources and thus optimisation in operating cost
  • Predictive maintenance can be scheduled reducing maintenance costs and well as reducing downtime, thus increasing productivity
  • Decision making can be based on data and analytics - IIoT promotes learning for the future
  • Faster response time to events minimises risk and liabilities
  • Increase efficiency: As mentioned above, increased efficiency is one of the largest benefits of IIoT and it provides manufacturers with the ability to automate, and thus optimize their operating efficiency. 
  • Reduced errors: By incorporating IIoT, manufacturers can drastically reduce the risk of human error, which according to a report by cyber security trends, accounts for nearly 37% of all security incidents. 

Future Trends 2022 for IIoT

 

Also Read: 8 Trends in Manufacturing Industry that are Dominating in 2021

One of the best ways to understand the concept of IIoT and smart manufacturing better is to think about how it could be applied to your business. An IIoT case study can help illustrate the same and help you understand the value of Industry 4.0 at a manufacturing operation. 

Here are two case studies by Venwiz vendors Syook & YuDash 

Case study in collaboration with YuDash

Uninterrupted and clean power is the lifeline of any manufacturing unit. While the power situation has improved significantly in recent years. Factories with continuous operations still have to deploy UPS for uninterrupted power.

Following Murphy’s law, even the best UPS systems, sometimes break down on the most crucial days. This causes production delays, financial loss, frustration within the team and friction with vendors.

The challenge: 

Clients of YuDash, “Garg Associates Pvt Ltd”, manufacture high-performance wire cable, thus any power cuts for them would lead to high production loss.

The solution: 

YuDash solves this problem through Yureca which is a self-contained IIoT solution that provides preventive alerts, real-time monitoring and health insights of the UPS. The alerts can be on-floor alarms, email, SMS or even SOS phone calls. The solution can be implemented by both factory owners and UPS manufacturers and resellers. It is used for critical utilities (like Power quality equipment and Gas generation Plants). In one use case, Yureca was being used to monitor an oxygen plant at a hospital. Critical parameters like oxygen purity, power consumption, runtime are monitored to detect faults and potential leakage helping manufacturers take preventive actions.

 Yureca monitors and pre-empts UPS breakdowns and thus can be used by manufacturers to plan ahead.

This technology is also being used by clients in the IT & Banking sector.

The Outcome

Yureca was the perfect a solution for manufacturers looking for remote monitoring and control of their assets. Using this solution ensured preventative action thus saving them loss of resources and money. It also ensured safety of assets.

Case study in collaboration with Syook: 

Logistics tracking via IIoT 

A leading FMCG manufacturer had an issue with identifying and tracking the location of their trucks, which resulted in disruptions. Read about how Syook was able to provide an effective solution. 

The challenge: 

Due to the number of checkpoints and locations, the truck’s wait time inside the premises increased. This lead to cascading effects, resulting in 

  • Delays in production cycles, 
  • Delayed dispatch of final goods etc. 
  • Increase in the trunk rentals 

The movement of goods is among the key aspects of revenue generation for most manufacturing setups. As a manufacturer, you cannot operate without the inward movement of the raw materials and cannot generate revenue until the FGs are dispatched. As a warehouse operator, you cannot generate revenue without the inward and outward flow of goods.

The solution: 

Upon speaking with M/s Syook, the FMCG manufacturing company and the team at Syook studied the entire logistics flow. Syook was able to quickly suggest the implementation of their in-house technology known as TiTo - Truck-In-Truck-Out for the manufacturer. 

TiTo is an industrial  IIoT solution that is used to monitor the location of trucks and drivers for managing in-plant logistics and SCM (Supply chain management) at factories and warehouses. With the implementation of TiTo, there is a drastic improvement in the TAT(Turn around Time).

The Outcome: 

The delays were drastically reduced with visible improvements in the average TAT after 30 days. The FMCG manufacturer saved upwards of 90mins using the technology. They were able to

  • Handle more trucks
  • Improved productivity
  • Lower Logistics Costs
  • Lower Carbon Footprint
  • Reduce NVA 
  • Faster Deliveries

How to effectively initiate your Vendor Management process

 

The success of any organisation depends on its ability to manage its supply chain efficiently and effectively. In turn, the success of the supply chain depends on how well the company can manage its vendors. 

In the entire vendor management process, there are several stages. The strategic part of vendor management depends on how the company intends to build and manage its vendor base i.e. what type of vendors they want to work with etc. The right service partners can not only ensure that jobs are completed efficiently, but also be your growth partners.

 

Challenges faced in the vendor management process

The day-to-day and continuous activity of vendor operations remains the most time-consuming and inefficient process for the clients. 

When the organisation is able to reduce the time and effort spent on the discovery and evaluation of the vendors, without sacrificing the quality, they can truly save on resources. 

Such saving directly impacts the bottom line of the organisation and makes the supply chain more efficient.

The other early challenges that need to be overcome to ensure the smooth functioning of the organisation are:

  • Vendor Compliance Risk
    It is necessary to set standards that will help your organisation save time and money being spent,  This helps eliminate those vendors that do not comply with the company standards. 

  • Vendor Reputation Risk
    Checking the service quality of a vendor upfront, via background checks is a must before entering into a contract with them. While some vendors can execute the task well, others can end up delivering poor performances thus jeopardising your deadlines. 

  • Lack of Visibility
    It is crucial for organisations to have a centralised platform for managing their vendor data, which can be traced back at any point. This leads to better resource allocation and improved efficiency.

Aspects of the Vendor Management Process

With the proper vendor management benchmarks, for day-to-day vendor management, clients and manufacturing companies can add several benefits to their operations. Here are some of the initial and key aspects to consider for effective vendor management:

  • Identification and Establishment of Business Goals
    It is critical to commence by first establishing business goals that accommodate vendor involvement. This prevents efforts from being duplicated, reduces resource wastage and lastly, Vendor performance can also be assessed against these goals to measure organisational effectiveness.
  • Establishment of a Vendor Management Team
    The key task for this team would be to set KPIs for vendor management, select relevant vendors, negotiate the contracting process, periodically assess the performance of vendors and track all transactional activities.
    There are several roles that are key to vendor management, more specifically - Vendor manager, to facilitate and maintain relationships between the organization and vendors, Procurement manager who leads the procurement team and helps identify the right vendors and Procurement specialists who spend time analysing procurement objectives and needs, researching the market etc

  • Vendor Identification and selection
    Information asymmetry in the market leads to sub-optimal vendor selection.  The vendor management team should be able to identify the right vendors based on goals, KPIs, and other information. Venwiz as a platform solves for this by capturing relevant vendor information on their profiles.
  • Vendor Assessment 
    Clients would need to check vendors against their capabilities, scope of work, their experience, etc.

    Also Read:Vendor Digital Portfolio: A Must Have in 2021

  • Efficient collaboration & digital tracking
    Going beyond assessment, the vendor management team would need to evaluate vendor quality. Compare them against their counterparts, review their past experiences, look at what their previous clients have to say, etc.  

How Venwiz can aid in Vendor Management 

By now it is clear that effective management can have a positive impact on your business, but the question remains, how do you go about improving vendor management? The answer to this question is the core of our business at Venwiz.

Calibration as a Service – How the right calibration vendors can help your business

 

While calibration is not a new concept for anyone in the manufacturing industry, it retains its importance by being one of the most vital processes for shop floor managers. Manufacturers are required to undertake instrument calibration processes often, to ensure consistent results. 

Instrument errors can happen due to a range of factors such as environment, electrical supply, frequency of usage, wear and tear etc., and maintaining precision/accuracy are key metrics for the company's success. Calibration helps assert that accuracy. 

In this article, we will breakdown, what is calibration and why instrument calibration is important. We will also see, how finding the right vendors for calibration can positively impact businesses. 

What is calibration? 

Calibration is the measured accuracy and consistency of your equipment against a known measurement i.e. the standard.  The calibration standard is normally traceable to a national or international standard held by a metrology body. Periodic calibration helps guarantee reliable benchmarks and results for manufacturers.

 

Why is calibration important? 

Proper calibration ensures precise and accurate reading from the equipment, which ensures producing quality products. Inappropriate calibration or deviation from the calibration schedules leads to non-confirmative products, stock lot, or even scrapping of the entire material. These would result in huge losses, as they would either have to be scrapped or recycled. Most often these products reach customers and in turn get returned or registered as complaints, therefore affecting the reputation of the company.  

Also Read: How Venwiz is Powering Industrial Services through discovery, connection & collaboration.  

Examples of deviation from calibration schedules: 

  • In the case of a chiller application, typically in pharma or food processing, the floor temperatures play a very critical role. Even a single degree of variation could affect the product. If there is an error in the temperature sensor, which controls the chiller, the entire production carried out with that error is at stake
  • Processing temperature: A cup or a packing used for sealing is to be sealed at 100 degrees C. If the sensor has an error and shows 95 degrees instead of 100, the entire lot carried out with this temperature will suffer sealing issues at the customers end. 

Thus preventive maintenance and calibration are the first steps in performance control and very essential for manufacturers. 

When should you calibrate your measuring device?

  • Calibration needs to be undertaken periodically (monthly/quarterly/half-yearly/annually) as part of a manufacturing plant’s preventive or planned maintenance. 
  • If the instrument has been subject to electrical fluctuation or damage due to environmental factors etc.
  • If the instrument has not previously been calibrated.
  • It needs to be traceable as per ISO or legal metrology standards. 

Calibration supplier evaluation process: 

On Venwiz, we ensure all our calibration vendors meet the standard requirements during their registration process using a detailed toolkit. As part of our evaluation, we ensure: 

  • Vendors meet the regulatory and legal requirements - are equipped to check the specific requirements of instruments, Identifying & meeting these needs as part of the process. 
  • Check if vendor labs are NABL-accredited or have equipment for calibration that is NABL-certified. If there is no NABL certification, we check for ISO certifications. 
  • Access to vendors’ previous experience (which is verified), past clients, certifications & quality assessment.
  • Ability to share quotations and equipment details maintaining transparency on the platform
  • Calibration infrastructure- the methods they will use to calibrate test equipment. whether it will be on site or off site etc. 

Below we have illustrated a few case studies of how some of the vendors listed on Venwiz have helped clients with calibration requirements saving them time, money and resources. 

Case study in collaboration with M/s Cal Labs Pvt Ltd: 

In this case study we look at how, M/s Cal Labs Pvt Ltd, was able to reduce downtime for their clients who are one of India’s largest paper board manufacturers, and also help them acquire NABL-accredited results. 

The client discovered the following issues while  carrying out internal calibration of their temperature sensors : 

  • For in-house calibration of 40+ temperature sensors, NABL certifications were not available (this was a problem because NABL certification of equipment is mandatory to ensure the final products pass all quality control checks)
  • Undertaking it In-house would involve a huge downtime of 16hrs + (since they had just one testing equipment with 2 set points, and had to calibrate close to 40 sensors). 

With their years of experience and established credentials, M/s Cal Labs Pvt Ltd. were able to quickly solve the problem by providing their clients access to a large number of equipment (dry well calibrators) and valid certifications for all these sensors.

The job which could have cost the clients extensive wasted hours was executed in just 5 hours reducing the downtime drastically by 70% 

Case study in collaboration M/s Sri Calibration Pvt Ltd

The team at M/s Sri Calibration Pvt Limited works with large clients, many of whom are giants in the pharmaceutical industry, in and around Telangana & Andhra Pradesh. Given the seriousness and impact of their products, these pharma giants are often subject to stringent audits. Instrument accuracy is critical to product quality and safety, thus strict calibration practices are important 

  • To ensure standard compliance 
  • Reduce costs associated with lost batches and potential fines.

The clients were audited & happened to overlook certain critical information with respect to traceability in calibration, during one such audit. 

Being one of the leaders in calibration services, M/s Sri Calibration with an expert team immediately responded to their client on an ad-hoc basis, and the clients were able to clear the audit successfully without any deviations/observations.

Case study in collaboration M/s Vaibhav Instrumentation

The team at M/s Vaibhav Instrumentation excels in the field of instrument calibration. Thanks to their experience they were able to provide their clients services beyond simple calibration. Their client base is made up of 2000+ public & private companies across India, to whom they provide - site calibration, as well as sales and repair services (for electrotechnical instruments, thermal instruments, pressure instruments, force measuring machines, hardness testing, optical instruments, dimension instruments, etc).

During an onsite calibration of equipment with one leading manufacturer, it was found that 20% of the client's equipment had errors that went beyond the range of calibration and those could not be repaired.

The team at M/s Vaibhav Instrumentation proposed the replacement of faulty equipment instead of repair. Which is not what other calibration vendors would do. The suggestion to replace and not repair established trust with their clients. They also ended up reducing the cost impact that would have otherwise incurred, had they opted for repair (as recurring issues would mean frequent repairs). This level of service and supply in calibration by M/s Vaibhav Instrumentation gave them an edge over their competitors in the segment.
