“And of course, after digitalization the communication between key persons is now totally “next level”, because now everybody has the same base to make different decisions,” said Gary when asked to point out some good results.

EPISODE #4 Ice cream factory digitalization gives you better sleep? Really?
The guest of the fourth episode is Martin Visnapuu the Production and Technical Director of Balbiino AS, Estonia.
Real-time data matters.
“On the shop floor, we have big screens where we display real-time data (how much product was made, who is currently working, the machine stops, etc). When the screens were down for like half a day, everybody came to me and asked: „Why is it down?” „Why can’t we see real-time data?” etc, ” discussed Martin.
Thank you Martin for bringing up those specific points!
Balbiino AS is the largest fully Estonian-owned producer of ice cream.
