In addition to the opportunities brought by technology, the competitive environment and the need for standardization in products have made the automation of feed factories an inevitable phenomenon today. In this way, human-induced errors are minimized and all processes can be precisely measured and improved.

Automation is defined as shared working between humans and machinery. The percentage of overall sharing between them reveals the level of automation. Among the benefits that automation brings to business owners, the first ones that come to mind are quality and precision, as well as savings in labor, raw material, and electricity.

Today, feed factories have to transform into modern structures in order to maintain their existence in the market. It is necessary to automate all processes, and in this way, the data must be transferred to the next stages in the most accurate and fastest way. In this context, automation of pre-production, production, and post-production processes is an inevitable step. In this way, all processes can be measured and improved and human-induced errors can be minimized.

In an enterprise where measurement and analysis data are recorded manually and processes are not digitally interlinked, it seems inevitable that human-induced errors will occur and the company will suffer some preventable losses.

Keeping a process under control and improving it can be possible only through constant and precise measurement. Thanks to automation, all processes of the factories can be monitored and improved. It should be noted that any process that is not measured and controlled cannot be improved.
