“Digital Data and Equipment Performance at Tetra Pak”
This talk will present Tetra Pak as a company, and the work that is currently conducted to integrate our equipment into systems that bring value to customers. Tetra Pak has a long history of innovation, and has been collecting product performance data from the operations of customers for a long time. This data can be used to increase value for customers, especially when addressing the digitalization of the domain in which the company is operating. There is however, some dilemmas associated with this. This talk will address these dilemmas, as well as address the Tetra Pak intentions going forward.
