The Need: Real-time, On-demand Information at Their Fingertips
Nestlé Waters had been using a cumbersome, paper-based
system to collect and analyze data. When issues arose
that required immediate attention, the company’s quality
engineers had to disrupt operators on the production line to
retrieve the necessary data.
Nestlé Waters’ goal was to implement a system that would enable them
to easily monitor, review, and trend real-time quality data. In addition,
they wanted to standardize on one solution—across all their facilities—
to complement their existing IT infrastructure.

The Need: Real-time, On-demand Information at Their Fingertips
InfinityQS Professional Services & Software
Facilitate Workflow
After a thorough needs-analysis evaluation, Nestlé Waters determined that InfinityQS®
solutions best satisfied their criteria for quality documentation and analysis. To
accelerate and streamline the software implementation, the Nestlé Waters IT team
leveraged InfinityQS Professional Services. These expert services are provided by teams
of skilled, certified quality engineers, industrial statisticians, and Six Sigma Black Belts—
all with extensive manufacturing experience.
The Takeaway:
InfinityQS solutions provide a high
level of built-in configurability. If
you are also looking for this level of
flexibility, our Professional Services
teams can help you configure your
Quality Intelligence solution so that it
works the way you do.
The teams worked closely during all stages of the implementation, including planning, implementation
design, and project management. From an IT standpoint, the implementation focused on two separate
manufacturing units: Retail Manufacturing and Home & Office Manufacturing. They spread the
implementation across 16 Retail sites, as well as eight Home & Office sites, and integrated them with
corporate headquarters.
The Retail objectives were to:
› Upgrade all factories to the latest InfinityQS software release
› Organize the purchase of PCs required for workstations
› Image new PCs to the Nestlé Waters standard and install InfinityQS
› Ensure that the project leader had all necessary rights and permissions to access the servers
The Home & Office objectives were to:
› Format existing servers
› Install SQL databases and InfinityQS on the servers
› Purchase new PCs, image, put users in the user group, and grant necessary permissions
and access

Accelerating Process Improvements
Track Trends to Make More Accurate
& Timely Decisions
With InfinityQS solutions in place, Nestlé Waters now has real-time visibility
over production processes—both within individual sites and at the corporate
level across dozens of factories. By tracking trends in quality data, they
are able to make more accurate and timely decisions about process
Nestlé Waters is using InfinityQS SPC software to review sampling frequency optimization
and inline monitoring, as well as to track quality improvement projects such as:
Cap torque and application analysis, supporting retail factories in
comparing different cap vendors
Lightweight bottle initiative, enabling process optimization to ultimately
reduce unnecessary full bottle testing
Air-consumption process data capture automation, using analysis
functions to optimize production processes

at Every Level
Other improvements have come at a practical level.
“You can read the data rather than having to decipher
the writing of 150 different people. The data is at
your fingertips,” said Julie Chapman, Quality Systems
Manager at Nestlé Waters.
Nestlé Waters is also taking full advantage of InfinityQS’ realtime alarms. Any events that occur require assignable cause and
corrective action entries. Plant floor operators review, evaluate, and
respond to any events that occur—before they cause quality issues.
It is ultimately easier for the operator. Even with the
minimal computer skills many of the operators had in
the beginning, the overwhelming consensus is that they
prefer using InfinityQS over a paper system.
