tanalys Solutions Provide the Missing Data

To increase the yield the industry needs to:

  • improve product recovery
  • improve workers' productivity
  • decrease pilferage and wastage.

To monitor OER the industry needs to:

  • better monitor the quality of the fruits cut by harvesters,
  • reduce or increase the travelling time of Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFB) to cut costs while also maximising OER. This is made possible because tree2mill provides the "time" data to planters.

To increase workers’ productivity the industry needs to mechanise. Effective mechanising requires same day measurement of the:

  • impact of a new mechanised asset,
  • productivity of a new combination of mechanised assets with workers.

To achieve the above the industry needs data that is currently missing.

The tanalys Solutions - Digital Recording, tree2mill and stop-gaps

1. Digital Recording records digitally the number and the grade of each FFB cut by a given harvester and the weight of each trailer, each bin with its Average Bunch Weight (ABW).
2. tree2mill improves the quality and quantity of harvested fruits that reach the mill. More FFB reach the mill with a controlled OER thanks to tablets and data loggers that “talk” to each other to check the data captured only once by the checker.
3. stop-gaps makes harvesting/manuring “gaps” disappear overnight. To recover all ripe crops in time you need to know DAILY what palms Harvesters MISSED. The same with manuring.

Daily Reports Include:

• which palms have not been harvested that day
• which palms have not been fertilised that day
• the time taken for FFB to reach the mill, from the time it is cut to the time it arrives
• daily coverage of each harvester, manurer, in-field vehicle, tractor or lorry
• comparison of mechanisation/HR combinations

All this and much more is achieved through the use of tanalys’ solutions, without affecting your existing SOPs.

Three separate wireless precision monitoring tools provide three separate sets of data:

- The first tool counts, grades and weighs FFBs digitally (Digital Recording)
- The second tool relies on in-field assets coverage to monitor unattended FFBs (tree2mill)
- The third tool relies on in-field workers coverage to monitor unattended palms (stop-gaps)
