Five-step method for selecting and purchasing food-processing equipment.
The first step in selecting and purchasing food-processing equipment is a clear identification of the need. The expense of purchasing and installing capital equipment can be a tremendous burden for any business. Questions should be asked such as:
Will the business profit more from the fulfillment of this need compared to the other needs?
How will this item fit in with, or satisfy future needs?
Is the need consistent with the businesses’ long-term goals?
Does the need satisfy a safety or regulatory requirement?
Will the end result improve product quality?
Once the need has been clearly identified, the second step in selecting and purchasing food-processing equipment is to define the requirement. What will satisfy the need? This step requires the most work, but achieves the highest reward. A complete definition of your requirement will enable you to effectively communication with potential suppliers. The result minimizes confusion between the purchaser and the supplier, allowing firm bids that eliminate hidden costs. Customer dissatisfaction and frequency of equipment returns or retrofits are reduced.
One type of document that is commonly used by government and industry to define requirements is called a specification. Over the years, specifications have been stereotypes as being unnecessarily wordy and confusing. This need not be the case. A good specification should be brief, simply worded, and useful for the intended purpose. Unfortunately, a recognized specification format does not exist for food processing equipment; however, the author has developed a model based on experience in the food industry. An example specification for a product filler is given in the appendix.
