"ProFood World Magazine recently published an article highlighting important content presented at the PMMI Town Hall: Tips for Conducting Successful Virtual FATs webinar. The article discussed key takeaways and best practices to follow when conducting virtual FATs."

In October, ProFood World released an article detailing the steps needed to carry out a successful Virtual Factory Acceptance Test (vFAT). This important information was brought to you by the heavily attended PMMI Town Hall webinar. The OpX Leadership Network developed and released a critical industry solution addressing vFAT best practices earlier this Summer as a result of the quickly changing landscape due to COVID-19. Panelists Randall Cotton, J.M. Smucker Company, James Couch, Smithfield Foods, Brian McCann, Polypack, Inc. and Lanel Menenzes, Mettler Toledo each walked the audience through contents of the vFAT OpX work product. Items of discussion included the vFAT Checklist, pre-FATs, Site Acceptance Tests (SAT) and time tables important to the assessment. This combination of CPG and OEM panelists provided an excellent mix of perspectives on how to approach the work product and what has worked best for their teams.
