Digital solutions for food beverage
Individualized food thanks to individual solutions
“A unique box of chocolates specifically designed for my loved one.”
Tastes differ – and eating and drinking are getting more individual. The future of the Food & Beverage industry is production that is tailored to customer demand. Our digitalization solutions will enable you to economically realize individual customer demands. See for yourself.
The future is becoming increasingly digital
Flexibility is not an art but a question of technology
Optimal coordination of the ordering, manufacturing, and packaging processes enables production to react flexibly to customer requests. That is what digitalization means to us in the Food & Beverage sector, and that is how we ensure that production efficiently implements individual customer requests. This approach makes it possible for customers to satisfy their individual chocolate wishes, for example, or brew a beer exactly to their taste using a configurator.
Flexible recipe system
Siemens automation technology for the food and beverage industry ensures consistently high product quality through standardization of production processes and simplified production due to a flexible recipe system. Because even the smallest of orders deserves a great deal of attention, each order is individually packaged, labeled, and includes a list of ingredients.
Cost-effective implementation of individual customer requests
Each individual order has to be processed and synchronized with the existing order list. A Manufacturing Execution System provides valuable support with this task. This system creates a useful order list for the different variants in order to minimize production complexity and costs. It checks the availability of all the ingredients required for production. The production process is simulated in 3D before the order goes to production.
Greater flexibility with the SIMATIC IT manufacturing execution system
In view of challenges such as growing competition, shorter product life cycles, and ever-stricter legal regulations, it is increasingly important to have a consistent, end-to-end system in place. This system should make all relevant process, production, and business data available at all times – across all levels of the company and along the entire value chain. And that is exactly what SIMATIC IT offers. Our modular manufacturing execution system creates the transparency and efficiency required in the plant, creating the ideal conditions for shortening time-to-market and improving competitiveness, especially in the food and beverage industry.
Digital solutions for the food and beverage industry in practice
