Growing product diversity on the one hand, increasing cost pressure on the other hand: to be successful in the bakery industry it takes a production that’s equally flexible and economic. Digitalization can help to create consistent automation, from raw material intake to shipping, from field to ERP level. This way you benefit from efficient workflows that enable highest quality at reduced costs.
The Digital Enterprise enables manufacturing companies to streamline and digitalize their entire business process, seamlessly integrating suppliers into the mix. They can begin at any point of their value chain, from product design to service, and can extend digitalization gradually, depending on their current needs.
The first phase comprises the digital design of new bakery products. The SIMATIC IT R&D Suite flexibly supports formulation and enables simulations to optimize recipes in a virtual environment. At the same time the new product is being validated to comply with all regulation. The packaging and labeling are also developed and tested in a fully virtual environment with Teamcenter NX.
The second phase starts with the digital planning of the production line wit Line Designer and validating the production capacities for bakeries with Plant Simulation. This enables to exercise different what-if scenarios and to design the optimal production line.
The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) can quickly, flexibly, and efficiently handle the mechanical, electrical, and automation design. Integrated workflows increase the engineering efficiency for the production process as well as for packaging.
The production phase is the longest phase in the entire lifecycle of a plant. Most of the data is generated during this stage. This information is needed to ensure that the plant is always operated in the optimal range and to make the best business decisions. This requires the complete transparency and availability of this data across all corporate hierarchies. SIMATIC IT acts as a bridge to the actual production process, which is optimized continuously. This provides for the consistent exchange of data between the ERP system and production.
Specific apps based on MindSphere, the cloud-based open IoT operating system, can help to continuously improve production. This facilitates entirely new possibilities, such as predictive, preventive, and corrective maintenance concepts that offer real added value through greater plant availability.
Siemens offers services that increase the availability and efficiency of Bakery and Confectionary plants. Various services improve the system transparency and help to detect defects on electrical and mechanical components before they occur. They help to reduce energy and maintenance costs - you can schedule maintenance at the right time within the production cycle.
Energy Analytics can tell you where and why you are wasting energy, as well as advice you on what measures you can take to reduce the energy consumption.
Industrial Network Validation helps to find hidden network problems before bigger production ussues occur. Additionally you get transparency about the potential network availability and your network is future-proof for Industry 4.0 challenges.
Migration of “mature” long-serving Automation Systems will prolong the life of your machines and increase productivity at reasonable costs!
Industrial Security Services help to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept.
Modern production requires fast support and professional trouble-shooting to reduce production losses and ensure high reliability and availability.
Many companies in the baking industry are using our products and solutions. Here’s an example.
