ANUGA FoodTec 2018

March 20-23, 2018, Cologne | Hall 7.1, Booth C 71/C 79

Digital Enterprise – implement now.

What if we can enhance your flexibility in producing bakery and/or confectionary goods so that you are enabled to customize and individualize products to be mass-produced?

Come to our booth and we discuss with you based on your needs what could be the possible solution. 

Certainly we can support you also in other segments within the Food & Beverage industry.


Our solutions based on your needs

Product Design

The first phase involves digitally developing a new product. The SIMATIC IT R&D Suite flexibly supports the recipe and makes it possible to run simulations in order to virtually optimize recipes prior to production. At the same time, it checks whether the new product meets all regulations. The packaging and labels are also developed and tested virtually with Teamcenter NX.

Production Planning

The second phase begins with digital production planning based on our Line Designer planning tool for the layout of production lines. The plant is then tested and further optimized with our Tecnomatix Plant Design software to maximize throughput and availability.

Production Engineering

Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) quickly, flexibly and efficiently handle the mechanical, electrical and automation design, as bottom up engineering approaches. Engineering efficiency can be increased for the production process as well as for bottling and packaging in the manufacturing part through integrated workflows.

Production Execution

In phase 4, SIMATIC IT acts as a bridge to the actual production process, which is optimized continuously. The universal database makes it possible to easily connect the ERP system to the automation technology and thus increase transparency through detailed reports and overviews.


Relevant KPIs for the production line and the process part are displayed and evaluated by specific apps on the basis of the cloud-based, open IoT operating system, MindSphere. This facilitates new services such as predictive, preventive and error clearance services that generate real added value through higher plant availability.
