#F&BTechTalks: Innovative concepts for the food and beverage industry

Webinar series: Secure competitive advantages in the food and beverage industry with digitalization

#F&BTechTalks: Discover new optimization potential with innovative concepts

Discover proven digitalization concepts for existing and new systems in the food and beverage industry, with which you can secure competitive advantages. In the practice-oriented webinars you will learn how our customers were able to optimize their systems successfully and how you can implement these findings for your company.

The acquisition, processing and archiving of batch data and the convenient creation of comprehensive production reports for batch processes are the core functions of PM-QUALITY. Integration into the automation takes place on the HMI or SCADA system and ensures optimum transparency at the line level. Scalability and openness ensure integration into both classic control rooms and modern, browser-based HMTL5 user interfaces. PM-QUALITY provides a cost-efficient basis for OT/IT integration through a variety of interfaces such as REST APIs.

Have you ever wondered how you can reduce engineering time in your projects by automating repetitive tasks?

How to provide a standardized solution independent of the system integrator/OEM selected? 

And how to reach optimal resource efficiency in engineering through innovative platform concepts? 

This webinar will clarify how efficient engineering in TIA  through automated code generation looks like. Based on the Library of Basic Processes (LBP), or any library of your choice, the Siemens Automation Toolkit makes mass data engineering easy as pie. 

You benefit from, decreased engineering time, reduced complexity in your overall project design, minimized risks due to avoiding engineering faults and high performance and simple configuration.

Plant manufacturers and system integrators are increasingly challenged to create more and more powerful automation solutions for achieving operational efficiency at ever lower costs. At the same time, end customers demand improved process stability and plant availability without an increase in the engineering that is required.

The Library of Basic Processes (LBP) is a tested and design-oriented control module block library for the TIA Portal with monitoring and control content for several WinCC platforms. With this library, you can solve a wide variety of automation tasks very efficiently and significantly reduce the engineering workload and thus the configuration costs as well as the project duration.

Tecnomatix® Plant Simulation allows you to model, simulate, explore and optimize production and logistics systems. These models enable analysis of material flow, resource utilization and logistics for all levels of manufacturing planning from global production facilities to local plants and specific lines, well in advance of production execution.

Recipe control and in time production of batches is a crucial aspect of the production within the Food and Beverage industry. SISTAR ® process automation system is the first choice for process automation at facilities of all sizes in the food and beverage industry. It is economical, easy to manage, seamlessly scalable, enables fast engineering, offers easy reporting, is extremely stable in operation, and delivers precise results.

The requirements for tracking and tracing in food and beverage industries are similar to other process industries like pharma and chemical.

Even if the products are not as cost intensive and critical as the products of other industries, product safety and production according to the rules of the food and drug regulations become more and more important. By recording material movements with Opcenter Execution Process, the history of a product can be build up. The entire process of the production is transparent, and this ensures the reliability of sustainability claims, in the areas of human rights and labor.

While the plant structure should not be changed and the production processes should not be affected, productivity must be increased. By using WinCC OA IOT Suite, this can be realized with little effort. IOT Suite was developed to integrate existing systems from different manufacturers in Industry 4.0 concepts with the latest technology and innovative approaches in the food and beverage industry. The solution is scalable for simple as well as complex automation applications and can be put into operation in less than one hour.

Increase productivity thanks to the integration of production and packaging lines: Many production and packaging lines consist of stand-alone machines that are purely mechanically coupled by conveyors and sensors. The lack of integration leads to unnecessary downtime, makes efficient diagnostics difficult and reduces the efficiency of the line. In the webinar, we will present the line integration concept developed by Siemens, which uses a standardized approach to make all relevant processes within the lines visible on a central line monitoring system.
