Making beer manufacture more flexible and more efficient thanks to the Digital Enterprise
Digitalization makes it easier to adapt quickly to new market situations
Consumers alert to trends rather than traditional beer drinkers: breweries have to adapt to a changing market that is also being served by an increasing number of new providers. To survive and succeed, breweries need to expand their portfolios both cost-efficiently and in line with the highest quality standards. Digitalization with the Digital Enterprise solution portfolio plays a key role in this process. It gives them the tools to be able to respond quickly, flexibly and cost-efficiently to current market demands, with no loss of quality. Digitalization makes the flood of data in breweries transparent and easy to follow: from stock receipt to shipping, from the brewing vat to management, and from product development to the glass.

Greater performance and transparency in the brewing and beverage industry
The BRAUMAT® V8.0 process control system ensures high transparency, improved flexibility and optimum quality through the effective management of recipe-controlled processes.
Clear batch reports are succeed quickly with the integration of the batch log and the simplified configuration of the process parameters. In addition, the user can create additional reports with the help of MS-Excel. Furthermore, BRAUMAT V8.0 can now also be connected to the established PM-Quality option and thus offers further reporting options.
At the control level, version 8 supports the new SIMATIC S7-1500 as well as the well-known SIMATIC S7-400 controller. Significantly expanded functions in the areas of reporting, weighing technology and cyber security are further highlights of the BRAUMAT V8.0.
The new ordering options with the free availability via Industry Mall and as free trial download simplify the ordering process.
The BRAUMAT V8 is also available in the Lean Edition in addition to the standard version and thus meets the specific requirements of small breweries and craft brewers.

Master the challenges of complexity in manufacturingManufacturers are facing an explosion of complexity: In consumer-driven markets, demand for personalization and individualization is growing. New variants, produced fast and with highest quality, can be handled easier thanks to Digital Threads.
Discover the Digital Threads in the food and beverage industry
Digital Threads are a critical part of our Digital Enterprise strategy. Each of the five threads anchors in one of the Digital Twins from product development all the way to tracking the final product. The Digital Threads help solving the most important customer problems independent of company size and market. They can be implemented individually for each company, starting where value is created.
Leverage your existing IP for new projects
Integrated Program and Lifecycle Management is a revolutionary way of working, integrating, and orchestrating relevant business processes – from Brand Portfolio Management to Product Lifecycle Management. Whenever you create a new initiative, you can look back at all the IP you have in your organization and leverage it. For example, if you have a new flavor you only have to invest the work to create the new flavor. Then you can reuse everything you’ve created for previous products, adapt it and save a lot of time.
Pave the way for continuous innovation
In the food and beverage industry, the product comprises for example the beverage and the packaging. Developing a new product requires a multidisciplinary design. Building a bridge between R&D and manufacturing for beverage and packages with Smart Product and Process Design helps accelerate development. Simulation, validation, documentation, and use of virtual assets all around the world for are the foundation for continuous innovation.
Adapt to changing requirements
Product Design and Optimization enables validation and commissioning of new facilities or modifying existing facilities in the virtual world. This helps explore many different possibilities and save significant amounts of time and money, for example with the Module Type Package industry standard and Digital Twins. You can also use virtual reality to validate the cooperation between humans and robots for ergonomic workplaces.
Combining the real and the digital worlds
Flexible Manufacturing provides seamless transition from the digital world with design, engineering, and simulation to shopfloors with the right technology to effectively manage operation and automate execution.
