Making beer manufacture more flexible and more efficient thanks to the Digital Enterprise

Bildunterschrift

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.

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.

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.

Gain insights and continuously optimize products and production

Use the latest technologies to capture data and gain new insights.
