02 March, 2018 | Being intelligently networked worldwide – that is the current requirement of digital transformation. Changing market requirements lead to new solutions that make it possible to process the large amounts of data efficiently and to generate important information out of them for further processes.
Industry 4.0 and digitalization are not only temporary trends. These developments, which have long since made their way into our daily work, give us the imagination to integrate all machines of production and logistics into the existing system and network them with each other. And the imagination goes even further by additionally monitoring and analyzing all process operations. The resulting challenge is to collect the data securely, to save them and to generate valuable information of them. This would lead to retrace all steps in production and logistics which contributes to quality improvements in the company. To meet these demands, solutions are needed, which accept such imaginations and challenges: Together with the machine manufacturer Henneken, world market leader in tumblers, the software company SLA from Quakenbrueck developed a cloud-based overall solution that meets the requirements of the latest developments in the age of digitalization. The solution integrates all machines in production, e.g. Henneken tumbler or brine mixer, via SLA-SmartBox by TCP communication into the existing IT-processes (production orders, recipes, traceability, process data visualization etc.). In addition, all produced data of the integrated production machines will be measured, buffered and automatically transferred to the Virtual Private Cloud. The web-based solution thus establishes a basis to link company-wide data, to which all authorizes users can access online. The continuous monitoring of the machines enables the visualization of various production parameters ranging from working hours, temperatures, rotations to maintenance cycles. Food producers benefit from real time-data and forward analysis, for example for service purposes. The valuable findings gained through automated processes also create a basis for business evaluations. New in this area is not only the entry into the secure cloud, but also the unique fusion of technology and technology and the resulting findings, which lead to productivity increases.
