In systems, for which a comprehensive, consistent and extendable production control is recommendable, mostly industrial Panel PCs are used today. It this context it is important that it is no isolated application but that a link to further client operating devices or a connection to superior management systems such as SAP is possible. For this application Zeppelin Reimelt offers with the web-based batch management system PrismaWEB PE the perfect solution for medium-sized and industrial operations. Management of components and recipes, system visualization, production scheduling, archiving, online process reporting and follow-up, management of suppliers.
Beside the standard functions, i.e. metering and management of components and recipes, the operator has access to production schedulings which can be based on recipes or articles depending on the request. By means of the SQL data base the inventory control data of the recipes, components and incident messages are stored in regular intervals.
In order to allow a fully automated production around the clock reliable and sophisticated hard- and software systems are required. Zeppelin Reimelt can look back to nearly 50 years of experience in control engineering and knows very exactly the requirements of the food industry world-wide.
The web-based batch management system PrismaWEB2 does not lay down any limits for a modern production control. PrismaWEB2 can do more than the common standard systems and provides in many areas the functionalities of a MES system (fabrication management system) such as e.g. tracking and tracing of batches and warehouse management. In the food industry a consistent transparency of the production process is a pre-requisite to be competitive on the market.
A multi-stage production is no problem for Prism aWEB2: Liquid sponge, sourdough and other pre-mixtures can be handled as separate recipes or as a part of the main recipe and can be produced at an earlier point of time while the respectively required total quantity is determined by the system through the production scheduling.
The use of data bases is a must for high-capacity recipe controls, last but not least to ensure the traceability of raw materials and batches.
For this purpose most systems support the application of barcode or RFID technology (RFID = Radio Frequency IDentification), i.e. systems for the exact identification of raw materials or also equipment such as mixing bowls.
Through the data base the collected data can be directly evaluated or provided to the company management system. Individual interfaces to such systems are also possible.
