Milk industry

Natural, basic food, milk which we consume every day is nevertheless the object of important transformations. And it is not only about packaging or marketing. In fact, the milk undergoes many treatments, from its collect to finished products, delivered to the consumer by convenience stores or hypermarkets.

Today, widely automated, the dairy processes are characterized by high rates of production and big necessity of production costs’ control by planning,  change of recipes’ time control and the analysis of performance.

Acquire an irreproachable traceability and an optimization of the production

 

To these requirements of productivity are added constraints of traceability, batch folder providing and ascending and descending genealogy of products : 

Many controls must be made, essential to guarantee the perfect security of products.
It is in this context that an efficient software of MES (Manufacturing Execution System) sets all its interest :
rigorous follow-up, optimization of the production, maximal productivity, best control of process to answer to ceaselessly growing demands’ elasticity.
