Everyone loves chocolate, so when Corso got a call to build an MES at a chocolate facility, we jumped on it! We started with one of their major lines. They had a vision and and wanted to go all out with the integration.
Corso integrated each of the Sepasoft modules plus did a lot of customization of the modules:
OEE & Downtime Tracking
Track & Trace
Recipe and Changeover
Food and Beverage has some very strict regulations and the flexibility of the Sepasoft modules in conjunction with Corso allowed for easy iterations. This facility uses Siemens hardware and everything easily integrated with the rest of the system. All of these modules allowed the collection of a huge amount of information. In MES, collecting the data is the key and they certainly will have all the data they could possibly want.
Providing so much automation capability allowed the company to test new ideas and use the data to confirm results. This along with automating their scheduling provided efficiencies previously unthinkable.
At the end of the day, the visualization that the modules have provided have caused lasting impressions. The operations team is in love with OEE & Downtime Tracking. Corso is still working on perfecting the MES for this facility and providing world class metrics.
We are continuing the MES roll out to the rest of this facility as well as their other facilities across the world.
