Sepasoft’s Recipe/Changeover Manager was implemented in the packaging system for a major pet food manufacturer
Sepasoft’s Recipe/Changeover Manager was implemented in the packaging system for a major pet food manufacturer on top of an existing HMI and control system. This new system allows correlation of Recipe/Changeover Management data with the OEE Downtime metrics from the Sepasoft OEE Downtime module.
The implementation of the Recipe/Changeover Management Module streamlined the process of recipe driven production with the existing control system. It was possible to incorporate new functionality without drastically changing the operation of the machines, simplifying operation for the users. The recipe features are integrated into each machine to distribute and manage the data affecting multiple lines.
Combining Recipe and OEE data in analysis has expanded the customer’s ability to correlate production choices with performance and quality. Based on the first phase of the project, the customer plans to expand the MES usage to additional sections of the plant driving continuous improvement plant-wide.
