Single, plant-wide programming solution

12 December 2016

Tetra Pak has launched a new version of its PlantMaster, enabling entire plant to be programmed through a single data management system. 

The latest upgrade includes the PlantMaster MES Suite (Manufacturing Execution Systems), a new software programme specifically designed to provide a user-friendly interface for the food and beverage industry.
The solution allows equipment from different vendors, which use separate information systems, to utilise a single set of tools that integrate all operations - from incoming raw materials to finished, palletised products. This streamlines data collection, facilitates accurate data analysis and helps improve efficiency.

Spanish beverage producer, DAFSA, is a user of the system. According to Jose Luis Campillos, owner of DAFSA the plant management system allowed the company to easily calculate every part of an operation. He said: “It allows us to optimise the processes and make us more efficient. With PlantMaster we will have all the information needed for planning and production management.”
