Barilla, Italian food multinational (market leader for pasta, sauces and bakery) decided to implement with Autoware a Plant Supervisor in their new Sauce plant.
The company approached a MES project to get an operations overview, looking for a tool to support operators and management in making informed decisions, while collecting data from various systems present in the plant. Particular attention is required for the management of industrial kitchens, to guide the operators during all stages of processing and track the movements of raw materials, semi-finished and finished goods.
The MES solution proposed by Autoware is based on Wonderware standard technologies, flexible and scalable, able to evolve with the plant changes. Integrated with all the plant systems, Autoware solution collects data interfacing with PLC, field instruments, supervisors and line database of different suppliers, historicizes all the data and offers an instant view of all key information through reports and dashboards.
