New Belgium Brewing Company - Progressive Reputation

New Belgium Brewing Company’s new Wonderware software solution improves data visibility and analysis while saving operator time resulting in higher quality and increased production.

Goals

  • Install an Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence and Manufacturing Execution System that will improve inventory management, increase production accuracy and improve quality control

Challenges

  • Reduce time spent entering data and manually checking the movement of materials
  • The PLC-based batching system was not operating at its full potential
  • The clean-in-place (CIP) information was not readily accessible
  • Quality control procedures were performed by hand

Results

  • “Track and trace” capability enables tracking of any product within 30 minutes
  • Key Performance Indicator (KPI) scorecards provide immediate information about performance
  • Historical analysis enables optimization of energy use
  • Faster trouble shooting; improved response times for corrections
  • Early detection of product deviations
  • Projected ROI for integration costs will be realized within two years

"From an administrative perspective, we save a lot of time. From a user’s perspective, we minimize frustration. That’s the number one benefit." - Igor Valuyev, Chief Electrical and Automation Engineer
