If you are an SI interested in growing your customer base in the craft brewing, distilling and winery businesses or are involved in automating similar batch processes, you won’t want to miss this first-hand look at state-of-the-art automation solutions born out of many projects within the USA and a continuous stream of customer feedback.
Plus, you’ll get to look under the hood of Siemens’ unique “Brewing Template” based on its industry-proven Totally Integrated Automation architecture. This configurable application is completely open source, extremely scalable and has been successfully deployed in breweries and distilleries across the U.S. and around the world.
This flexible solution, while specifically designed for the craft brewing and distilling industries, can easily be adapted to others as well.
In under an hour, you will:
- Understand that even very small craft breweries and distilleries automation can save valuable time and resources.
- Be able to address the needs of customers who are faced with both capacity and resource constraints and allow them to consistently make great product while keeping “craft” in craft brewing.
How? This solution allows the brewery operators to concentrate their resources on truly manual tasks like managing raw materials, sample taking, cleanliness, quality control and product development. The control system, meanwhile, stores and manages recipes, monitors and controls the running process, and keeps records of the process to help automate reporting.
There will be ample time for Q&A, so bring your questions!
