March MES seminars offering real-life packaging demos

ATS will be hosting two MES Breakfast Seminars in March in Sydney and Melbourne, featuring live demonstrations of MES in action.

A live demonstration of a Carlsberg filling and packaging line where SAP orders are presented to an operator through a Simatic IT MES application will feature at both sessions.

“Not only is the demand response optimised but we also collect manufacturing intelligence data such as downtime, OEE, SPC and tracking and tracing information which is then made available to the local and international teams for continuous improvement opportunities,” said the organisers of the event.

“The system is considered world-class and is generating significant financial benefits to Carlsberg.”

The Sydney event will be held on 12th March in North Ryde, while the Melbourne event will take place on 19th March in Bayswater.

Both events will begin with breakfast at 8:30am, followed by three presentations as follows:
