Software optimises production and packing systems


FOOD and drink IT specialist CSB-System International has developed a new software programme that provides optimal planning, control and monitoring of production and packing systems in order to ensure consistently high levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

The CSB linecontrol® software establishes an online link with all equipment on the line. This enables it to provide real-time information on current capacity utilisation and the performance of individual machines. This data can be accessed on the production line or delivered remotely to a specific computer.
The software can identify potential bottlenecks or other stoppages on the line. Any problems can be pinpointed to the exact machine for fast targeted troubleshooting that minimises unplanned system shutdowns or downtime. In addition, CSB linecontrol® helps companies to reduce rejects and the incorrect labelling of products.
