ARLA FOODS AMBA – CHEESE PRODUCTION REIMAGINED

Arla Foods is a global dairy company that produces dairy products, including cheese. The company has a strong focus on sustainability, ensuring that their products are made in an environmentally friendly way. To maintain high standards and improve efficiency, Arla Foods enlisted the help of DIS/CREADIS to optimize their cheese mixing process.

Challenges

Arla Foods faced several challenges in their cheese mixing process. First, there was a lack of overview of the electrical system and programming software. This made it difficult to detect and address errors on the production line. As a result, many errors occurred on the production line, which led to delays and inefficiencies. There was also no buffer when an error occurred, which caused further delays in the production process, while a lack of overview and error tracking made it difficult to identify the root cause of problems and take steps to prevent them.

Solution

DIS/CREADIS worked closely with Arla Foods to develop a comprehensive solution that would address all these challenges. First, all electrical documentation was updated to provide a clear overview of the system. This made it easier for the company to identify and address production line errors. Second, all unused programming was removed, which improved the efficiency of the system. Third, new buffer segments were installed to ensure that errors did not disrupt the entire production process. Finally, a new alarm system was developed to provide a clear overview of system errors and ensure that they were addressed quickly.

Benefits

The solution developed by DIS/CREADIS resulted in substantial improvements in the production line. The new alarm system in the SCADA system allowed Arla Foods to track errors in real time and address them quickly, reducing delays and improving efficiency. The new buffer segments also helped to reduce delays in the production process. As a result, Arla Foods was able to optimize their cheese mixing process, resulting in improved product quality and increased production capacity. Overall, the new solution helped Arla Foods to maintain their high standards of production while improving efficiency and reducing waste.
