Campari Group is one of the major global players in the spirits industry, with a portfolio of over 50 brands spreading across global, regional and local priorities. Today it is the sixth-largest player worldwide in the premium spirits industry. It has a global distribution network trading in over 190 countries worldwide, with leading positions in Europe and the Americas.
Campari has decided to automate the monitoring process of production lines in the Group’s main plant. The high level of automation of the new Crodino bottling line in Novi Ligure has created the right conditions for the implementation of a “Manufacturing Performance Monitoring” solution integrated with the management systems.
The project is a model for subsequent extensions both to the further lines of the same plant, and to the main Italian and foreign production sites of the Group, so as to constitute a standard for monitoring Campari bottling processes.
Particular attention was given to the formalization and development of process indicators (KPIs).
Also, in terms of IT architecture perspective, the solution was designed to be easily implemented in the main Group plants respecting Campari’s Security constraints using a “hybrid” cloud solution, based on Azure “Paas” services.
The project involved the implementation of the following sedApta application modules
The solution, currently in the roll-out phase, immediately highlighted the main benefits that an automatic monitoring system can bring, in particular:
- Punctual control of the main inefficiencies due to machine downtimes
- Control of the defects of the input materials (bottles)
- Control of the main process parameters
- Accuracy in the declaration of the produced…and much more!
