Lactate Harghita and Covalact Sfantu Gheorghe are food and beverages factories that expanded heterogeneously through the years, resulting in a fragmented control system with a variety of equipment and vendors. Therefore, the owner needed to upgrade to a modern and unitary process control system, based on a clear and complete image of the existing control system.
The scope of the Technical Project for the new Process Control Solution is to integrate 4 distinct applications that overview different production processes and to automate the processes that are currently conducted manually through Touchscreen interfaces. Moreover, the new control system was designed to be integrated with the ERP system, having a unitary information flow between production and sales. Last but not least, an energy and water consumption monitoring system was designed in order to reduce the overall cost for utilities.
