Digitalization is revolutionizing CPG manufacturing
Digitalization is transforming the way we live, work, and play, and it’s driving innovation in all sectors, including the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry. With changing trends, customers are looking for value-driven products that meet their needs anytime, anywhere, making it challenging for CPG manufacturers to stay competitive. That’s where Siemens Opcenter comes in.
Meeting the demands of new-generation consumers with value-driven innovation
The new generation of consumers is less brand loyal and more demanding, which forces CPG manufacturers to reorganize the way they produce. They need to offer value-driven innovation and value-adding products to meet their customers’ changing needs rapidly. Siemens Opcenter is a powerful solution that enables CPG manufacturers to adapt to these changing trends while remaining efficient, flexible, and without taking any risks.
How Siemens Opcenter enables efficient and flexible CPG manufacturing
Siemens Opcenter is an efficient and flexible platform that ensures high-quality products. It supports CPG manufacturers from ideation to realization, leveraging the full value of digitalization. With Opcenter, manufacturers can seamlessly manage the execution of their production using the digital twin of their manufacturing processes, linking the virtual and real worlds to support perfect products from the first run.
From Ideation to realization: Siemens Opcenter supports the product journey
At the beginning of the product journey, Opcenter Research, Development, and Laboratory utilize a digital twin of the formula to drastically reduce time to market. From there, the formula is seamlessly transferred to Opcenter execution processes for the realization of the product on the shop floor. Opcenter Advanced Planning and Scheduling feed Opcenter execution processes with detailed scheduling to optimize the use of available equipment and resources.
