Central interface, more productivity
Instead of many individual interfaces in the plant, there is now a central interface from openpack for all manufacturers and the connection of additional solutions. This is because one interface saves costs and ensures less effort. “This has made it possible to break down data silos and increase the transparency of our processes,” says the Plant Manager of the Hilpoltstein corrugated board plant, Bernhard Harrer.
Oliver Harlas, Electrical Maintenance Manager at Klingele, expects further positive effects: “More transparency will help us to identify sources of error and potential for improvement more quickly in the future. Ultimately, this will result in increased productivity and flexibility.“
The next steps
In addition to the Digital Factory openpack is currently developing a marketplace as the industry’s central procurement platform. Klingele has firmly planned to use the openpack marketplace to optimize their purchasing process for all operational requirements (e.g. spare parts, auxiliary and operating materials, C-parts, etc.).
