A large cheese company in the Great Lakes region of the United States manufactures, processes, and packages cheese for shipment all over the United States.
To properly produce cheese, the operators need the ability to monitor various temperatures, pressures, utilities, and production numbers. The cheese company was previously using an outdated trending application. Their old trending application was hard to use, did not perform adequately, and was making their production process difficult. Using their old trending application, it was also hard for the day shift to troubleshoot problems that occurred during the nightly operations.
After switching to our Historian and trending tools the cheese company is now very happy. They now have the ability to quickly create and store charts that trend specific key performance indicators (KPI‘s). They are also able to trend values that they were previously unable to. Our products have saved the cheese company operators time, and given them the ability to know what is happening in different areas of the plant.
We have come a long way in a short amount of time just in diagnosing problems. I am very happy with the product. Various people with different responsibilities can look at the trend charts and see things like what the air temperature in the processing room was last night. Why did it get cold? Which valves were opened and closed at certain times?

Our products help Philip Morris ensure optimal product quality and efficiency.
