Capturing Process Data to Improve Manufacturing Performance
At the Automation Conference 2013, attendees learned about the benefits Campbell’s has received from its implementation of a data acquisition system some 10 years ago. In addition to the benefits, they also learned about the growing pains and pitfalls that came with the implementation as well as how Campbell's newly implemented Manufacturing Execution System helps with center lining and autonomous maintenance. The presenter, Tom Braydich, is director of controls and maintenance systems engineering at Campbell’s Soup Company. He is responsible for electrical engineering activities at all Campbell plants and its subsidiaries within North America as well as international Campbell plants located across Europe and Asia-Pacific.
