Schneider Electric APS Tank Management System for wineries

Thursday, 02 June, 2016 | Supplied by: Schneider Electric



Schneider Electric’s Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) Tank Management System enables users to visualise and optimise winery operations. The system helps users to manage scheduling activities in a unified environment and provides the opportunity to optimise daily operations at medium- to large-scale winery tank farms.

The system provides the ability to optimise production according to strategic business objectives and constraints, such as minimising the transfer distance of wine; reducing ullage; availability of vital resources such as workers and equipment; optimal tank selection according to required attributes; and maintaining sufficient free operating space.

The system models the winery tank form so that users can create, evaluate and optimise strategic scenarios on demand. The model includes: physical infrastructure (tanks and attributes — locations, sizes, etc, tank areas or groupings, fixed and mobile equipment — filters, centrifuges, floatators, etc); employees and shifts; current tank inventory; operations — in situ and transfers; mixing rules; intake yields; bottling requests; exports; and purchase orders.

The system has a simple and straightforward plain text integration with any winery ERP or information system. It provides users with a quick dashboard visualisation of current and future tank farm status.
