Gebo Cermex takes us through its Agility 4.0 concept and how various technologies can be used in F&B production.
Today’s factories are focused on producing large quantities in bulk. Tomorrow’s factories will be smaller but far more agile, reflecting the overarching consumer trends of personalization and customization, explains Gebo Cermex (which you can read about here).
Gebo Cermex’s Agility 4.0 concept has five pillars:
Virtual factory: for example, envisioning how planned production lines will operate
Smart factory systems: the use of automation and robotics, maximising efficiency.
Connected factory: communicates information across the factory, detecting and alerting managers to incidents in the production schedule
Eco-friendly: smart energy consumption will help factories become more efficient
Extended factory: switching from mass production to smaller sites
Gebo Cermex was talking to BeverageDaily at Brau Beviale in Germany this month.
