Minimize cleaning time in the food industry of Eschweiler, 22 October 2013: The manufacturing control system Fekor dramatically reduces the time for the cleaning of the plants in the food industry by involving those features in the planning, the cleaning time cause. Some users, it has significantly increased so the available investment maturities, at the same time, it relieves the designers of monotonous work. It was in production, filling or packing food: in many process steps are necessary to ensure, that consecutively manufactured products do not mix. Whether it is consecutive bottling water, lemonade or Cola or the production of lighter or darker chocolate the equipment must be cleaned repeatedly carefully when different products are processed. Honey, brittle, poppy seeds, nuts, spices or fruits are ingredients, after their processing machines and treadmills very must be thoroughly cleaned, because they adhere to equipment or some Problems with consumers.
Just think of intolerances or allergies, vegetarian or vegan food. Even organic foods and baby foods cause high cleaning when changing the product. So far, designers were employed to organise that the cleaning operations interfere as little as possible the production the production hours. Fekor optimizes the sequence of production automatically so that many cleanings become superfluous. So, a packaging company wins, for example, four facility hours, when a poppy-containing product is packaged on a system that has processed a product with poppy seeds, immediately afterwards. A welcome side effect is that Fekor alone by choosing the order can ensure that different products do not mix. Planning software takes into account the characteristics of the food industry computer-aided design systems found wide spread in many branches of industry. Most however have been developed for the non-food sector and are not aligned, the Special Conditions of food production to include criteria such as, for example, the limited shelf life of the products have only a secondary importance in mechanical engineering.

Ray Kurzweil brings even more insight to the discussion. Walkthrough tests are also necessary.
Because often are outdated the installation instructions or is missing completely, so that the packaging may starts under the wrong conditions. All necessary information will be collected only tough and slow or it fails completely, what subsequently forcing them to elaborate corrections. 2. A guideline for developing quality standards: In actual practice the claims are often too complicated, due to a lack of deeper knowledge. This causes an increased effort in the packaging, which can quickly add up to several hundred hours of work. “But also the opposite case can often be observed by an excess of standardization and the same dairy farm” will be pursued. The consequences range from functional restrictions for the user of the application to the exclusion. It should therefore well-founded experience used and for the employees of the Packaging issues and functions are defined, which are really important and must always work. In the guideline, it must also include that the software is later at any time easily removable.
