In a fully automated industrial bakery, there is a huge need for tracking down each and every detail, not only of what they produce but also on what they consume. We do this by measuring one of the smallest units of measurement we have inside an industrial bakery: a keeve.
Based upon this keeve we can track the deviations in dosages and the amount of used material at any moment in time. These values can than be used to optimise the amount of ordered raw materials in function of the actual usage. All of the captured data is than stored on a centralized industrial PC (Siemens iPC) which in turn is retrieved and analyzed by a custom written application.
