Field experiment in the Server

(Mynewsdesk) Pilot project on „Industry 4.0“ in Saxony-Anhalt Crowned with Success.Two combined harvesters cut and harvest a swath as wide as 12 m in the field of the Landwirtschaftliche Genossenschaft APH Hinsdorf, a farm cooperative near Köthen. Before the grain tank of the harvester gets filled and it stops its work, a software informs about the next transfer vehicle. A tractor that will take the grains to the silo drives past. The driver knows with certainty, thanks to information received by GPS, where he has to go and avoids by so doing unnecessary empty running. Everyone can see on the on-board tablets of the harvesting machines: Who drives when and to where, how full is the tank container, how wet are the grains, how big is the yield per hectare? The sensors of the combined harvesters and the tractors deliver all data to the server of the telecom service through mobile telephony. There they will be gathered, edited and implemented on graphics – all in real time.As one can see, harvesting is going to have a beautiful new look in the so-called fourth industrial revolution. It has indeed been witnessed on the fields near Köthen, even though this was in form of a young shoot for a starting. In the rising age of „Industry 4.0“, field work is also taking place on data servers. In a pilot project with the Deutsche Telekom, the agricultural engineering manufacturer Claas from Westphalia tested the orchestration of the entire field logistics last summer. The makers were surprised themselves by the outcome: „Our efficient operation allowed us to save time up to roughly 15 percent. Of course, that is ready cash, because one operating hour of a combined harvester costs a farmer roughly 1,000 euro“, says Thomas Schiemann, Head of Business division Industry 4.0 at the Bonn-based company. Following the results of the pilot project in Saxony-Anhalt, many requests have arrived from all over the world.„The project in Saxony-Anhalt was a real success for us“, recognizes Schiemann. „We have thereby written a bit of industry history, because we have set up the first ever functioning 4.0 project in Saxony-Anhalt.“ It goes far beyond the already existing communication between machines and puts information at the disposal of many other players like customers. Meanwhile, there are numerous 4.0 projects everywhere.According to a survey carried out by the German Engineering Association (VDMA), IT and Automation accounts for 30 per cent of production costs in machinery construction. For one out of five companies, the amount is even up to half of the costs. Currently, under the slogan „Industry 4.0“, all branches of industry are feverishly looking for ways to make their development, production and logistics processes better as well as to reduce their costs. The future is seen in complex software and communication solutions. With their assistance, manufacturing companies want to connect themselves better with suppliers, customers and competitors according to corresponding projects. They also want that products and machines „talk“ to each other and control the production process by themselves, not forgetting to save the history and course of the whole process.The Telekom company is willing to get involved in „Industry 4.0“ at the very front. „We have god networks, cloud-computing, a secure IT-plattform – we want to make use of this competition advantage“, says Thomas Schiemann. The effective harvesting is only an initial, practical and vivid practice-based project. A beginning: at the end of the fourth industrial revolution, self-propelled and „thinking“ vehicles with production processes shall be visible at the field, for instance. This step has not been reached so far at the field near Köthen. In this harvest, the machine manufacturer Claas wants to continue the field experiment with APH Hinsdorf from Saxony-Anhalt. This company is Germany’s biggest agricultural business with a total of 10,800 hectare farming surfaces. There, they are also looking into the future.Contact:Deutsche Telekom AG www.telekom.com Group ServicesCorporate CommunicationsFriedrich-Ebert-Allee 14053113 BonnTel. +49 228 181 94 380Mail: skoenig@telekom.deCLAAS KGaA mbH www.claasMünsterstr. 33 33428 HarsewinkelSwitchboard: +49 52 47 12 0E-Mail: infoclaas@claas.com

(Mynewsdesk) In Saxony-Anhalt, the Salutas Pharma GmbH Company operates one of the largest pharmaceutical centres in Europe.Sometimes it is a question of minutes. Even if the day a new generic medicine is to be delivered for the first time is a public holiday, already from midnight the Salutas Pharma plant situated in Barleben near Magdeburg is a hive of activity with pallets and medicine boxes being packed and loaded onto the waiting trucks. The ordered medicines are on the road the same night – on their way to wholesalers, chemists and hospitals. „A decisive factor for gaining a subsequent market share includes the fact of who is first commercially available“, states Norman Scheider, an engineer by profession who is responsible for logistics at Salutas Pharma.Salutas has established itself as a key production and logistics location within the Sandoz Group of Companies near the state capital of Saxony-Anhalt. Sandoz is the second biggest generic pharmaceutical companies in the world, while Salutas is one of the largest manufacturers for solid forms, i.e. finished medicinal products in tablet form. In Barleben, pharmaceuticals are developed, manufactured, stored and despatched in of the most modern and largest production and pharmaceutical centres in the world. In fact, some 180 of the around 1,600 employees at Salutas are engaged with logistics. All the material flow processes for the production plant and the national and international distribution are controlled and carried out here.The figures are abstract: „Last year, Salutas Pharma commissioned a total of 481 million medicinal packages. Of these, 205 million packages were delivered to the German market and some 253 for global export to a total of 75 countries – all from the logistics centre“, states logistics specialist Norman Scheider. 78,000 pallets were commissioned and delivered for export alone. This is only possible thanks to an efficient logistics concept. A high-bay warehouse, some 30 metres in height and containing 50,000 Euro-pallets, operates on a fully automated basis. The subsequent tote warehousing provides space for 143,000 returnable containers that is also system controlled for commissioning access. A storage maintenance system ensures the continual status control of all logistics processes. Specifically, this means that some 1,100 trucks a month drive in to the incoming and outgoing goods areas in Barleben.“We have to provide a rapid order processing together with short delivery periods. What is ready for despatching by 8 pm will be with the customer the next day within Germany.“ Logistics is a key cog in the system and has to function smoothly. „Logistics as well as warehouse capacity must not be a limiting factor for the production“, Scheider knows well. „The principle is to be as flexible as possible.This includes adapting storage capacities. For example, last year the anaesthetics warehouse was expanded so as to be able to react to the ever more quickly changing market.“It is necessary to optimise the processes on a constant basis. By, for example, investing in sorting technology, it proved possible to significantly reduce structural freight costs.Optimisation is essential in order to master the constantly growing challenges faced by pharmaceutical logistics specialists. Thus the struggle for customers increases. And the pressure to perform in the pharmaceutical industry also has an impact on logistics. This is because the high quality and hygiene standards continue to rise – despite the pressure of costs and increasing product range complexity. In this process, logistics specialists have to ensure the safe transport of temperature-sensitive products as well as the recycling and disposal. Let alone, of course, the documentation. Salutas bears the responsibility until the medicines have reached the customer – in most cases the wholesaler.The pharmaceutical company in Saxony-Anhalt has meanwhile continued its successful progress for many years. Operations were started in 1995, and since then have been continually expanded to reach a current total area of 337,000 square metres. Over 450 million Euros have been invested into this Sandoz Group of Companies enterprise, resulting in one of the most efficient pharmaceutical production and logistics centres in Europe. In addition to production, Salutas also possesses state-of-the-art plants for analytics, quality control and microbiology. The complete service provided by Salutas is rounded off by purchasing, packaging and commissioning, which are also handled internally.Author: Michael Falgowski
