There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all automation solution. Whether you’re updating an existing system or building a new plant from scratch, automation solutions are plant-specific, product-specific, and process-specific.

Options abound for food and beverage processors looking to modernize their plants, or design state-of-the-art new systems. The generally accepted, industry-standard automation solutions include Allen Bradley PLC systems and WonderWare HMI systems. However, more and more specialty software and hardware packages are entering the marketplace as development costs are driven down, allowing original equipment manufacturers to create their own unique packages at very affordable rates. These are mostly used for stand-alone systems, but the flexibility of these solutions is improving almost daily. Sorting through all these options, and how to apply them to your production system, is at the heart of a good engineering-production collaboration.
