      Co-ordinate the jobs and material in your filling line with ease

      Line Management allows the entire filling and packaging process to be co-ordinated from a central position – from the definition of the 
      order-specific production route to pallet labelling. 

      Line Management provides a continuous flow of information, from production planning right through to the order for the line and 
      individual machine. To do so, the software considers your line to be a coherent system with production orders but not a row of isolated 
      individual machines.

      At a glance

      With Line Management you can 

      • optimally coordinate and process all orders in the filling and packaging area.
      • reduce manual intervention, as the system takes over communicative and monitoring tasks.
      • integrate label printers and coding devices into the line in order to automatically print important product information and best-by dates.

      How Line Management works

      • Processing of individual orders with different batch sizes and 
        short reaction times
      • Online routing: Changes the route of the product within the 
        line while the order is already in progress
      • Ends orders based on efficiency (right down to the specific 
        tank/bottle or number of units)
      • Validates the materials used for optimum trackability
      • Supplies all lines and machines involved in the order (including 
        printers and coding devices) with specific parameters
      • Standardised interface for the connection of any third party 
      • Organises highly flexible production lines, even over multiple 
        lines (for different products or routes)

      Module overview

      • Order Management
        Order Management

        Central order specifications and planning for all machines

        • Serves for central planning and creation of orders for production lines 
        • Defines the machines to be used based on routes, articles and parts lists
        • Groups together orders to avoid downtimes (per machine if possible)
        • Provides an automatic adjustment of the target quantity while taking rejections into account
        • Continuously displays the order status and progress
        • Records order-specific data and information and ensures continuous traceability of the produced items
        • Order transfer and check-back signal from higher-level systems (ERP, PPS) via standardised interfaces
        • Online routing: Makes it possible to change the route of the product in the line while the order is in progress
      • Order Execution
        Order Execution

        Order co-ordination and control of the peripheral devices

        • Distributes, controls and co-ordinates the line orders on the individually involved machines and line components
        • Prevents the operator entering incorrect information by reducing interaction with the machine
        • Ensures efficient order changes by producing precisely related to tanks and containers
        • Accelerates handling parts change-over by means of intelligent reduction of gap modes between two orders
        • Provides the printers with order-related information for coding pallets, packs and containers
        • Reads, validates and records scanner results
      • Material Management
        Material Management

        Order-specific supply and removal of materials including material validation

        • Organises the material supply and disposal in production lines
        • Orders raw, auxiliary and operating materials based on demand
        • Calculates consumptions and suggests residual quantities for return transfers of processing, operating and raw materials
        • Enables validation of the materials used 
        • Supports the operator when ordering materials by making order suggestions on the machine touch-screen, or placing automatic orders
        • Records and documents order-specific material consumption and ensures traceability

        The functions in detail

        Line overview

        •  Supplies the operators with detailed information on the products, progress indicators and bills of material for a line
        • The bill of material shows which materials have already been assigned to an order


        Material requirements/returns and goods receipt

        • Material orders from the production line
        • Quantity-related automatic ordering or time-related manual ordering
      • Material Management App (MM App) for Scanner 2/2
        Material Management App (MM App) for Scanner 2/2

        Material labels:

        • Creation of required labels possible
        • Creation and change of material data
        • Triggering of print orders
        • Reduction of work to be performed by the operators on the line(s) or in the goods receiving area


        Material consumption:

        • Allows the operators to assign materials to an order or equipment (depending on the type of consumption)
        • Makes time-related or quantity-related consumption possible
        • Consideration of the consumption sequence


      • Reporting

        Order and production reports based on the premanufactured analysis paths

        Provides reports for the documentation and analysis of orders

        • Based on fixed analysis paths and designs, to illustrate the information in a way that is practically not open to interpretation
        • Web-based, which means they can be called up from any end device within the production and company network via a web browser (also mobile)


        Makes material trackability possible (tracking and tracing)

        • Comprehensive tracking and tracing report by supplying all order and material information
        • Production and material consumption overview
        • Search and reverse search as well as drill-down mechanisms
        • Recall campaigns and measurement of the supplier quality possible

      Providing support in all areas of production


      Benefits to you

      Saving production costs

      You optimise your consumption of resources by requesting all processing and 
      operating materials always at the correct time.


      The Line Management summarises several orders and you benefit from reduced 
      product change-over, conversion and cleaning times.

      Quality assurance

      Line Management helps to reduce your fault potential to a minimum and raise your quality and efficiency to a maximum level.

      Line availability

      You benefit from maximum capacity utilisation of your line through parallel order 
      processing, batch aggregation and order and batch changes on-the-fly.


      Line Management convinces due to its clear operator guidance and a reduced 
      manual workload.

      Product reliability

      The software exactly records the production processes for each batch. You can exactly trace back each individual batch, even within quite complex product lines.
