Large Soft Drink Manufacturer Avoids Production Downtime When PLC Code is Lost

At this manufacturing plant, if a change was unauthorized or the engineer simply forgot to save the change to the main back-up file, version control issues would arise. MDT Food and Beverage Case StudyIf just one production line goes down because a PLC has fallen over due to poor software version control, the plant is faced with downtime costs of around $1,800 per minute.

Read the case study to learn how they applied the MDT AutoSave Change Management System and immediately retrieved Data after a PLC's code was lost.

Nestle Purina Increases Productivity and Reduces Downtime and Safety Risks

Before we installed AutoSave [Automation Change Management Software], we really had no way to manage all the different program versions created by our programmers,” explains Alan Hiler, Controls Engineer, Nestlé Purina Mechanicsburg Plant.MDT Nestle Case Study In facilities where multiple people are making changes from multiple computers, the documentation of changes is often lost, archives of older copies are non-existent and the wrong programs may be running on the devices.

Read the case study and learn how Nestle Purina gained plant-wide control of the automation environment.
