HAUNI Maschinenbau AG and Siemens Automation and Drives plan to develop manufacturing execution systems for the tobacco processing industry in a joint venture. They will also market these solutions worldwide.
Hauni will further develop its cigarette production management system on the basis of Simatic IT from Siemens, and continuously expand its performance range in this area as certified partner. The Simatic IT manufacturing execution systems software can be readily combined with customised modules or other modules developed for the tobacco industry. This allows optimisation of individual tobacco production processes and seamless integration of the information flow between the production plant and the enterprise resource planning level from the production machinery right up to the central order and product management system, electronic document storage, or the analysis and reporting system.
