An industry-specific software solution from CSB-System International is helping to deliver high levels of automation and efficiency to ensure optimal process flow at the meat processing factory of Edeka Südwest Fleisch GmbH in Rheinstetten, Germany. This has enabled production volumes of up to 650 tons of high-quality meat and sausages per day to be achieved for 1,250 Edeka stores.

The integrated turnkey solution from CSB controls the entire value-added chain in the factory. Goods receiving, cutting, production planning and control, packaging and labelling of meat and sausages for self-service, stock placement and removal, picking, loading of trolleys and dispatch, are all controlled by software. Two control stations permanently monitor about 800 individual processes online, allowing fast corrective action when required.

Edeka Südwest Fleisch’s automated processes commence from initial receipt of its pork halves and beef quarters, through weighing and grading, to cutting, packing and the production of meat for self-service and high-quality sausage products. The software also controls storage, picking and dispatch.

At two CSB control stations, all strings of this highly automated meat factory are joined. As a result, the system provides up-to-date information about the overall situation, the performance, and the technical status of the production and logistics areas.
