Developing a structure for fine wine
Pernod Ricard Winemakers, Marlborough Winery, New Zealand
Pernod Ricard Winemakers' winemaking facility in Marlborough had independent machines with separate interfaces and control systems. The winemaking process was controlled by a series of local operator panels.
The CR Solution
We set about linking and monitoring every process, factoring in the long production lifecycle required to make wine.
A SCADA application was built to provide a 'one-seat' wine management and peripheral plant performance monitoring system.
During the winemaking process, Pernod Ricard Winemakers' have access to the history of every batch, from every vintage, through every process. The immediate benefit was the removal of a number of onerous tasks and simplification for increased agility.
Overall, we were able to give the client greater intelligence of data, the ability to diagnose faults, and troubleshoot problems.
