Customized graphics within Wonderware MES helped Apex at New Belgium Brewing

“The ability to customize the graphics provided by the Wonderware MES enabled Apex to develop a system that could effectively communicate the line status and production capacities in the New Belgium bottling and packaging lines, while at the same time illustrate the company’s unique company culture with engaging graphics,” Vail said. “Screen data shows what order is being worked on, what is coming next, and how the current rate compares to their standard.” 
“New Belgium gave us a lot of leeway with development of the graphics to make the system engaging and fun to work with. We wanted to make sure the User Interface Experience (UIX) of this system was aligned with New Belgium’s culture, which made it very unique! Operator support is critical in any Continuous Improvement project, so the terminology and workflow needed to match their expectations, and because a real-time version of the display is seen on the public tour, we created unique InTouch graphics that were consistent with all the cool things the visitors had already seen along the way.”
