Where are you on your journey to Factory of Excellence?

As a provider of machines, services and digital solutions, Hauni has a deep understanding of the entire value chain from GLT to the packaging of finished end products. “With 75 years of experience in the global tobacco industry, we are well equipped to work with each individual customer. We help them to create a long-term roadmap that guides them quickly and efficiently to their specific goal,” says Jürgen Heller.

The potentials of Factory of Excellence

Significance of E2E solutions

Creating added value

E2E, which stands for endto-end, describes nothing other than the end of all process silos - and not just horizontally, i.e. along the areas within each silo. “Particularly vertically, i.e. concerning and connecting all digital and physical processes within a product cycle, E2E can provide a quantum leap in transparency and efficiency,” says Rami Jokela, Chief Sales Officer (CSO) of the Körber Group.

Tobacco Value Chain

The decisive factor in implementation is an integrated solution approach that enables the smooth compatibility and networking of all areas involved. As a strategic partner with comprehensive process expertise, Körber offers customized E2E models "from a single source" - from physical manufacturing and operating systems to cloud and AI-based monitoring models.

Partner and faciliator: Hauni navigates your path to the Factory of Excellence

The best path differs from company to company

Solid planning is the first major step and determines the success of every subsequent activity in the medium term. The roadmap for developing a Factory of excellence will have implications for all areas of production. The individual steps must be carefully selected to ensure that the implementation combines long-term goals with quickly measurable improvements and does not hinder routine processes in the production facility.

The customer is the starting point: developing a roadmap

Finding the way together
 

Hauni takes a proven approach when developing its customer roadmaps. This starts with a sound analysis of the current situation, from which an individual plan for achieving the goal gradually emerges.

"As-is" situation
 

An in-depth analysis documents the organization, competencies, IT/OT and digital maturity level as well as production processes and technologies used.

Vision
 

Vision and strategic initiatives set the direction for expanding or rebuilding what already exists with the goal of decisively improving the value stream.

Goals
 

To define measurable goals, strategic initiatives are linked to management KPIs and translated into concrete measures.

Scenarios
 

User stories describe the specifically desired form of interactions between people, machines and processes with a focus on the end user.

Solutions
 

After defining the future working practice models based on the user stories, we select the appropriate solutions for realizing the respective goals.

Roadmap
 

The end result is a concrete schedule with firmly defined milestones. This provides the basis for the implementation phase, which can then begin in the individual project areas.

Sample steps towards Factory of Excellence

Standardization

Standardization

of processes and machine settings allows companies to establish best practices, avoid errors and reduce dependency on the human factor

Close

Modernization

Modernization

of equipment offers further scope for standardization and obsolescence prevention. Data interfaces – the foundation of Industry 4.0 – allow companies to exploit all the advantages of digitization.

Close

Reporting & analysis

Reporting & analysis

continuously ensure complete knowledge of every process, line and plant based on total performance transparency. This motivates and supports teams when setting goals.

Close

Maintenance optimization

Maintenance optimization

based on individual requirements increases machine performance and reduces costs by ensuring the ideal configuration of individual maintenance modules in conjunction with CMMS software.

Close

Processes

Processes

are optimized via the demanddriven introduction of further MOM modules for production (MES), quality (QMS) and warehouse management (WMS). This improves the overall performance of the production facility.

Close

Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence

enables operators to take the next leap forward from reaction to prevention. It ensures that machines run optimally on a permanent basis and adapt automatically to new conditions.

Always in focus: Data Security

A matter of trust

Shared data are the fuel of the digital revolution. Sharing data across corporate boundaries requires a trusting partnership. Hauni invests in certification processes to build its partners’ trust. During the implementation of all its IT security measures, Hauni follows the guidelines laid out by the international standard ISO 27001 for the protection of corporate data.
