No resting on their laurels for Privatmolkerei Bechtel

Private Bechtel Dairy have concentrated much of their production in the Schwarzenfeld plant in recent years. As a result of the consolidation, the privately owned enterprise has dramatically streamlined its processes –  based on a highly developed solution by CSB-System AG. molkerei-industrie was on site to have a look.

"We have developed our ERP system to such an extent that it covers all processes within the company. This process involves a strategy that integrates 100% –   from A to Z –   from asset management to time management and from lab integration to maintenance, thus encompassing so much more that merely production", explains René Guhl, managing partner of Naabtaler Milchwerke. With this step, the company has taken a deliberate stand against island solutions, no matter how ingenious they may seem to appear. Martin Miller, Business Unit Head of Quality and Process Management in Schwarzenfeld adds: "We don't want redundant master data or any interfaces, as this enables us to make much better use of our resources and affords us more flexibility, which ultimately means that we can work much more efficiently.  And incidentally, when Guhl and Miller talk about their CSB solution they no longer use the term IT, they call it an instrument for corporate management.

Numbers freaks

“We are really crazy about numbers,” admits Guhl. “All management decisions, whether operative or strategic, are based on live actual data. We don’t have the time to ask where data comes from
and how it was prepared, which is why we have developed our ERP system with CSB-System to provide a decision-making basis whenever we need it. We no longer have piles of paper documents and Excel spreadsheets, from which we used to have to laboriously extract the information we needed.” Processes are only ever ideal for Bechtel if they can be done without paper. Over time, the extent to which this has been achieved has gone so far that the company is now even able to conduct an IFS audit without the use of any paper; a feat which Bechtel successfully demonstrated earlier this year at the end of April when the dairy producer was recertified with the highest standard. Auditing, accompanied by the CSB-System, takes place at Bechtel internally on a continuous basis – such as a consumer panel- and competitor product-based sensor benchmark. The latter however is still currently awaiting fully automated integration in the ERP system.
