Digital Transformation

Module Type Packages (MTP): Streamlining the Brewing Process

MTP represents a game-changing approach to standardization and digitalization in brewery construction. Traditionally, various levels of documentation were handed over to customers independently, leading to inefficiencies and information scattered across documents. MTP changes this landscape by combining all relevant data for each process step, including process, mechanics, electrics, automation, and maintenance. By integrating all the data, MTP-capable modules (plant components) speak the same language, streamlining integration efforts on the construction site. The result is a brewery designed with MTP-capable modules, allowing for effortless “plug and produce” capabilities and eliminating unplanned challenges during construction.

With MTP, engineering and commissioning benefit from a high degree of standardization, reducing manual interventions and potential errors. It also provides customers with the flexibility to change or add individual process modules at any time, ensuring adaptability for future needs.

Digital Twin: Breathing Life into Data

Taking digitalization one step further, Ziemann introduces the concept of a “Digital Twin.” This cloud-based data platform gives customers access to all MTP data and offers visualization, simulation, and analysis tools. A virtual tour of the future brewery becomes possible during the early planning stages, providing insights into the process and mechanics. After commissioning, real-time data from sensors feeds into the cloud, enabling complex “what-if” scenarios and proactive maintenance. The “Digital Twin” empowers customers with data-driven decision-making and operational optimization.

Advantages of MTP and Digital Twin:

  1. Shorter implementation period with “plug and produce” capabilities.
  2. Visualization of the future brewery during the planning stage.
  3. Data-driven process simulations and identification of savings potential.
  4. More efficient and proactive maintenance.
  5. Higher availability and reduced operating costs due to fewer breakdowns.
  6. Flexibility for modular additions at any time.

Secure Data Exchange Worldwide

Ziemann Holvrieka ensures secure data exchange using Weihenstephaner standards for brewery projects, allowing standardized transmission of machine and process data to superordinate IT systems. Our turnkey approach with MTP and the Digital Twin is available worldwide, and we have successfully implemented this innovative concept in major projects.

Electrical System Design with EPLAN
Ziemann Holvrieka utilises EPLAN, the world’s leading application for electrical system design, to create the electrical system’s blueprint. A patented database connection ensures freedom from errors and redundancy. Compliance with industry standards, such as DINEN60204, guarantees the highest quality.

Complete As-Built Documentation

We provide the customer with a comprehensive electrical as-built documentation, ensuring transparency and enabling smooth maintenance and future upgrades.

Functional Design

Customer-Specific Software Development
ZH takes a customer-centric approach to software development, creating custom software based on a Functional Design Specification (FDS). The FDS is submitted to the customer for approval at an early project stage, fostering collaboration and alignment.

Cloud-Based Approval Process
To streamline the approval process, the FDS is delivered as an MTP file, enabling cloud-based checking and release by the customer.

Software Development

Adherence to ANSI/ISA-88 Standard
ZH has been following the ANSI/ISA-88 standard (IEC61512) for batch control for decades, ensuring a reliable and consistent approach to software development.

Preferred Automation Systems
ZH’s preferred automation systems are SISTAR BRAUMAT and PCS7 from Siemens. The software is thoroughly tested through a documented software FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) in collaboration with the customer.

Digital Twin

A Digital Twin for Future Plant
ZH offers customers a digital twin of their future brewery plant after the design freeze. The digital twin is continuously enriched with additional data until the plant’s handover. The twin includes a 3D mechanical model and an automation twin (MTP file) for process simulation.

Cloud-Based Access for Engineering Data

Customers are provided with cloud-based access to engineering data, facilitating life cycle management. An API interface allows customers to link specific data to the platform.

One of the leading process systems and equipment integrator

We create a 3D layout for each new turnkey project. This makes it clear to everyone involved in the process what the system looks like. You can take a virtual walk through the production facility before construction and see all the details in detail.

As an experienced turnkey provider, we also rely on clear interface management. This clearly describes for everyone where the interfaces are and what the transfer looks like at the interface. This ensures clarity about the place and how of execution.

However, interface management not only affects utilities and units, but also the construction of the building itself.

When designing our systems, we take location factors such as wind loads, earthquake hazards, etc. into account. These factors are incorporated into clear specifications for the construction companies involved. The company knows right from the start how foundations are to be laid, where wall penetrations or drainage systems are to be provided.
