A completely integrated software ERP solution in a modern glass processing plant is essential to achieve complete automation. Only by closing the gaps between machinery and software and by eliminating island solutions an efficient flow can be achieved. Complete automation is making factories smarter and requires constant innovation, which is the process of making something better by use of new original ideas, mainly in software technology. Through that new form of automation software control systems are applied to reduce labor, increase raw material usage and improve quality by repeatable work methods. This process is changing the landscape of manufacturing. Modern and fully integrated software solutions furthermore coordinate the activity of the islands of automation created by the many talented machinery and system vendors. By deeply integrating and inter-connecting machinery and software in a factory a complete view of materials, status of all processes can be available to anyone, at any time.
