Dream Report in Baltic Mineral Water Company – Data Driven Production

TPA (Lithuania) makes fast digitalization projects

TPA is system integration company located in Lithuania and a long-time Klinkmann Partner company. Over 20 year experience has enabled the company to have a deep knowledge of automated systems, in all project phases, from design to implementation and customer support.

TPA’s specialities include:

  • Electrical engineering and automation system design
  • Software design and development (PLC, HMI/SCADA, & Data Analytics)

TPA’s team can design unique automation solutions for specific client needs. Dream Report platform is TPA’s chosen solution for industrial information management, reports and dashboards. Dream Report enables TPA to easily address customer´s requirements for the varying customer needs.

Traceability for Clean in Place (CIP) Operations

TPA completed their Dream Report project with one of the largest still and sparkling mineral water manufacturers in the Baltic states – “Baltic Mineral Water Company”. This company also produces various soft drinks, functional drinks as well as specialized products for children and sports activities. The client owns a well-known brand called “Tiche” and the production requires high-quality standards for traceability and composition incl. Clean in Place (CIP) operations.

Data Driven Production opens new business models

TPA and Baltic Mineral Water wanted to focus more on the technological processes for operational and business developments without wasting time on learning how to use new and complex tools or training their personnel on new reporting solutions. Reports and dashboards should be a simple addition to the existing automation solutions, and not the main task. Dream Report offers excellent connectivity to AVEVA Wonderware, Siemens, Rockwell Automation and Schneider Electric systems.

The customer goal was to have a plant Clean in Place (CIP) reporting system which would generate various reports for:

  • All CIP’s done in the last 24 hours
  • Detailed CIP reports with all the program sequences that would show what happened during the cleaning procedure of each CIP together with the trend of most important plant KPIs and parameters
  • All the events that occurred while running the CIP
  • Generate separate Comma Separated Variable (CSV) files for post analysis

Dream Report offers a browser-based portal for accessing reports and dashboard data.  TPA encapsulated the Dream Report web report functionality via a web browser element. Users can easily access reports through the existing HMI displays, without needing to switch applications.  The HMI delivers all the functionality of generating PDF or CSV files from desired CIP lines or procedures.  Filtering by time or by unique CIP ID is easily selected through the operator interface.

Dream Report saves engineering and operator time

With a Dream Reports overview training made by Klinkmann, TPA was able to become familiar with Dream Report platform and develop the application. As application development progressed, engineers were able to build on their knowledge and were very pleased with the extremely intuitive design of this software, and their ability to configure the solution for their customer. Raised technical questions regarding Dream Report were immediately resolved by reaching out to the Klinkmann Technical Center support team.

One of the main advantages of Dream Report is its ability to easy integrate and access AVEVA SCADA and other platforms. AVEVA SCADA system logs all important data to its history files and Dream Report is able to access the data and deliver advanced reporting functionality with a great deal of flexibility. The client found this solution to be extremely useful and was happy to have a tool to quickly and easily visualize and analyze data from their critical Clean in Place process variables.

Summary – Information Management Platform allows digital production

Information management by Dream Report is an additional skill set to TPA’s core competency of process automation. TPA says: “It’s very important to have a platform like Dream Report that can compete in the low-price range on the global market. Dream Report stands out in the market with its very powerful capabilities and competitive cost structure.” Dream Report offers scalable pricing based on application size.
