Schneider Electric updates Wonderware Recipe Manager Software

March 18, 2015 — Schneider Electric released an updated version of Wonderware Recipe Manager Plus software. Designed specifically for food and beverage and any other batch manufacturer, the software will speed up and optimize how new recipes and recipe variations are adopted and how new products are brought to market.

Wonderware Recipe Manager Plus provides easy-to-use recipe formula management in a secure, web-based client/server environment. Flexible integration and connectivity enables formula parameter download to any automation system, making it easier to manage more product variations and streamline the process of introducing new products. It is control and automation system independent so it can be used on any automated production and packaging equipment, and it integrates seamlessly with existing automation systems, helping to unify and standardize the user experience and recipe data management.

The software is accessible through a web-based, secure, platform-neutral user interface on any computer, HMI workstation, operator panel or mobile device with an HTML5 compatible browser. It provides formula management, procedure management and execution functionality, as well as a rich user interface for all related recipe management, execution and system administration tasks, which improves the time to value for the investment. Role-based security, automatic item versioning, approvals, automatic change and execution history records and report views provide deep governance to ensure and document consistent product quality.

“Because it is designed as a client/server web application with a central data repository for standardizing recipe management operations across the business, Wonderware Recipe Manager Plus software simplifies the process of taking new products to market,” said Dirk Kozian, batch software product manager, Schneider Electric. “We believe adopting this unique approach to recipe management reduces engineering and implementation costs by up to 40 percent compared to bespoke recipe management solutions. And when rolled out as a company standard, we believe it can reduce new product time to market anywhere from 20 to 40 percent, depending on the industry.”
