Optimizing filling lines in the FMCG industry

In the fast-moving consumer goods industry (FMCG), it is extremely important to get the maximum performance from your filling lines. With fast-changing requirements on packaging, labelling & capacity, operating your existing filling lines requires simulation tools that can predict future performance & solve existing bottlenecks.

Typical filling questions that simulation can answer are:

☑️ What is the best setup for a new filling line?

☑️ How can we increase our existing filling line capacity?

☑️ What are the right buffer sizes to maximize overall line throughput?

☑️ At what rate should I run my machines to avoid a complete line stop?

☑️ What is our bottleneck, or do we have multiple?


Henkel turned to simulation & found a partner in Systems Navigator. They are now able to run different scenarios and design their filling lines right before implementing them. This way they get maximum value out of their capital investments in packaging and are also able to demonstrate the impact of change on their existing lines, ensuring stakeholder buy in and rapid acceptance of new projects.
