Great Lakes Brewing Company Quenches Increased Demand With Manufacturing Analytics Solution From Rockwell Automation

Brewery deployed the FactoryTalk Analytics for Devices appliance from Rockwell Automation to bring the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) and analytics to its factory floor.

 

PRESS  RELEASE Great Lakes Brewing Company Craft beer is booming business in the United States, and even seasoned breweries are finding themselves looking for creative ways to keep u


p with thirsty consumers. Cleveland-based Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC), an independent craft brewery founded in 1988, recently tapped into new manufacturing analytics technology that helps scale production without sacrificing product quality.

GLBC deployed the FactoryTalk Analytics for Devices appliance from Rockwell Automation to bring the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) and analytics to its factory floor. The technology gives GLBC greater insight into the health of its beer-brewing machinery to help increase efficiency, improve quality and minimise downtime.

“From day one, Great Lakes Brewing Company has been committed to good beer, which means we are relentlessly focused on quality – from the ingredients we use to our production process and beyond,” said John Blystone, electrical and control supervisor, Great Lakes Brewing Company. “Adding advanced analytics and hardware diagnostics to our factory floor allows us to continue fulfilling our quality commitment by giving us more meaningful insight into our production equipment.”

The solution provides health and diagnostic analytics from devices on the brewery’s plant floor. Inside the Rockwell Automation appliance there is a bot called “Shelby” that can interact with production staff using natural language processing. This technology is based on the Microsoft Bot Framework and trained with Microsoft Cognitive Services to help enable brewery staff to easily identify and address equipment challenges in real time.

“Shelby has been instrumental in our transition to a more connected plant-floor environment, allowing us to tap into a wealth of existing data to solve problems very quickly,” Blystone said.

The solution deployed by GLBC is one component of a joint technology collaboration between Rockwell Automation and Microsoft designed to help companies make the most of digital transformation.

“Great Lakes Brewing Company’s solution is part of a broader trend of digital transformation that is helping support the continued growth of industry in the U.S.,” said Frank Kulaszewicz, senior vice president, Architecture and Software, Rockwell Automation. “By arming engineers with actionable data and insights, this technology is enhancing the great work they’re already doing and empowering them to create even better products.”

“Our work with Rockwell Automation has enabled manufacturing companies to transform their business using data and deep analytics to improve efficiency and productivity,” said Sam George, director, Azure IoT at Microsoft Corp. “It’s great to see the differentiated solutions our long-standing alliance is providing for industrial and manufacturing customers.”

GBPUSD Pound Jumps to 1.25, Markets Eye Autumn

GBPUSD Price Trade opened Increased Thursday August 3

British Pound  | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

CURRENCY TRADERS 

GBP/USD 4 Hours Chart

GBPUSD Price Trade opened increased 0.0028 or 0.21% to 1.3227 on Thursday August 3 from 1.3199 in the previous trading session. Historically, the British Pound reached an all time high of 2.86 in December of 1957 and a record low of 1.05 in February of 1985.

GBP/USD remains on the upside for the moment. Current rally could target 1.3444 key resistance. But still, price actions from 1.1946 are viewed as a corrective pattern. Hence, we’ll look for topping signal again around 1.3444. On the downside, below 1.3096 minor support will turn bias neutral first. Further break of 1.2932 support will indicate reversal and will turn bias to the downside to target 1.2588 key support next.



GBPUSD Price Trade opened

In the bigger picture, overall, price actions from 1.1946 medium term low are seen as a corrective pattern that is still in progress. While further upside is expected, larger outlook remains bearish as long as 1.3444 key resistance holds. Down trend from 1.7190 (2014 high) is expected to resume later after the correction completes. And break of 1.2588 will indicate that such down trend is resuming.

GBPUSD Pound Jumps to 1.25, Markets Eye Autumn

GBPUSD Increased Early Trade for British Pound to 1.2927 on Thursday July 6

British Pound | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

FOREX INVESTORS GBPUSD Increased Early Trade   The GBPUSD increased 0.0011 or 0.09% to 1.2927 on Thursday July 6 from 1.2916 in the previous trading session. Historically, the British Pound reached an all time high of 2.86 in December of 1957 and a record low of 1.05 in February of 1985.

Although the British pound has remained under near term downward pressure and initial downside risk remains for the corrective fall from 1.3030 (last week’s high) to bring retracement of recent upmove to 1.2880-85 (38.2% Fibonacci retracement of 1.2640-1.3030), reckon downside would be limited to 1.2865-70 and bring another upmove later, above 1.2960 would signal low is formed, bring rebound to 1.3000 but break of said resistance at 1.3030 is needed to signal recent upmove has resumed and extend further gain towards recent high 1.3048.

In view of this, we are looking to buy cable again on further corrective fall as previous resistance at 1.2861 should turn into support and contain downside, bring another rise. Below 1.2830-35 (50% Fibonacci retracement of 1.2640-1.3030) would abort and signal top is formed, bring further fall towards support at 1.2794.

USDCAD Trump Shock Pushes Canadian Dollar Down

USDCAD increased at close Canadian Dollar to 1.3006 on Monday July 3

Canadian Dollar  | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast | News

BUZ INVESTORS USDCAD increased at close   The USDCAD increased 0.0044 or 0.34% to 1.3006 on Monday July 3 from 1.2962 in the previous trading session. Historically, the Canadian Dollar reached an all time high of 1.61 in January of 2002 and a record low of 0.92 in November of 2007.

As the greenback has recovered after falling to 1.2946 on Friday, suggesting minor consolidation would be seen and corrective bounce to 1.3045-50 and possibly 1.3080 is likely, however, reckon 1.3115-20 would limit upside and bring another decline later, below said support would extend the fall from 1.3794 top (wave c of larger degree wave b top) to 1.2920, however, near term oversold condition should limit downside to 1.2900 and reckon 1.2870 would hold from here, risk from there has increased for a rebound later.

In view of this, would not chase this fall here and would be prudent to sell the pair again on recovery as 1.3115-20 should limit upside. Above 1.3160-70 would defer and suggest low is formed, bring a stronger rebound to 1.3215-20 and possibly towards 1.3260-65 but only break there would abort and signal a temporary low is formed instead, then test of resistance at 1.3308 would follow.
