Lotte's Shin visits Lotte Chilsung Beverage smart factory
Shin stressed the importance of digitization, especially in the post-coronavirus era, during his visit.
“As an impact of Covid-19, digital transformation is projected to be much more accelerated and its scope further expanded,” Shin said during the visit. “As the key system has been constructed at the Anseong smart factory, it will become a symbolic case that timely responds to the post coronavirus [age].”
Established in 2000, Lotte’s factory in Anseong is the largest of the company’s six factories in Korea. Chilsung Cider and other drinks are manufactured at the 40,000 pyeong (1.42 million square feet) factory.
Lotte started digitizing the factory since 2018.
Digitization of the factory is intended to improve the productivity and the quality of beverages, according to Lotte. The company plans to utilize data and information technology to better monitor and control the production and management of facilities.
Currently, data on packaging, loading and output are sent to the central server at the factory, enabling real-time monitoring.
