Dorner integrates Holcim cluster „West Germany“ in EBM system

The former west German CEMEX concrete plants which were acquired by Holcim were now integrated in the Holcim EBM system by Dorner. EBM stands for “European Business Model” and represents a complete integration of all Holcim plants in Europe, including central dispatching systems and the connection to the SAP system. In the current project, two new dispatching systems were installed and an interface to the existing control systems was developed. All 65 locations were equipped with offline-capable Dorner Plant PCs. The go-live was scheduled for October 2015 and was carried out on time and without any problems. Dorner staff trained the operators to allow them an easy transfer to the new system.
