CEFICIS in Cementos Portland Valderrivas. Year 2007
The CEFIcis (Corporate Information Service) system has been put into service with great success in four Spanish plants owned by Cementos Pórtland Valderrivas in Morata de Tajuña (Madrid), Alcalá de Guadaira (Sevilla), Olazagutía (Navarra) and Venta de Baños (Palencia). This Corporate Information System is based on the Proficy suite of production-specific software by GEFanuc.

The characteristics of the system include:
  • Automatic production of reports, ready for validation by the person responsible, of:
    • Production
    • Quality
    • Environment
    • Distribution of power consumption
    • Shipping
  • Real-time integration of necessary data from plants using different control systems (Polcid – Rockwell, Siemens, ABB) and other systems, with the company SAP management system.
  • Permits real-time remote access viewing of plants via website by means of charts, similar to those existing in control rooms, on a single website independent of the control system of each plant.
  • Permits production of reports to the requirements of any authorised user, needing only basic skills in computer operation. These can be produced on an Excel spreadsheet or published on a website for access by those people designated by the authorized user.
  • Permits keeping of records for an unlimited period and without loss of accuracy for later study and application in optimizing processes.

 The benefits that this new system provides to the client include, among others:
  • Automation of the flow of information from the plants to SAP which also provides:
    • Quick access to data.
    • Elimination of errors arising from manual entry of data.
    • Reduction of costs by eliminating the need for personnel to enter the data manually.
  • CEFIcis can provide a dedicated site that can be accessed in real-time to record and report all information available in the plants, independent of the technological platform of these.
  • Mobile access to CEFIcis via the Web. Company management has access to all information even when travelling.
  • All data is recorded for later use.

In later phases the system will be installed in UNILAND plants which have been acquired by CPV. These plants are located in Spain, Tunis, Argentina and Uruguay. Furthermore, the system will be installed in the three plants in the USA owned by CPV Group.
