Sweet Recipes at Chocolat Bernrain and Salzburg Schokolade with OS-PDM

The Swiss and Austrian chocolate manufacturers Bernrain and Salzburg use special calculation options in the recipe management software OS-PDM to automatically calculate cocoa content, milk solids, milk fat and other parameters.

Zurich, Switzerland, July 18, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Chocolat Bernrain AG based in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland and the Austrian Salzburg Schokolade GmbH, producer of the famous Mozartkugeln, manufacture chocolate products that are exported all over the world.

Both companies have decided in favour of the formulation and specification software OS-PDM of Object Solutions Software AG to simplify the development process and automate their specification processes. OS-PDM supports the firms to optimize recipes current and automatically generates ready-made food specifications with lists of ingredients including Guideline Daily Amounts (GDA) in real time. The confectionery manufacturers use special calculation options designed for the chocolate industry with automated calculations of cocoa content, milk solids, milk fat and other parameters.

Besides the organization of complex bio-and tariff settlements in relation to individual recipe components (including fair trade, Knospe) consistent specification processes must be met to guarantee long-term traceability.

Both companies have multiple locations and access to a central database. Thus, they achieve a better collaboration and accelerate their development efforts in different plants.
