Ukrainian beer market 2018
- Better than yesterday
- Performance by value
- Positions of Ukrainian brewers
The beer market dynamics in Russia is approaching zero, yet major brewers are divided into those who developed considerably in 2017 and those who considerably reduced their volumes. For instance, company Efes has managed to substantially extend their sales due to restrained pricing policy and activity in the modern trade. Heineken has also demonstrated an excellent performance promoted by significant increase of advertisement budgets launching a non-alcohol sort of the title brand and unusual activity in the economy market segment. Carlsberg and AB InBev have been focusing on margins and lost a market share of their inexpensive brands. Serious dependence on PET package and mass enthusiasm about Zhigulevskoe have negatively impacted the most of big regional brewers, that have been for the first time pressed by the leaders in the key sales channels, especially in Volga and Central regions. In the small business there has been a noticeable slowdown in appearing of new restaurant breweries, yet the number of craft breweries has been growing rapidly. In 2018, the beer market is likely to grow a little, while the share of AB InBev Efes may decrease due to the integration. ...

KHS everywhere a pioneer
With its new KHS everywhere app KHS has taken on a pioneering role among manufacturers of filling and packaging technology for the beverage industry, moving with purpose towards Industry 4.0.
KHS everywhere is KHS' first own smartphone app, with the help of which the status quo of filling and packaging lines and individual machines anywhere in the world can be retrieved at any time of the day.
KHS everywhere communicates with all KHS lines and machines which are equipped with the new ClearLine HMI or Human Machine Interface machine operating system. Those who wish to use KHS everywhere need the following: network technology, which provides signals from lines and machines, a link to the company's in-house network and a KHS everywhere server. The software itself can be downloaded like a classic app for Apple devices with an IOS operating system (version 6 or higher). In order to ensure maximum security the server links up with your smartphone using VPN technology or secure wireless networks and a user name and password.
KHS everywhere visualization is based on the KHS ClearLine HMI design which sports a clear color scheme of gray and white.
KHS everywhere is used as you would a classic app, with the information you require retrieved by touching and scrolling down the screen.
The first section of the app displays all of the filling and packaging lines connected up to the system. Users can then choose which of their lines or machines they would like to look at in more detail. The app then jumps to the specific line with its various machines, the color of which describes their current state. If the machine symbol is outlined in blue, for example, this means that there is a fault and the operator has to intervene. Yellow indicates a temporary warning and may occur if a machine needs materials refilling in the near future, for instance. Green stands for "all's well" and red is "red alert", i.e. on an emergency stop.
The machine state can be viewed in detail for all machines. Process parameters are also accessible, such as pressures and temperatures, as are current counter readings and the container types being run. Users of the KHS everywhere app can also simply monitor individual machines, should they so wish. The program is then entered at machine level.
KHS everywhere has been specifically designed for managers who want to keep a permanent eye on what their plant machinery is doing. However, KHS has also noticed that shift supervisors and operators are also showing an interest in the app. It's thus very important here that companies who have opted for KHS everywhere can activate specific areas for their employees through a user login system. The KHS everywhere app is updatable and is being permanently further developed by KHS in tune with customer demand.
KHS GmbH is one of the leading manufacturers of filling and packaging systems for the beverage, food and non-food industries. Headquartered in Dortmund, Germany, the company has over 4,500 employees worldwide.
