At PACK EXPO 2012, OMAC Packaging Workgroup featured a packaging line simulation developed by Nestlé to demonstrate that different brands of controllers can communicate on the same network and protocol, using international standards such as PackML and coordinating equipment without the need for a separate line PLC.
 
More initiatives are forthcoming, beginning with issues confronting Nestlé worldwide and leading to solutions that will be developed by OPW committees.  The new initiatives are human-machine interface (HMI) standardization, a standardized packaging user requirements specification, and on-screen machine diagnostics.  These all represent topics that have defied standardization in the past, and which will all contribute to simplified, more efficient packaging operations.
