Abstract
Batch production processes used in malting plants, breweries and other companies in the food industry require a special control system with wide ranging and integrated functions including planning, batch control, maintenance, quality assurance, online monitoring and reporting. It is also necessary to integrate and connect these functions to the financial, sales, and controlling system used in management and administration. All the process, transport, machine, maintenance and laboratory data are recorded in a modern SQL?data base which makes it easily possible to evaluate this integration. This paper shows a concept for such an integrated system with examples picked out from a German malting plant.
Keywords: control system, malting, brewing, integrated data processing

Es tambien necesario integrar y conectar estas funciones al sistema financiero, de ventas y de control utilizado en gerencia y administracion. Toda la informacion de los procesos, transporte, maquinas, mantenimiento y laboratorio esta grabada en la moderna base de datos SQL lo que hace facilmente posible el evaular su intemacion.
