Inefficient bottling lines and aging line assets appeared to be creating downtime and waste for a beverage manufacturer. With operation performance unknown, forecasting the ability to meet market demand was ineffective. Building another plant seemed unavoidable!
To meet market demand, solution phases guided the manufacturer to their goal, and a manufacturing operations management (MOM) solution was designed. Upgraded digital data capturing allowed for real-time, accurate production data to support decision clarity. In 3 months, the performance covered the cost of the project delaying the need for new plant construction and successfully exceeding the company’s goals.
