MES SUCCESS STORY / CONSUMER PACKAGED GOODS
A global CPG leader was approaching end-of-life for a mature custom plant-floor manufacturing system. A new shop floor system had to be implemented across their global manufacturing network that provided standardization across their operations to meet global production needs. To do this, a new approach to project management had to be adopted, and a platform that allowed for reusable, regionally configurable templates needed to be leveraged.
Our Wonderware Expert Services team worked with the customer to help design a centralized governance structure and standards approach that created a plant floor manufacturing system template that could be rolled out quickly and regionalized across their enterprise. The result was a centrally supported manufacturing execution system (MES) that met local requirements while providing standardized operations and data visibility to key corporate stakeholders.
