November 26 marked yet another pivotal moment for CONA Services: Coca-Cola Bottling Company UNITED (CCBCU) deployed CONA’s Planning and Manufacturing Solution for the first time in its Montgomery (AL) Production Center. In other words, this is the first plant where Coca-Cola beverages are not only sold and distributed, but also produced on the CONA solution. This new Planning and Manufacturing solution was just released at the end of September and is now successfully deployed. Good design and build work, as well as solid testing and preparation were only a few components that ensured a first successful go live.
The solution includes capabilities such as: Demand Management (DP), Inventory Deployment (SNP), Production Planning and Scheduling (PP/DS), Production Execution, Product Costing, Plant Maintenance and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for Manufacturing. These processes seamlessly integrate with the CONA Solution in the areas of Procurement, Warehouse, Sales and Distribution, Financial Accounting, Human Resource Management and Reporting.
The new CONA Planning & Manufacturing Solution will be deployed extensively at existing and new bottler locations in the North American territories in 2017.
