Infor Global Solutions , a provider of enterprise software solutions to select manufacturing and distribution vertical markets has announced that InBev has licensed the Infor Advanced Scheduling solution to improve its global supply chain efficiency.
InBev is the world's biggest brewer by volume, and owns numerous brands including Stella Artois, Brahma, and Beck’s. InBev owns breweries in 30 countries across the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific.
InBev selected the Infor Advanced Scheduling solution to improve its production scheduling. Synchronising the flows from brewing to packaging has become increasingly difficult for InBev, and the company will use the Infor solution to manage the increased complexity and finite capacity constraints at various stages of the production.
The InBev supply chain has grown considerably in the last years, thanks to an expanding business. The company needed a solution able to serve the unique process and functional requirements of the beverage industry, including tank scheduling capabilities, finite capacity constraints, limited shelf life, and large production volumes.
Meanwhile, the Infor Supply Chain Management Group Asia Pacific User Meeting will be held at Dockside Darling Harbour in Sydney, from Nov 15-16, 2005.
Attendees at this year’s meeting will have the opportunity to learn more about a broad range of supply chain solutions and their current and future capabilities, as well as get an insight into how to apply the system and achieve the most from the solution.
