Infor says that Molson Coors is the first company to deploy SCM Advanced Planner 5.0, Infor's supply chain planning and optimization solution. The brewer's supply chain incorporates more than 750 product lines across six breweries and 40 distribution centers. Infor says the solution enables Molson Coors to manage inventory and production for all sites while also factoring in capacity constraints of production, warehousing and distribution.
"The new version of Advanced Planner allows us to incorporate more detail into the planning process, increasing from 7 million to 38 million the number of variables that we factor in," says Dan Brown, director of supply chain planning for imports and systems for Molson Coors. "The accuracy from the additional detail enables us to reduce inventories while maintaining our high customer service levels."
Other solutions force users to "break the model up into silos which compromise the quality of the total supply chain plan," says Andrew Kinder, Infor's director of product marketing. "Infor SCM Advanced Planner 5.0 uniquely combines flexibility and adaptability with scalability, which makes it the leading choice for companies with complex, global supply chains to manage."
