Last week at the Ignition Community Conference (ICC), Vertech received a Firebrand Award for an MES and batching system we implemented across multiple lines at AriZona Beverages' new 621,000 square foot facility in New Jersey. Firebrand Awards are presented annually to six exceptional Ignition projects. This is the second time Vertech has been honored with this prestigious award.
The goal of the winning project was to provide an ISA-88 batch control solution for a greenfield site for can/bottle beverage production. As part of this project, Vertech provided:
SAP integration with MES for production scheduling
SAP integration for tracking real-time batch and finished goods production reporting
OEE and downtime tracking
Control panel design and build
System commissioning services
As a result of this custom solution, AriZona Beverages now has complete visibility of its business and production process, ensuring quality, consistency, and efficiency. This solution ensures that the new facility is capable of fulfilling the market demand for the AriZona iced tea the company is known for.
