Managed Supply Planning. Rapid ROI. See the evidence.
Achieving production stability was a prime driver for DDMRP II adoption at a major soft drinks manufacturer.
A.G. Barr p.l.c. is a FTSE 250 UK based, branded consumer goods business focused on growth. The company was established over 140 years ago in Scotland.
A soft drinks business at its core, A.G. Barr offers a diverse and differentiated portfolio of great tasting brands such as the iconic IRN-BRU, market-leading RUBICON exotic fruit juice drinks, and the Scottish spring water STRATHMORE.
The goal was to achieve service levels above 99%.
Very high service levels to supermarket chains are critical in the soft drinks industry. Over-and under-stocking due to constant production re-prioritisation was a severe problem in not getting to over 99% service at A.G. Barr.
