The goal of Mengniu’s intelligent manufacturing started with a push to achieve intelligent management of R&D projects, formulas, processes and packaging.
Then, it focused on PLM system issue inspection tasks, LIMS, production tasks and MES. Next, it looked at managing energy consumption, equipment and labor through MES. At the same time, all these systems had to connect with the lowest level of ERP system. Finally, Mengniu worked on the goal of fully digitalizing the manufacturing process and intelligence through digital twinning.
With Gartner’s help, Mengniu was able to test and verify some of these innovative concepts, quickly analyze industry trends and set the direction of its IT development. Gartner Magic Quadrants provided visibility into suitable industry solutions and service suppliers.
Mengniu worked one-on-one with Gartner experts to think through each scenario, and adjust and implement suggestions based on the company’s specific needs. Mengniu also obtained unparalleled industry and technology-related guidance at conferences, such as Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo™.
