Coca-Cola Consolidated’s Journey to Reliability

Change is inevitable for every organization. The impact of change is often dependent on how employees perceive the change which is about to happen. Is the change perceived as an opportunity or a threat? This may depend on the amount of change occurring at any given time and whether the scope is minimal or major. Imagine you are responsible for maintenance and engineering at a large manufacturing corporation. Growth has expanded your business’s footprint 150% over the last two years due to acquisitions. Maintenance management systems are being transitioned to a common corporate platform. A standardized business process needs to be defined since equipment records, documentation and work history now reside in multiple systems and the age of your asset base ranges from new to over 25 years old. Learn how Coca-Cola Consolidated addressed some of these challenges that asset managers face every day. Takeaway steps to ensure your culture, process, systems and data are aligned and how you can successfully transform to a reliability centered world class organization.
