British American Tobacco (BAT) is a global tobacco company with more than 200 brands sold in over 200 markets. BAT operates in 44 factories in 41 countries and employs more than 57,000 people worldwide. The Monterrey, Mexico plant for BAT is one of the most modern manufacturing facilities in all of Latin America with over 1,000+ SKUs, representing a high level of volume and complexity in a highly regulated market.
BAT Mexico was managing four different Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) that lacked functionality to cope with new requirements of a complex operation.
BAT Mexico chose a flexible platform-based solution for manufacturing operations management from Dassault Systèmes.
