Coors Brewing Shutdown
|Industry Type:||Food & Beverage|
A current employee with access to the bottling control system, inadvertently changed a timer for a maintenance device on a filler. Instead of squirting grease into the bearing every 20 minutes, it was set to once every 8 hours. Consequently, the bearings froze. The line that fills the bottles at 1,200 per minute stopped.
Operations were shut-down resulting in $100,000 loss.
|Action Description:||Rockwell Software helped Coors put security into their manufacturing system that was designed primarily for efficiency and reliability.|
