30-04-2001: ABB says today it is delivering US$ 15
million in manufacturing execution and supply chain management software
to Visy Industries, linking in real time the Australian pulp and paper
company's headquarters, its production lines and corporate offices
throughout Australia and the United States.
"This is one of the biggest software deliveries ever to a pulp and paper
company, says Dinesh Paliwal, executive vice president and head of ABB's
process industries division. We have created a solution that makes this
key customer's ever-increasing amounts of information available across
their entire enterprise.
The software delivery comes close on the heels of a US$ 50 million order
for ABB with Visy, of Melbourne, Australia. Paliwal says the earlier order,
which included the complete automation, electrification and enterprise
asset management services for Visy's new pulp and paper mill in Tumut,
Australia, allowed him and his team at ABB to realize the great potential for
information sharing across Visy's supply chain.
Visy Industries greenfield mill in Tumut will be the world's most
automated mill", says Ned Colo, deputy CEO & Senior General Manager of
Visy Industries. "Using ABB's technology, both products and software, we
can standardize IT for our entire value chain, starting with customer orders,
planning and manufacturing, all the way through to execution, shipping and
invoicing at each of these locations."
ABB says deliveries of components, systems and software for Visy mark an
important step toward leveraging the full potential of ABBâ€™s Industrial IT
concept. The company says Industrial IT, which links products, services,
solutions and real-time asset control and business information under a
common architecture for fast and easy deployment, helps customers
increase competitiveness in the networked world.
