LINEVIEW EVOLVED ALONGSIDE INDUSTRY’S BEST, COCA-COLA.

From a lack of data on the line to an intelligent line information system - LineView Software grew in conjunction with Coca-Cola Enterprises.

LineView Solutions Managing Director and co-founder Ian Rowledge started his journey as a production manager at Coca-Cola Enterprises. At the time, he was grappling with how difficult it was to identify key issues with no real data: that it was impossible to know the true causal losses in a system without great data. After putting in long hours one weekend in an attempt to find true causal loss and finding that they were back to square one on Monday, Ian decided that enough was enough.

Ian worked in tandem with John Dunlop, Technical Director of Bytronic, then technical service provider to Coca-Cola Enterprises, to develop a software solution that became much more than a line monitoring tool: LineView line information system was born.

Call out text Coca-Cola Enterprises, like many manufacturing businesses, needed something that would allow them to see the bigger picture and identify real loss on the whole line, not just downtime on individual machines.

LineView’s advanced logic provided an automatic, real-time data gathering tool that accurately categorised data and presented it in exactly the way operators and managers needed it. Coca-Cola Enterprises sites saw remarkable improved performance post the installation of LineView™ and ensured that LineView™ is now installed in all Coca-Cola Enterprises bottling facilities throughout Europe. Ian’s hands-on operational experience meant that he was able to help site teams deliver significant improvement through proper application of this new high-quality information.
