Case Studies / 4 Weeks To Go-Live

This factory was 4 weeks from go-live with an ERP project when issues started to be raised to senior management. Over budget already, testing couldn’t be completed.

Strategically important, head office was looking for this to happen – but things weren’t ready? How do we get out of this, and bring this project to a successful conclusion?


“We had no capacity or resource on site to project manage the
implementation of a new IT system. The project lost pace,
direction and was at risk of becoming a white elephant.

We then engaged with LI Europe who had the ability to apply
 logic and problem solving to work through the issues, which no
one else had done.

We realised that what we were doing was actually working when,
after a few bumps, the system worked, and the staff were
engaged and happy.

Life with a working IT system, gives us greater control and real-
time information. The next step is to further understand the
system to maximise its benefit.”

Iceland Manufacturing

Firstly, Reckitt Benckiser and LI pulled together to improve efficiency levels and there was a focus on both external and internal resources. Before LI arrived efficiency was not good. Secondly, there was good methodology and training using operators to support its implementation. Thirdly, there was daily and hourly focusing on performance. Since LI left, improvements have been sustained.

Before LI came I was facing a £2million factory extension project as my only solution for growth… I would recommend LI Europe to any food manufacturing business which wants to achieve rapid and sustainable productivity improvement.
