Advanced cost control through finished goods costs benchmarking at global brewer AB InBev

Managing costs in today’s volatile world has become ever more challenging for manufacturing companies. AB InBev, the world largest beer brewer, has taken control of their costs of finished goods through the development of a global cost model in Anaplan that supports benchmarking between their many production sites around the world. This allows AB InBev to identify the best practices in supply chain and manufacturing cost control and scale these globally. The insights from this model also allows to set clear targets for each brewery to continuously optimise costs year on year. Be inspired by this compelling session and take control of your manufacturing and supply chain costs.
