Ensuring business continuity

Valio is the biggest producer of milk and dairy products in Finland. The company’s history spans 110 years of experience in milk production. Valio and her products are recognized as pioneers in the dairy industry.

Valio’s Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is deployed at all their production facilities. Valio wanted to guarantee this mission critical system’s lifecycle, ensure the required know-how and confirm their choice of technology for the future.

Roima and Valio executed the Roadmap project which charted the current state of business critical systems, development needs, possible risks and future technology choices. The project was carried out in cooperation with Valio’s IT organization, production staff and systems supplier.

Roima’s ”Roadmapfo Manufacturing” project gave Valio a comprehensive overview of the current state of their production IT systems and any development requirements, risks and possible future systems solutions. Roima’s expertise helped narrow the choice in systems to just one and prioritize the development requirements into concrete actions to be taken – in other word a Roadmap for the future in the short and longer term. These will help Valio guarantee the lifecycle of their production critical systems and the continuity of their business in the future.

”Roima’s roadmap report fully fulfilled the objectives we had. The project progressed systematically according to plans, on schedule and giving us results. We are happy with the outcome. The results confirmed our own observations but also brought forward a host of new opportunities for improvements in both the long and short run”, says Valio’s Chief of IT Mika Puustinen.
