Adcock Ingram to run manufacturing systems on Linux
South African healthcare business Adcock Ingram has moved its manufacturing system on to Linux servers. The company, part of the Tiger Brands group, has replaced its existing business planning and control system (BPCS) with Oracle\’s E-Business Suite.
The company will now use Oracle\’s Process Manufacturing, including the planning and scheduling modules, running on Linux, to control the manufacturing process. The move is part of the company\’s move to better integrate the manufacturing process into the Tiger Foods division which already runs Oracle.
The system will be supported by Dell Intel servers running Oracleâ€™s Real Application Clusters.
