Tour of Coca-Cola Refreshments Warehouse Highlighting Voice Recognition

The CSCMP Milwaukee Roundtable group, including top executives and professors from both Wisconsin and Illinois, at the Coca-Cola facility in Milwaukee, WI.

Chris Schram of Coca Cola hosted a sold out tour for the CSCMP Milwaukee roundtable on January 17th.  This tour was filled with top executives and professors from both Wisconsin and Illinois.  GE Healthcare was in attendance along with professors from top colleges and other senior executives from companies like UPS, Johnson Controls, SC Johnson and many more.

The tour began with an outstanding networking session.  The group was then treated to a “life of a can” video.  After the video, participants performed a voice pick exercise by splitting into 3 groups which included a Coca Cola manager and an order builder.  The highlight of the tour was a demonstration of the voice pick technology used at the distribution center to build and ship customer orders.

Throughout the event there was ample opportunity to network with fellow logisticians. Everyone was very grateful for the hospitality demonstrated by Coca Cola by allowing a tour of their amazing facility.
