“This year’s CIO 100 class demonstrates grit, innovation, and deep teamwork. Many projects are related to streamlining data flows and insights to drive the business, bringing innovations like the metaverse to life, and driving value during the pandemic in myriad ways,” said Anne McCrory, Group VP, Customer Experience & Operations, Foundry, formerly IDG Communications, Inc. “We are honored to showcase these achievements and the people behind them as we gather in person once again for a team-based experience at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards in California in August.”

CoorsTek received the 2022 CIO 100 Award – its second CIO 100 Award in two years – for the Model Plant initiative, an integrated systems strategy focused on increasing production operator efficiency, providing key metrics to manufacturing management and preparing CoorsTek for a future ERP implementation.

“We are thrilled to receive a 2022 CIO 100 Award, an honor that truly reflects the commitment of the CoorsTek IT team to build efficiency into our manufacturing processes,” said Matt Mehlbrech, VP of Information Technology for CoorsTek. “The Model Plant consists of fully integrated systems such as ERP, manufacturing operations management (MOM), quality management systems (QMS), and machine connectivity, all coming together to provide a single, user-friendly console for the production operator. It gives insight to key performance indicators in real time, which means fewer errors within our processes and less time working through remediation. Our operations leaders are embracing the benefits of this system and looking forward to future, even greater, IT innovation on the plant floor.”
