HELSINKI, Aug. 10, 2010 (Press Release) -ABB, the leading power and automation technology group will upgrade the Collaborative Production Management (CPM) system at Corenso's coreboard mill in Pori, Finland.

The delivery includes ABB's cpmPlus solutions for production planning, production management, quality management and decision support. Included in the contract is also ABB's production diary and production costing functionality. The CPM system will be integrated to Corenso's ERP system, various production systems and laboratory devices. The new system provides visibility to the production process and helps to allocate costs to the final products. It streamlines the operations as all mill functions can be handled in one comprehensive system. The production diary also improves the communication between different process/personnel groups.

The new CPM system is planned to be taken in use in November 2010, less than 5 months after contract signing.
