We are excited to announce we have a free Production Schedule Template available for download!
This template allows you to configure your products with the associated routes, operations, and cycle times along with the three resource types used for each operation:
- Equipment/Work Stations
By modeling your finite resources, you can quickly optimize the sequence you run your orders in to maximize the resources on hand. Not only can you plan out the next shift, but you can plan out weeks and months in advance to simulate resource requirements, WIP and finished goods inventory levels. This is a great method to plan!
The tool also allows you to quickly react to changes in resource availability and changes to orders. Are you asked by your sales department if a rush order can be fit in? Or the status of an order? The production schedule template allows you to easily answer these questions.
Please try it out and let us know what you think!
