Advanced Planning and Scheduling
Planning and scheduling manufacturing is incredibly complex. With each new resource or product the complexity increases. Schedules that aren't optimized can have a huge impact on profitability.
Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software tools allow production planners and schedulers to automate the repetitive tasks, and perform millions of calculations on how to optimize your production orders, work orders, BOMs, routes, and production resources (equipment, personnel, and materials). Toward Zero will help turn your production planning into a competitive advantage.
> Recover lost capacity
> Detect and avoid bottlenecks
> Better utilize key resources
> Reduce inventory
> Share the schedule with your entire team
> Quickly react to changes in resources and orders
Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) data provides Production Planners with cycle time information by product, as well as equipment downtime data. This data combined with APS software will allow you to take your production efficiency to the next level.
