How Production Scheduling is Crucial to Manufacturing Facilities

In today’s dynamic manufacturing environments, your facility’s production control departments might spend hours every day trying to draft a feasible schedule. So, do you want a production schedule that is more than feasible? Do you want one that hits promised delivery dates, maximizes utilization, and minimizes work-in-process?

Advanced Scheduling is a critical decision support tool for your manufacturing facility.

  • An ever-changing product mix.
  • Multiple routings and material flows.
  • Rush orders that jump to the front of the calendar, equipment breakdowns that push everything back.

Our research indicates that using scheduling tools that can accurately model your manufacturing processes will lead to improvements in one or more of the following areas:

  • 25% increase in productivity
  • 50% reduction in WIP
  • 80% improvement in delivery performance
  • 80% reduction in scheduling labor overhead

Goals of webinar:

  • Describe the issues and circumstances that indicate the need for advanced scheduling
  • Investigate why consolidating enterprise systems can’t solve operational scheduling needs
  • Discuss characteristics of an advanced scheduling system
  • Explore the qualitative and quantitative benefits of an advanced scheduling system
