Producing consumer goods in an efficient, accurate and cost-effective manner requires the successful implementation of an effective planning process that optimizes a plant and its production lines. It is no longer enough to design a plant for stable and steady production. In the consumer goods market, production processes require continuous adaptation as consumers’ preferences change and increased personalization drives many more, smaller lot sizes.

Our comprehensive planning and scheduling solution directly imports information from product design (the product’s Digital Twin) and from ERP and automation systems, allowing planners to analyze complex situations while taking into account corporate constraints and rules. Using our solution makes it possible to generate and evaluate multiple scenarios so you can react quickly and intelligently to changes.

Production Planning & Scheduling

Solution Capabilities

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Advanced Constraint Modeling

Model advanced resource constraints and advanced inter-operation constraints including limits on the time between operations. Determine whether these can be extended.

Advanced Material Handling

Implement customer-specific rules to account for how materials are to be consumed.

Advanced Schedule Optimization

Define additional schedule optimization rules to minimize changeover times, account for preferred sequencing, and campaigning. Build composite rules using the workflow tool.

Assembly Process Visualization

Visualize the production process, from raw materials through to finished goods and sales orders.  Visualize material dependencies and identify where shortages will occur.

BOM Level Planning

Calculate proposed purchase requirements from production planning BOMs and export to an ERP system, Excel, etc. for action as needed.

Development Environment

Access and alter the database schema as required to solve specific scheduling problems and create custom data manipulation tools for use with the workflow engine.

Interactive Schedule Visualization

Display the Master Production Schedule as stock and capacity graphs. Easily edit it and visualize the changes in linked plots and grids.

Interactive Schedule Visualization

View, search, and interact with schedules to track the progress of orders, assess production performance, and provide up-to-the-minute work-to-do lists.

Make-To-Order Planning

Evaluate the effects of future demand changes and quickly determine whether it is possible to meet new requirements.
