In today’s dynamic manufacturing environments, each facility’s production control department must constantly provide and update production schedules that are at once feasible and comprehensive.  Without the benefit of an advanced scheduling system, the challenge of generating a production schedule that is more than just feasible – one that hits all promised delivery dates, maximizes utilization, and minimizes work-in-process – might seem out of reach.

Advanced scheduling is a critical decision support tool for a modern manufacturing facility, which must respond to an ever-changing product mix; to multiple routings and material flows; to rush orders that jump to the front of the calendar; and to equipment breakdowns that push everything back. 

Research indicates that using an automated scheduling tool that can model your manufacturing processes will lead to improvements in one or more of the following areas:

  • Higher productivity
  • Lower levels of WIP
  • Improved delivery performance
  • Reductions to labor overtime and overhead
