Production planning and management

In machine and systems engineering, thousands of production orders with numerous work processes often have to be intelligently distributed over countless resources. Manual planning is hardly possible here. With intelligent production planning and control against limited planning, adherence to delivery dates can be increased and backlogs reduced.

OUR GOALS WITH YOUR COMPANY IN PRODUCTION PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT

  • ADHERENCE TO DELIVERY DATES

  • PLANNING SECURITY

  • COORDINATION AND SYNCHRONIZATION OF ALL PARTS & ORDERS

  • MATERIAL FLOW OPTIMIZATION

  • REDUCTION OF EXPENSES

  • HIGH CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

Companies with complex manufacturing and planning processes require suitable planning tools. Conventional ERP systems ignore the important question of which production step with which resource and part is to be procured and when it should be realistically planned. Therefore, in order to achieve short production cycles with minimum stock in circulation and maintain high adherence to delivery dates, it is important to ensure that you are using sufficient planning tools.

As a supplement to data-managing ERP systems, an intelligent APS system provides for production control and planning:

  • Optimized planning with limited capacity
  • Dissolution of backlog
  • Consideration of collective orders
  • Simulation.
