Allocate and schedule plant and machinery resources, plan human resources, plan production processes and purchase materials.
Production scheduling is the process of arranging, controlling and optimizing work and workloads in a production process or manufacturing process. It is the interpreter between production, operations and business systems. Production planning, when integrated into your ERP significantly shortens lead time. You can also lower your inventories, streamline material flow and use your resources more efficiently.
One of the most important manufacturing systems, the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) collects data in real-time from machines, material and people optimizing the production process. This results in increased productivity as work orders are completed more efficiently and there is less waste in material flow. With detail level control and shorter response time to changes, lead times in production become shorter. Production also becomes more cost-effective.
