It is a well-known truth, that manufacturers, who mix, blend, brew, react or distill, are facing different scheduling challenges from those, working in other industries. These challenges traditionally are not met by conventional ERP planning systems.
Advanced scheduling is easy, sophisticated and constraint-based scheduling solution that will finally solve excising scheduling difficulties, including the real world challenges that manufacturers face.
Advanced scheduling will take care of recipes, by-products, and yield losses. It is unique in ability to manage the tank restraints and silo capacity, and managing
the flow (or product) between them. It includes even shelf life, maturation times, storage restrictions, and overlapping processes. It will take care of all the pieces of the puzzle to ensure that your products are scheduled in the most efficient manner.
Companies, that have implemented the Advanced Planning component, have noticed the following changes:
On time delivery has increased by up to 5%
Time lost, due to changeovers, has decreased by as much as 30%
Cycle times was reduced by 20%
Production costs got reduced by up to 10%
Capacity utilization got increased by 1—40%
