Introduction

For manufacturing companies, the production planning and operation scheduling forms the heart of the shop floor operations. A systematic and scientifically proven planning models and processes could minimize resource requirements, reduce production time and inventory levels. Improved asset utilization reduces capital requirements. Reduced production time results in lesser working capital requirement. Other factors remain the same, both improvements results higher profit margin and better Return on Capital Employed.

Resources in production include machinery, labor, and materials in the form of inventory. Better planning results in shorter production cycles, leading to shorter cash flow cycles. A production planning and scheduling software implemented using optimization models can generate superior plans compared to human planners. Once all data is available, the actual planning process takes minutes. In addition, the production planning software brings agility and visibility to the planning. Better visibility can lead to greater control over execution.

  • Production Planning: This is required for scheduling, dispatch, inspection, quality assurance, inventory, supply chain and equipment management.
