At a Glance

Client: Fortune 50

Delivered: Supply Planning

Industry: CPG, Food & Beverage

Company Size: 65B

 

Client Problem:

-Limited Sequencing Functionality Within the Legacy Environment

-Limited capabilities around creating a consistent, predetermined sequence for production scheduling in order to maximize manufacturing output.

-The typical “color wheel” process is very difficult to model in legacy PPDS using standard configuration and master data.

 

SCM Connections’ Solution:

-Utilized Product Master Data and Detailed Scheduling to Model Production Sequencing

-This solution utilizes core functionality within APO to define an optimal sequence to minimize setup and transition times.

-Schedule orders either interactively or through a background process.

-Simplify master data maintenance.

 

Benefits:

-Maximized Efficiency in Production Schedule

-Sequencing and scheduling are configured to support a consistent, operationally efficient schedule based on optimal operational production flow.

-Complete flexibility in master data management to support dynamic operational needs.

-Does the “heavy lifting” for the scheduler, allowing them to focus on managing exceptions.

-20% reduction in scheduler effort to create a consistent schedule.
