PRODUCTION SEQUENCING IN PRODUCTION PLANNING DETAILED SCHEDULING
Fortune 50 CPG Food & Beverage; 65B
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.
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.
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.
