Project Overview

Client Problem

Client was experiencing limited sequencing functionality within the legacy environment resulting in limited capabilities for creating a consistent, predetermined sequence for production scheduling in order to maximize manufacturing output.

SCMC Solution

SCM Connections utilized product Master Data and detailed scheduling to model production sequencing. This solution utilized core functionality within APO to define an optimal sequence to minimize setup and transition times, simplifying Master Data maintenance and allowing client to schedule orders either interactively or through a background process.

Results

Configured sequenci ng and scheduling to support a consistent & efficient schedule based on optimal operational production flow. Implemented complete flexibility in master data management to support dynamic operational needs, resulting in a 20% reduction in scheduler effort to create a consistent schedule.
