Tackle the most challenging planning situations with powerful ready-to-configure features
AI Optimisation and Algorithms
Generate a dynamic production sequence that is responsive to demand and business objectives. Powered by AI. Don’t cast your production wheel in stone. You decide whether to accept, reject or edit the optimiser’s recommendations.
SKUs, Groups and Forecasts
Simplify the planning process, smooth forecasts, increase plan stability and postpone SKU-level decisions until closer in time by grouping SKUs. Utilise time-phased forecasts in daily, weekly or monthly time-buckets.
Simulate at will. Results in minutes. Clone and modify inputs to determine impact. Compare results and banish “I’ll get back to you” from your lexicon.
Resources, Capacity & Changeovers
Foundational to an accurate production plan, represent each resource in detail. Time-bucketed capacity calendars and planned downtime increase accuracy of capacity representation. Run-rates and batch-sizes that vary by line for each product and product groups increase accuracy of plans. A detailed changeover time and cost matrix ensures a dynamic production sequence with minimal approximations that is responsive to demand and other business goals.
Ensure that you’re reserving capacity to make the right products, in the right quantities for the right customers at the right time with easily configurable priorities and parameters.
Inventory matters. Control stock levels between minimum and maximum limits to best meet business objectives.
Configuration, not Customisation
Manage business logic, constraints and goals quickly and easily. Whether it’s maximising demand or minimising changeovers or maximising capacity utilisation or minimising inventory, you decide how important each objective is, and you decide which is a hard constraint and which can be violated. No coding, no customisation, no PhD necessary!
