Intelligent Production Planning
Dynamic production sequences at Product Group level for Tactical Planning
Transform and scale production planning
Business risk continues to mushroom. Disruptive volatility like weather events and global health crises are increasing in frequency and intensity. Customers are more demanding. Trucks and drivers are harder to find. Rapid boom-bust cycles require extreme agility to avoid shortage or excess. The sprint to unlock more capacity, more flexibility, more revenue, more margin is at the speed of thought. Manual, Excel or ERP-based production planning processes cannot keep pace, and cost you time, money and resources.
Replan production planning solution helps you streamline complex planning, generate dynamic, responsive production sequences, automate and evaluate multiple scenarios, and optimise mid-term production plans. The result is a transformed supply chain with increased throughput, reduced cost and increased agility.
Your supply chain and your people face tremendous pressure to plan and respond quickly, intelligently and confidently. Replan production planning features empower you to take on the various planning situations that today’s world may throw at you.
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.
Recipes, routings and Bills-of-materials
Capture accurate material flow with every recipe, routing and bill-of-material. Levels, steps, resources, material and even co-products can all be multiple. Specify alternate lines and resources, and priority cost factors that guide line selection.
Resources, Capacity and 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.
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.
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.
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!
