The Problem

Production is filled with uncertainty. Whether it’s the late arrival of materials, machine breakdown, or a surge in high-priority orders, variability can wreak havoc with production scheduling. And let’s face it: using an Excel sheet, ERP, or some combination of the two just isn’t giving you the ability to respond as quickly as you need to unexpected changes.

The Solution

But what if you could generate (or re-generate) the best-possible schedule within minutes and send it to the shop floor, no matter how sudden or significant the change?

If you’re currently using Excel, an ERP system, a home-made scheduling solution, or some combination of the three, we invite you to join us on Wednesday, June 9th at 11:00am Eastern to learn how integrating an Advanced Planning and Scheduling solution into your existing systems can help you achieve levels of production agility and leanness you never thought possible.

But How?

Lots has been written about why companies should integrate APS into their existing ERP systems. But at the nd of the day, it really comes down to the concept of finite capacity scheduling.

Unlike an ERP or Excel, APS solutions can pull orders from your ERP and match them to the real-world constraints faced by your shop floor. With the click of one button, an APS solution can provide you with the best-possible schedule out of millions of possibilities. If something unexpected changes, you can simply change that parameter in your APS and re-generate the schedule with the click of one button. This allows you to simulate what-if scenarios to see how certain scheduling solutions will impact your key priorities, such as OTD, setup and changeover times, profitability, and high-priority orders.

With an APS solution, you can always make the best possible production situation. The idea isn’t that every situation will be perfect; it’s that you’ll simply be presented with the best of all possible worlds.

Join us to learn how APS will help you take a massive step forward in conquering production complexity by becoming learner and more agile at the same time.
