Join our scheduling specialist Neil Saunders and managing director John Davis as they take you through an introduction to using planning and scheduling software for manufacturing operations.
Starting off with the Key Principles, we look at how finite capacity planning uses calculations and logic to predict when and where work can be carried out in an efficient and time-effective sequence, followed by why sequencing matters when planning your works order operations and how automated algorithms can save you time.
We then move on the interfacing the Seiki Scheduler to your existing ERP/MRP using intelligent interfacing technology and the data that can be exchanged between the systems. And of course extending the solution onto the shopfloor with digital work queues and machine status monitoring to collect data that can be used to improve planned vs actual performance.
We finish by going through the key features of the software and how they can be used to resond to real-life scenarios to demonstrate the benefits of using the system to balance revenues, customer demand and operational performance.
