How to Optimize Production with Flexible Tools for Planning & Scheduling

Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM) remains a high-level concept to many manufacturers today, one too complex and colossal to tackle. Medium and smaller-size manufacturers also don't have the resources or budgets to take on and maintain full-scale enterprise systems. They want to start small, stay lean and use standardized software solutions that meet their needs but are also flexible enough for future developments.

The Problem Statement:
The first step to optimal MOM is flexible operations. Flexible operations rely on a flexible production plan and schedule. You must be able to react to unexpected changes intelligently and adjust your production plan quickly in order to minimize lead times, satisfy customers and optimize throughput at the same time. This is always important, but more than ever during uncertain times. The health crisis has shown how changes in demand and supply can throw the industrial sector into chaos. With the right planning and scheduling tools in place, modern manufacturers can gain the visibility and control they need to 1. understand what is happening and 2. adjust operations in order to optimize production.

The Solution with DELMIA Ortems:
  • Production planning vs. scheduling.
  • Setup time minimization.
  • Hitting delivery dates.
  • Constraint management (resources, processes, calendars).
  • Material management and accurate inventory level projection.
  • Scheduling machine repair.
  • "What if" analysis for better decision-making.
