Digitalization is changing everything, and manufacturers must react quickly and intelligently to unexpected changes, while being able to respond to shorter lead times and satisfy customer demands. These challenges are faced not only by large enterprises, but also small and medium businesses.
Many companies may try to get by using their ERP system and, possibly, some spreadsheets. Sure, that’ll keep you going for a while but as their products and processes grow in complexity the lack of reflexibility and responsiveness become a barrier to growth and operational excellence.
Eventually, you need a solution that has been specifically developed to meet this need, using advanced algorithms that balance demand and capacity to generate achievable production schedules.
To remain competitive you need a solution that can provide long-term strategic planning covering months and years, medium-term tactical planning with a few weeks planning horizon and for detailed sequencing and scheduling.
With the right solution you can have:
- Reduced complexity
- Reduced WiP stocks
- Increased flexibility
- Improved on-time delivery
- Enhanced productivity
