Save Time and Effort
Spend less time creating production schedules and more time overseeing your facility’s operations
Production Scheduling in Minutes, Not Hours
Scheduling production for your facility can be extremely time consuming, and it is often difficult or impossible to account for all of the relevant information. Our scheduling solutions allow you to generate efficient and actionable schedules quickly and with ease, so you can focus on managing operations. With our solution, scheduling your facility becomes as simple as:
- Extracting data from your IT systems (ERP / MRP / MES / WES)
- Running the solution with the current-state data and facility-specific scheduling rules
- Pushing the resulting production schedule to the floor for execution
A Collaborative Approach to Solution Customization and Deployment
Scheduling solutions are a specialized application of our simulation services offerings. We develop a customized scheduling solution that integrates with your existing resource planning and management systems. Customizing and deploying a scheduling solution is a two-phase project that includes a solution customization phase and a support and maintenance phase.
We provide all the performance metrics and support necessary to ensure you have full confidence in the schedules generated by our custom solution. Check out our approach page for a more in-depth look at the structure of our projects and what makes them successful.
Account for Complex Business Rules and Constraints
Because we use simulation software to develop our scheduling solutions, we have infinitely more flexibility than typical constraint-based scheduling methods employed by ERP systems. We take the time to customize our solution to account for your facility’s complex business rules and constraints.
We can also deliver back-end simulation optimization to further enhance the quality of the schedule. Combining data-driven simulation and optimization allows our solutions to generate schedules that achieve your scheduling objectives to the greatest extent possible.
Maintain Control of Your Scheduling Process
We understand that each of our clients desire a different level of integration. We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to data requirements and integration with your IT systems. We collaborate with your scheduling and IT teams to ensure everyone is comfortable with the data interface we develop and the level of integration and automation. This allows you to maintain control of your scheduling process.
