Production Planning

FuturMaster Production Planning manages every stage of your production process (finished products, semi-finished products, raw materials and components), develops realistic plans (considering capacity and flow synchronisation) and optimises your operations (quality of service, use of resource, stock availability).

RESPONDING TO YOUR CHALLENGES:

The FuturMaster Production Planning tool is driven by powerful algorithms and mathematical optimisation to develop production plans that best meet demand whilst minimising cost and making efficient use of available resources.

Production Planning This solution is designed to:

  • model complex flows (multiple levels of bill of material and production routings, multiple sites, alternatives, loss rates, co-products, etc.)
  • respect multiple constraints (site production output, equipment capacity, team and subcontractor availability, storage limitations, technical and regulatory constraints, suppliers constraints, etc.)
  • consider end-to-end costs to develop a plan that achieves the optimal compromise between meeting demand, satisfying business requirements and reducing costs
  • model alternative demand or production scenarios to support high level planning and easily compare results. (Rough Cut Capacity Planning, Sales and Operations Planning)
  • utilise advanced diagnostics to identify the cause of existing issues

We try to adhere to the principals of ‘just-in-time’ production and never over-stocking, but it’s a fine balance optimising the process and avoiding stopping production because of missing parts.
