Scheduling

FuturMaster Scheduling optimises the sequence of orders on the production line and improves use of equipment, taking into account any downtime and resource availability.

RESPONDING TO YOUR CHALLENGES:

To respond to the challenges that your business is facing, the FuturMaster Scheduling solution uses a sophisticated scheduling algorithm to maximise line efficiency while guaranteeing timely delivery of orders. An interactive Gantt chart provides the planner with the tools to assess the schedule immediately and effectively implement the desired plan.

Scheduling

This solution is designed to:

  • factor in any downtime
  • assess product lines and take into account any potential limitations (allergen, colour, scent, size, etc.)
  • apply operational schedules
  • divide the production line into efficient segments
  • allow the operator to drag and drop production orders to change the sequence of actions
  • keep record of the production orders’ start time, end time, quantity, booking date
  • adjust schedule in response to any changes in priority requirements

The high level of automation was important due to the thousands of SKU’s that were being forecasted and the erratic nature of corrugated demand patterns. In addition, the sales force had previously not been engaged in the forecasting process, so it was essential that the system focused their attention on the major lines that required their input.
