Focus on Scheduling. Only the 'Lean' Survive!
Volatile fluctuations in customer demand from one day to the next. New product mixes being developed at a rapid pace to attract new customers. Resources being slashed. Does this sound familiar? Does your business have the agility to respond quickly to the turmoil of the recession? Does your business have the foundations in place to 'make to order' rather than 'make to stock'? Sounds like you need EmsPT Finite Capacity Scheduling [FCS] Solutions on your side.
Why you need to automate your Scheduling
Scheduling for dynamic demand fluctuations is extremely complex and time consuming. Spreadsheets, Wall Boards and ERP/MRP software are not enough. Each product mix needs its own set of processes; imagine identifying thousands of potential routes in a process environment without computerisation. Add 'lean' stock-holding budgets and limited space into the mix and FCS solutions is your best option. Why? Because none of the alternatives above can reflect accurately what is happening on the shop floor. And for a business trying to survive the recession, that's a hard decision, not a smart decision. Our customers have found EmsPT Scheduling Solutions to be more accurate than their incumbent system - why not talk to us and see why!
