Event Information

Description:

Most manufacturers - especially custom, make-to-order, and jobshops - struggle with getting their orders to their customers on-time.  In spite of having the latest technology, most ERP's and APS systems production scheduling functionality is based on the traditional finite capacity planning model from the 1970's and 80's - and hasn't changed much since then.

This session will describe a new approach that uses digital transformation of existing workorder/job information into actionable, real-time, relevant intelligence to drive prioritization of shop floor execution.  Then, it will show how Predictive Analytics and computer simulation can be used to show future shop floor capacity loading, identify bottlenecks, and evaluate different 'what-if' production scheduling scenarios.
