Factory Scheduling

Industrial production Scheduling

The best production scheduler for your company

Scheduling is the first step in the construction of a production plan. It is a global production planning activity that assigns a sequence of activities to each resource (mechanical, digital, human), taking advantage of production process simulation.

Main features of a software for industrial production scheduling

A software that works as a work scheduler for planning and optimizing industrial production:

  • Manages the global scheduling of plant production resources and capacities, taking into account customer order priorities and constraints in order to respect delivery deadlines and service levels
  • Supports the optimization of production sequences, reducing plant set-up times and product transformation lead times
  • Manages all incoming raw materials as needed for the production process, synchronizing procurement plans, quality control and material handling
  • Enables simulation and benchmarking of alternative production scenarios with related KPI analysis, “what if” analyses, and change propagation
  • Enhances production scheduling generation, so that short-term plans match tactical planning and synchronizes them with actual production.

Benefits of a production scheduling software

Scheduling business production activities brings several strategic benefits:

  • Improve finite capacity work plan and customer order tracking.
  • Production lead time reduction.
  • Inter-operational and line buffer reduction.
  • Prompt call for materials from suppliers.
  • Inventory level cost reduction.

Features of Factory Scheduling, the sedApta Suite component for web-based production plan optimization

Within the sedApta Suite, Factory Scheduling is the tool for global production planning and dynamic allocation of production orders. 

Factory Scheduling allows users to create a production plan, balancing medium/long-term production objectives with short term optimization needs. It supports:

  • Finite capacity resource scheduling
  • Production sequence optimization
  • Materials management
  • Multi-scenario analysis
