Cost reduction through manufacturing planning and control using impact analysis and capacity scheduling

Objective


In order to meet the needs of visibility in the manufacturing process, the manufacturing impact analyser (MIA) has been defined. This takes data from the shop floor and applies any necessary simulation technique to give predictions as to the future state of the plant. Having done this, the MIA then filters the information in such a way that useable information is given to the right people within a manufacturing organisation. Having reported problems, a capacity scheduler uses the best known techniques and provides a set of tools for the reported problems to be corrected as quickly as possible. All this is done using minimum data from the shop floor and minimum paperwork.
