Production Planning & Scheduling

Production Scheduling with Optimity Software

Planning – the key to smart manufacturing

Your production plans should give you absolute confidence – in advance – that your production tightly matches present and future demand, meets target stock levels, and maximizes utilization of your bottlenecks. Optimity solves the complex questions of what, how much and when to produce, adhering to your business’ rules and supply chain constraints.

Production plans that maximize your profits

For maximum profitability, production must be optimized in the context of your overall supply chain. Production planning is an integral part of Optimity’s solution, enabling you to create high-quality plans that meet your customer and inventory requirements at the lowest possible cost.

By combining production planning with production scheduling, you can minimize your locked planning horizon, giving you more flexibility to take advantage of short term demand.

Finite capacity scheduling

Optimity empowers your planners and puts them in control, no matter how complex or fast-paced your production is.

The solution considers finite capacity as well as material availability. Your schedules are always fully optimized and ready to execute “out-of-the-box”, with little or no need for manual adjustment. This is in stark contrast to MRP schedules which assume infinite capacity and require a lot of additional work to ensure they are feasible and ready for release.

Dynamic Gantt charts with real-time validation

Interactive Gantt charts provide a clear and up-to-date view of your schedules. Planners can use drag-and-drop to make adjustments, knowing that the plan will always remain valid.

Configurable dashboards and reports provide performance feedback for each of your production resources, order types, and demand categories. And if things don’t go to plan, you will know straight away where the issue is.

Scheduling methods that meet your objectives

Choose the scheduling method that best matches your business goals. Forward finite scheduling is excellent if you want to maximize resource utilization and customer service. If your focus is on minimizing stock and lead times, the TOC or JIT strategies are better options.

Whether your schedule needs to address complex sequencing problems, specific batch sizing rules, or match tooling and operator skills to a particular task, Optimity will take care of it.

Powerful “What-if?” analysis

Scheduling decisions often have to be made quickly. Can we increase the quantity of this order? What do we do when a material shipment is delayed? Optimity lets you run as many “what-if” scenarios as you want and allows you to evaluate the impact of your actions before you proceed.

Order priority management

Optimity automatically keeps track of your order priorities. If a high-priority customer order is dependent on a set of production orders, the customer and production orders are synchronized and given the same priority in the schedule. If there’s a delay, you can easily drill down to find out what’s causing it.
