Production Planning & Scheduling

Production Scheduling with Optimity Software

Planning – the key to smart manufacturing

A production plan should give you absolute confidence that you can meet both present and future demand – at the lowest possible cost to your business.

Optimity calculates what, where, when, and how much you need to produce. And because the optimizer respects all your business rules and constraints, the result is an always feasible plan that maximizes business profits.

Production plans that maximize your profits

To achieve maximum profitability, you need to consider production within the context of your extended supply chain.

Production planning is an integral part of Optimity’s supply chain optimization solution. The tool synchronizes all your production sites, allowing you to 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.

Dynamic scheduling

The scheduling solution considers finite capacity and material availability, meaning you can execute your schedules “out-of-the-box”. Choose forward finite scheduling to maximize resource utilization and customer service. If your priority is to minimize stock and lead times, the TOC or JIT strategies are better options.

Dynamic Gantt charts increase visibility and flexibility. Your planners drag and drop operations in the charts and Optimity dynamically reschedules the jobs while maintaining schedule integrity.

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

Workbench for manual updates

The situation on the factory floor is constantly changing. That’s why we’ve made it quick and easy to make manual adjustments to your production plan – without the need to re-run the optimizer.

The production workbench allows your planners to add and update production orders, including quantities, timings, and statuses. And because they can immediately see the impact of their changes on capacity utilization, stock levels, and customer service, the plan’s quality will remain intact.

Production Planning Workbench, Optimity Software

Full visibility with user-defined dashboards

User-defined dashboards give your production planners and the team complete visibility of your entire supply chain.

With KPIs and metrics such as resource utilization, delivery performance, and plan cost at your fingertips, you can stay ahead of any manufacturing issues.

You can tailor dashboard content by role, giving each user access to precisely the information they need.

Powerful “What-if?” analysis

Scheduling decisions often have to be made quickly. Can I 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, allowing 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 quickly drill down to find out what’s causing it.
