Production aims to determine exactly what orders to be executed in the factory.
Production Scheduling is the most detailed level of supply chain planning. Production scheduling involves optimization in the near-term planning horizon. The length of this horizon can vary from hours up to a few weeks, depending on the type of business. Planning allocates orders and operations to various production resources on the factory floor. In this context, resources can include, for example, machinery, tools, personnel, or skills.
Optilon’s solution for Production Scheduling optimizes the resource utilization to meet delivery dates, while taking availability of raw materials and capacity into account. Just as for factory planning, Optilon’s solutions provide a unique opportunity for automation of planning, providing a feasible plan with a few clicks.
