What is scheduling?
Scheduling is the process of planning resources and task allocation, and production scheduling is based on limited resources, comprehensively affecting production factors, to generate a reasonable and effective production schedule.
What is analysis?
Data analysis refers to the technical procedures of mining data, cleaning data, transforming data, and developing a system to manage data.
Why need analysis and scheduling?
Collecting, analyzing, and scheduling a large amount of enterprise data can help enterprises managing the resource in the most efficient way, in terms of control time and cost, to achieve the goal of maximal production capacity.
Traditional Production Planning vs. IMPACTs
|Traditional Production Planning||IMPACTs|
|First-in, first-out (FIFO) dispatching approach||Key indicators (order priority) dispatching rules|
|Cram the orders to be scheduled into the remaining capacity gap, which may cause changes in the overall production plan||It is optimally allocating the remaining capacity to improve the overall operating performance of the company.|
|The lack of a coordinated system between production management, sales, and procurement, led to an excessively long OTD lead time.||Accurately plan the completion time of customer orders and manufacturing orders, accelerating production and sales coordination and procurement processes.|
|The product and resource collocation are complicated, and it is not easy to change the production schedule.||Quickly build production models to increase the flexibility of production planning and resource allocation.|
|It is not easy to respond effectively to unexpected events, such as lack of materials and capacity.||Changing the scheduling parameter settings can quickly respond to changes in the internal and external environment (e.g., insufficient capacity, order changes) and update the production plan in real-time.|
|Use the traditional calculation tool Excel for capacity planning and recording.||A user-friendly interface is closer to user needs.|
|It is difficult to grasp and improve production pain points from historical production records.||Exact evidence from historical data and quickly fed back to the production improvement cycle (PDCA)|
Key Effects of using IMPACTs
Effective Production and Sales Coordination
Effectively utilize the available capacity, quickly respond to customers with competitive order delivery dates.
Concurrently Real-time Planning
Through IMPACTs scheduling and cloud dispatching functions, real-time synchronization of planning and execution targets, and then displaying information through the CIM-MCS function to visually manage the execution efficiency in the cloud.
Cross-system Resource Integration
Use IMPACTs to integrate with CRM, ERP, MES, and MCS systems to generate the optimized production and resource plan to enhance the enterprise's overall competitiveness and real-time decision-making capabilities.
Production Cost Simulation
By entering the production parameters, the IMPACTs system can estimate the production cost and the order's profit and then plan the production plan to reduce inventory and increase throughput.
IMPACTs will generate the outsourcing production schedule for subcontractors, effectively coordinate outsourced and in-house production schedules.
Through CIM-MCS's cloud-based machine monitor and control function, users may real-time control shop floor operations and effectively utilize capacity and resources.
