Situation 1: Complex weekly planning

  • Your situation:

    • Non-linear production with crossed flows or with bottleneck equipment used by all products (oven, autoclave, paint line, CNC, panel saw, MRI, operating room, etc.)

  • What you do:​
    • You make a plan for the week as best you can

    • You achieve your week of operation more or less according to the plan

    • You see the results and resulting issues 

    • You repeat for the following week

  • What an advanced planning tool allows:

    • On Friday you test your plan for the following week in the simulator

    • Within minutes you see results and problems for the week ahead

    • You make the adjustments to your plan that you test immediately in ​the simulator

    • You leave for the weekend with peace of mind because you know that the plan for the coming week is optimized

Situation 2: Uncertainty about future capacity needs

  • Your situation:

    • You must plan your equipment, labor, space and/or warehousing  needs for the coming year or for years to come

  • What you do:​

    • You make an Excel spreadsheet that estimates these needs based on the current as well as the demand forecasts and your experience​

    • This spreadsheet contains many simplifications compared to reality because it is not possible to take into account all the variability and complexity in un Excel spreadsheet

  • What an advanced planning tool can do:​

    • You simulate  an entire year of production in a few minutes while taking into account the variability of the processes, the probabilities of unforeseen events,  the demand seasonality for all products.

    • You can see your future equipment, labor, space and/or storage needs by day, week, month and you don't have to settle for an average.

    • Thus, you get  a complete and realistic portrait of future needs in order to make more informed decisions.
