Factory Planning and Scheduling
Optimally allocate resources
Cantier’s Factory Planning MES Software facilitates highly detailed factory floor production planning, while ascertains seamless communication tie-up with Cantier ERP Module and/or your existing ERP system to update your factory Work-In-Process (WIP) work flow and inventory status in real-time with full visibility.
Material Requirements Plan (MRP)
Breaks down Customer Order and or Sales forecast quantity into component material requirements. Using the latest product BOM explosion is done to compute the gross materials requirement. Current inventory and outstanding purchases are considered to calculate net requirements. Based on suppliers’ acceptable Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) and delivery lead time, actual part purchase quantity is adjusted, and a Purchase Requisition is created for management approval. In this manner, the system helps you to deliver parts on time while maintaining inventory and Work In Process (WIP) to an optimal level.
Capacity Requirements Plan (CRP)
Breaks down Customer Order and or Sales forecast quantity into machine and tool requirements. Using the latest Routing, the system computes machine and tools hours requirement. These are transformed into machine units considering the factory shift calendar.
Finite Capacity Scheduling
Calculates how much work can be produced in a certain time period, taking into consideration resource constraints (materials, equipment, tools and people) and generates a line loading plan. The goal of finite capacity scheduling is to make real time adjustments to ensure that work proceeds efficiently throughout the plant.
Shop calendar defines workdays and holidays
Automatic Work Order/Job Order generation directly from the Production Scheduling
Allows manual order entry
Backward scheduling from Customer required dates
PO generation from net demand relative to reorder levels
Machine scheduling assures that product and “qualified” equipment match
Solutions to equipment downs by splitting/running in alternative lines
Provides planning visibility and the opportunity to group like orders
Provide manufacturing operators order of production per equipment
Daily dispatch List by work center
Makes sure adequate resources are available for every build before start of production
Reduces labor cost associated with documenting and reconciling the error prone paper and pencil or spread sheets of the past
By eliminating potential conflicts on the factory floor, improves throughput while maintaining the lowest possible WIP inventory level
When delays do occur, management has instant visibility to issues and the system will automatically reschedule the production date and provide new estimated delivery date
Plan manufacturing activities, delivery schedules and purchasing activities
