PlanIT is an advanced production planning tool ideal for resource and machine dependent production facilities. With this one-stop application, line managers have a holistic overview of the factory floor including available inventory and labour capacity, delivery timelines. The application integrates seamlessly with the existing ERP thereby ensuring complete visibility for proper planning.
As the managers address bottlenecks in work in progress inventory and production cycle, the performance of production lines increases with careful scheduling of active orders, backlog orders by balancing people and machines for best performance.
PlanIT combines the world sales and operations. First of its kind, the highly integrated demand and production planning system helps create a statistical modelling to reduce inaccuracies thus optimising capacity and utilisation. The system allows the user to build a master production schedule that serves as a base plan with complete visibility. With a holistic view of the factory, the order planning and scheduling is effortless with maximum possible workload orders to factory. The multiple modelling options allows higher confidence levels with 15% increase in orders loading at factory level.
PlanIT seamlessly syncs with the existing ERP to give a complete picture. The production planning and scheduling application is built on a mathematical modelling approach using finite capacity modelling algorithm. This approach increases planning accuracy by 85%. For demand planning, the application uses historical forecast and shipping data and correlates with current projection and demand using statistical tools to arrive at an “adjusted demand”. This allows the demand planner to arrive at a consensus and release the demand for production. Using Theory of Constraints methodology, every order follows a plan and schedule on flow through model.
