Order Slotting & Scheduling

flexis Order Slotting & Scheduling mediates real-time data between sales and production, levelling and smoothing all production orders with a medium-term planning background. Transport planning is coordinated according to material requirements and transport slots within international supply chains. This enables the traceability of daily planning in real-time.

Outcome

Efficient and reliable production means that savings can be realized quickly.

Benefit

APS system with multiple point solution. By using this solution, customers benefit from a continuous improvement process, i.e. the software learns from historical results and makes new recommendations for future production planning.

Detail Description

flexis Order Slotting & Scheduling provides information about the workflow in the order center, the sales view, and the production view. The current planning horizon is displayed in the order center, new orders and changes are actively communicated to the processors, and possible scheduling dates are displayed. The sales view displays building sites for specific order configurations and prioritizes orders. The preview of the production program visualizes assembly capacities and ensures reliable resource planning.

Alert functions in Shop Floor Management ensure early detection of malfunctions and thus provide a solid basis for decisions on rescheduling. The APS system generates a proposal for the extensive equal distribution of orders, with the option of manual rescheduling via a drag & drop function. In addition, transport planning offers efficient logistics control via full truck load-optimized allocation of transport orders (optional planning of mixed pallets) and spatial optimization of transport cubes ("load" principle).
