How to mix push/pull logic– Implementing Advanced Planning and Scheduling

Challenges

3 plants, final assembly and two semi-finished part manufacturer plant

Final assembly: two-phase scheduling, pre-schedule without material availability check, final schedule with material pegging (both semi-finished and raw material)

Semi-finished manufacturers: two main operations, different scheduling logics

Solution

  • 3 different models have been implemented for the plants
  • Mixed push/pull scheduling logic

Results

Full transparency between final assembly and semi-finished plants in terms of demand times and due dates
Custom designed reports
Reduced time on schedule generating
