Webinar: How to get Master Production Scheduling, MRP & Detailed Scheduling to Play Nice

webinar description

Many manufacturing companies struggle with customer satisfaction and manufacturing costs due to disconnects between three distinct planning processes.

One process - Master Production Scheduling (MPS) - is often supported by a module in their ERP system. This plan usually has weekly buckets of how much to produce based on the difference between forecasted demand and actual demand. This plan may even take constraints into account. However, unless the production environment is very simple, an ERP MPS typically can’t handle constraints well. You don’t know whether the plan is feasible to execute because traditional MPS systems can’t easily or quickly take constraints into consideration.

Another process – Material Requirements Planning (MRP) – is often utilized by manufacturers with multi-step production processes. They will send the MPS plan to a Material Requirements Planning (MRP) system, or skip the MPS step altogether, so that dependent demand can be planned under the finished goods. But much like MPS, MRP tools do not take constraints and finite resource capacities into consideration well enough to produce a feasible production plan.

The final process, Detailed Scheduling for production, is often asked to start with an infeasible production plan. Its job is to take the MPS and/or MRP plans and execute them. Invariably, it can’t execute the plans that were infeasible from the get-go. Production quantities and dates shift. This leads to missed ship dates and customer satisfaction issues. Or expedites are introduced, which increase costs.

The good news is that there is a solution to this problem.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Hear a case study of a customer who recently revamped their planning processes

  • Hear some of the challenges that they experienced during the project

  • Learn about the remarkable results that they achieved
