Master Production Scheduling

Optimize the supply chain across multiple sites for the best plan and product specification adherence

Creating efficient work orders while managing inventory and customer service levels is a major challenge for oil & gas, metals, minerals, and chemicals producers. You have to make daily decisions on the size and timing of your production runs for different products. You need to consider factors such as stock coverage, resource utilization, and campaign efficiency and delivery performance. On top of that, you have to cope with unreliable lead times.

With Master Production Scheduling (MPS), demand managers can accept new orders and promise delivery dates. Production schedulers are able to decide on production plans (to reserve capacity and sales budget) amongst factories on a short-term basis. MPS takes into account resource capacity, material availability, and sales plan for longer commitments.
