Towards Better Profitability

Production Planning and Control

Challenge for production is to react fast and cost-efficiently to ever more unpredictable demand ... and to do it faster than competitors.

Benefits gained by developing production planning:

  • Maximizing production throughput and improving resource utilization
  • Reducing tied-up capital in intermediate and final goods inventories
  • Faster reaction to altering customer needs

Developing Production Planning

Goal:
To define S&OP processes and rules which ensure service-level and cost-efficient production.

Implementation: 
Workshops to define new model of operation and to commit personnel to change.

Deliverables:
New developed process, responsibilities, contents of plans and tools.

Production Optimization

Goal:
To define rules to minimize total costs of production and ensure  desired service-level.

Implementation:
To define rules using cost-based production planning  tool (Oracle PSP).

Deliverables:
Definition of make-to stock and make-to-order products, batch sizes and production cycles, production sequence and
safety stock levels. Production cost calculation model.
