About the presentation
Most manufacturers struggle with getting orders to their customers on time. Today's "High-Mix" production environments are too dynamic for traditional ERP scheduling programs based on finite capacity. Older systems are unlikely to deliver a plan that can be executed by shop-floor personnel. Even if a workable plan or schedule is created, it’s soon obsolete due to frequent changes that occur in manufacturing production environments.
Introducing a new approach: The Dynamic Production Method.
Attendees will learn how to use this method with the information they already have in their enterprise resource planning (ERP) to gain visibility and help production personnel make the right decisions. When deployed in a manufacturing environment, this methodology helps production teams answer critical production questions.
