Every successful production process must be carefully planned to make the best possible use of all available resources. Smart production planning requires time and efficient management of materials, labor, and equipment, therefore let us introduce iProduction Planning application.
Production planning consists of:
- planning and supervision of the production process
- correlation of resources (materials, machinery, labor)
- accurate prediction of the type of materials and the amount used
- scheduling production jobs
- distributing production to workgroups, jobs, and machines
iProduction Planning application includes:
- process strategy
- combining different machines, depending on availability
- calculation of required materials
- stock of materials
- capacity utilization
- grouping the production steps and their order of execution
- client deadlines
Taking all of that into consideration, we have developed a smart solution for production planning that will handle all of these requirements with minimal effort.
The flexible workspace that adapts to your needs
Our application enables different manufacturing approaches and supports various types of production.
Store annual, quarterly and monthly production plans in one place.
iProduction Planning remembers individual settings that do not affect the settings of other users. Each user can arrange his or her workspace to make it perfectly suitable for the task at hand by filtering and viewing specific action plans. Furthermore, iPP will load the previously saved data set every time it starts.
iProduction Planning works well with the system
The Commercial sector opens manufacturing orders and requests the needed materials. Technology then forms a work order with initial operation times. Warehouse reports a status of supplies while Production handles actual operations, machine availability and production time per unit.
Retrieved information from the production:
- machine setup time
- working time of the machines and their failures
- manufacturing time of one product unit
All of these parameters are collected and compiled into meaningful information to lay out optimal production plan. iPP makes it easier to determine every stage of production – input requirements, per-machine actions and per-unit working time.
iProduction Planning characteristics
Gantt chart is the most detailed work plan in production. It determines the division of work and sequence of operations based on available resources and necessary tools.
It allows operations to be completed with maximum possible efficiency. The process runs according to schedule, and every available element is utilized correctly.
From the Gantt chart view, users can select time periods, operations and machines for which they want a more detailed view. They can also change the order of manufacturing in case of an emergency, see the relation between interdependent operations, and much more. Work orders, operations to be executed, planned actions, state of the material, list of machines and their details, production in progress and delivery reports – sorted by buyers or days – are available at any time.
