Advanced Planning & Scheduling
Make a Promise, Keep a Promise
Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) provides an incredible array of tools to help you consistently and cost-effectively meet customer order due dates while optimizing your material and production plans. APS' lean planning and scheduling processes concurrently synchronize material and capacity uses to customer orders while minimizing operational overhead. As an integral piece of our ERP system, APS puts customer orders at the center of your business model. Synchronizing all the factory's various demands with materials and capacity constraints lets you obtain precise promise dates for all customer orders and know you can meet those dates.
Unlike older MRP software, APS combines capacity constraints with your material plan, alerting you when orders and replenishments will be late, and synchronizing your plan to your customers' demands. APS is a predictive tool that will tell you what problems are coming in the future, giving you time to react and still meet your plan. APS plans each demand individually, from top to bottom in a single pass, taking your priority demands first to ensure your promises are kept. You have complete visibility into every plan that APS creates and how it will be fulfilled.
APS enhances CloudSuite Industrial's planning and scheduling by integrating all key production elements - on hand inventory, supply, production capacity, routings, and resource availability - into a near-term, real-time planning and execution tool. APS is a strategic weapon in your efforts to improve competitiveness, profitability, productivity, and customer satisfaction. It dynamically synchronizes the flow of materials and the use of resources (machines, personnel, tooling, fixtures, etc.) throughout the entire system so you can match promises to actual delivery dates.
