FINITE CAPACITY SCHEDULING
Get more control over production

BOOST YOUR PLANT FILL RATE WITH OUR
LEADING AUTOMATIC SCHEDULING SOLUTION

Many manufacturers dealing with complex production processes and a wide range of finished goods find that the traditional MRP systems and the modern planning and assembly systems fail to maximize their production potential in a way that maximizes the company’s profits while taking into account the wide range of constraints and meeting company policies.

Current systems cannot optimally schedule production to maximize profit in situations where there are hundreds and thousands of finished goods manufactured in different production processes, along with an order backlog greater than the factory’s production capacity.

Using innovative technology, we offer a dedicated high-quality solution for each customer, that achieves far better results than any off the shelf product.

Our production plan takes into account resource availability, various constraints and business rules such as the complex matrix (between different products and families), transition time between machines and more.

As part of the contracting process, we conduct a POC at a negligible cost within a few weeks, at the end of which the customer can assess the suitability of the solution. The POC is implemented by defining clear, quantitative efficiency targets.

As production planning is the heart of the enterprise and choosing a solution is a difficult decision, we believe that the POC stage is a must for every plant owner who wants to coordinate mutual expectations and mitigate risk.

GET MORE CONTROL OVER PRODUCTION

C&G’s dedicated Finite Capacity Scheduling tool gives you more control over production and allows you to achieve optimal production plans – improving the fill rate, inventory levels and customer service.

Our advanced mathematical models maximize asset utilization, OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) and, at the bottom line, they improve the company fill rate. The module interfaces with the forecasting and planning modules to provide an automated holistic solution.

ON-TIME DELIVERY AT MAXIMUM PROFIT

C&G’s Finite Capacity Scheduling tool aspires to maximum profit, meeting delivery times and reducing transit times while minimizing inventory levels. The system takes into account capacity constraints, production rates and availability of lines, while adhering to business rules.
