Over the last few decades, a certain autonomisation of dynamics and complexity has become apparent in commerce and manufacturing.
On the one hand, production is relocated due to cost and wage issues. On the other hand, growth can only be achieved through opening up new markets. Internal process optimisation is no longer proving sufficient, since its savings and improvement potentials have largely been exhausted.
Production planning and control processes through PPS concepts
Production planning and control are at the centre of any manufacturing company and have a large impact on the performance of your products and therefore the performance of your company.
You should look critically at your order processing, in particular the production planning and control, materials management and the PPS systems and methods used.
Only if you have effective production planning processes that are tailored to your company will you achieve excellent planning quality. Improved production planning and the use of efficient control concepts/principles can optimise your company’s production supply and its ability to deliver on time considerably. As a result, you will also ensure short throughput times and lower stock levels at your company.
As experienced PPS consultants, we support you in designing your production planning and control processes.
Using our own custom software, we are able to identify the weak points of your PPS system.
We will find out whether the required parameters such as
bills of material
are maintained and calculated correctly.
