Schedule & Sequence Optimisation
We can help to develop factory scheduling strategies for the most complex factories;
A fixed repeating sequence is particularly useful in process industries (such as food & beverage) where set-up times vary markedly depending on which products you are changing from and to. We can help you to create an optimal sequence which involves two steps:
- Find the sequence with which the line can cycle through all the products with the minimum total setup time.
- Choose the shortest production run length for the products that is compatible with meeting demand.
We can model and design a factory scheduling system for the most complex production environment. This ensures full control of resource allocation and timing throughout a factory.
We do this by using the latest research in schedule optimisation and demand driven pull systems.
