Schedule & Sequence Optimisation

We can help to develop factory scheduling strategies for the most complex factories;

Factory Sequencing

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:

  1. Find the sequence with which the line can cycle through all the products with the minimum total setup time.
  2. Choose the shortest production run length for the products that is compatible with meeting demand.

Factory Scheduling

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.
