Seiki’s real time manufacturing planning software is a complete finite capacity solution designed to provide a high level of visibility and control of your production process. The system provides a dynamic, fast and flexible solution to a typically complex management procedure.
Simple drag and drop technology allows users to undertake ‘what if’ scenario planning to find an alternative, viable production plan. Automated planning and scheduling algorithms ensure an optimal schedule is achieved to minimise downtime. The software will automatically re-schedule the workload for the affected resource and all the operations across the entire shop floor so you can see the real affects of changes to the production schedule. A simple traffic light system allows you to preview the consequence of any changes, highlighting the potential impact to the delivery date on all jobs. This graphical appreciation of the workload across the facility is a significant advantage in a competitive market that demands flexibility. Maintaining manufacturing control and visibility ensures that investments made in production resources are maximised.
The Seiki Scheduler provides critical business intelligence from finished jobs and operations. The system contains analysis and reporting functions that are designed to interrogate the data held within the Scheduler database, simplifying the analysis process by condensing the information into single graphical displays for live reporting. Standard analysis features include on-time scheduled work, average works order pass through time, estimated vs actual production costs and resource utilisation.
