Finite Capacity Scheduling: Optimizing a Constrained Supply Chain introduces the reader to a important tool for driving enterprise and supply chain competitive excellence. It teaches the reader methods to beat the competition by: · Reducing in-stock inventory and inventory cost · Reducing logistics costs · Increasing on time delivery which increases customer satisfaction · Reducing stock-outs · Improved Supply Chain and Enterprise scheduling and load balancing This book’s focal point is on scheduling and coordinating demand for Material, Labor, Machine resources and balancing them with to be had Capacity. Finite Capacity Scheduling identifies an executable balance between resource demand and resource availability; all whilst coordinating shipments to Supply Chain management systems. FCS schedules the whole lot from HMLV systems and components to HVLM production items; all this whilst interfacing with enterprise-wide ERP systems. This book: · Shows how FCS optimizes resource scheduling options; including material, equipment, workforce, tools, and so forth.; anything that creates a constraint on throughput. · Describes methods to seamlessly integrate FCS and ERP in a single database · Explains how FCS effectively coordinates material and capacity resources · Shows how FCS delivers feasible Finite Scheduling for Material and Capacity · Schedules work in response to actual material and capacity availability · Supports interfacing ERP production with Supply Chain Management systems. · Explains how and why FCS offers feasibility and flexibility The book is a comprehensive guide to figuring out, implementing and managing material and capacity resources for the full Supply Chain Management Spectrum of production scheduling applications including complex High Mix Low Volume (HMLV) and simplistic High Volume Low Mix (HVLM) production environments.
