Global supply chains are increasingly complex and volatile, which places pressure on production schedulers to adapt quickly to changing market conditions.
One of the biggest risks with Sales & Operations Planning is the inability to execute the strategic plan. This happens when key executives are unable to turn a sales and operations plan into executable production reality.
I-Plan ensures the production schedule stays aligned to the strategic plan and drives overall profitability. It is the alignment of planning (S&OP) with execution (S&OE) that makes this possible. The I-Plan production scheduling tools takes the firm orders and allocated demand from the S&OP process and generates an optimum production schedule to minimise overall costs respecting the production sequence, changeover times and other key operational parameters.
This functionality ensures that decisions regarding capacity planning are always taken with reference to the entire supply chain and to the impact of current operational events on future scheduling requirements.
This flexibility built into I-Plan and into the culture of our business, is designed to drive exceptional customer service while protecting you from the operational and financial effects of producing the wrong products at the wrong time.
