Production Planning

Production / Supply Planning

Production or Supply chain planning / scheduling will encompass how all operational functions interact on an operational, tactical and strategic level.

Master Data is often a key fundamental that is forgotten at this point, as a business we need to all be singing off the same hymn sheet, whether its line speeds, capacity constraints, machine capabilities and so on. Differing functions with differing views of the world will only lead to waste, cost and customer service issues.

Planning will co-ordinate and organise from point of order / sales forecast through to procurement of materials, to planning / scheduling of the operation, to warehousing, goods out and product out to your customer through your logistics network. Co-ordinating all these functions effectively requires a good appreciation and understanding off all these business process’s (and constraints) as well as the business priorities & the relevant cost drivers.
