Production planning and scheduling can be complex and time consuming, especially when relying on subjective knowledge, manual un-integrated spreadsheets and ERP’s infinite capacity. Production schedules created in this way often result in un-reliable delivery dates, excessive or insufficient stock, and poor quality and resource utilisation.
