NETRONIC Software | Production scheduling - a competitive edge in uncertain times

16:15 - 17:00 Forum 1 Back to event schedule

Join this session to learn how production scheduling helps bring certainty in uncertain times. Thus, production scheduling gives a competitive edge to you as a partner and your manufacturing customers. I will show examples of how different manufacturing companies gain operational agility with advanced yet visual production scheduling fully integrated into Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. The first example is a discrete, repetitive manufacturing company. This company has to handle a high volume of production orders with short lead times. Increasing utilization of their crucial work and machine centers is essential for them. The second example is a discrete, configure-to-order manufacturer. They produce components and sub-assemblies on stock, while the final delivery is make-to-order, with the demand coming from a sales order. Their initial processes are those from a machine shop, while the last processes are those from an assembly shop dominated by manual work. For them, it is important to give their customers very reliable delivery time commitments.
