Part 2 of 3 in E-Guide Series:
Customer Driven Production: Setting New Operational Standards to Meet Future Demands and Disruptions
Efficient production scheduling is consistently hindered by the daily juggle of optimizing lead time to hit an order. Most plant managers begin their day syncing with production planners and schedulers who detail, “This is what we think we have, this is what we think we can sell.” Trying to stay one step ahead of the daily issues that come along with a daily production goal is key to a plant manager.
This e-guide details the pieces of a customer-centric scheduling model that is driven by demand, allowing for decreased inventory costs and increased production efficiency.
Expect to learn:
- How to save money through properly placed inventory buffers that reduce inventory
