Production planning

NAS® provides an advanced planning system that takes into account:

  • Bill of materials
  • Resources needed for the production of each (half) of the product (manufacturing cells, tools, and staff)
  • Time needed to prepare the production cells, which might depend on material previously produced in a production cell
  • Time and size of production batches
  • Individual work schedules
  • Stocks of material needed for production

NAS® automatically arranges individual production orders by production cells and assigns them time slots in an As Soon As Possible (ASAP) or Just In Time (JIT) manner. The results are the occupancy review of production cells and other necessary resources, and the forecast of the stock material levels (consumption and production are based on the current stocks, announced acquisitions, and shipping).

The operator can change the automatically generated schedule. With every change, the system recalculates the schedules, resource occupancy, materials stock levels, and forecasts for all materials, documents, and resources affected by the change.

The system allows the generation of any number of plans. Each plan can have its own schedules, resource availability, and document set.
