Mass Customization

The manufacture of highly engineered low-volume capital equipment presents specific challenges related to the proactive management of on-time delivery including responsiveness to changing customer requirements and the variability of production or supply chain.

There is little margin for delay, which comes with a high penalty, as our customers do not get a second chance to manufacture these items and fine-tune their processes. We provide clarity where there is no steady-state.

Job Shop

As a major element in the manufacturing supply chain, our customers need to be flexible to respond to their key customers when an expedited order arrives. The impact that expedited or new orders have on existing contracts and prior commitments provides the visibility needed to respond to customer needs.

In situations when every new order is unique, the software provides an action plan that maximizes capacity and minimizes lateness, providing our customers with visibility to their capacity profile.

Maintenance and Repair

While it can be more cost effective to repair capital equipment than it is to purchase new, or regulated by industry, it does come with unique complications in the re-manufacturing process with regards to scheduling and data management.

We have worked hand-in-hand with industry to develop a solution that matches the way these operations work and provides an improved method for managing information.

Mass Production

The repetitive manufacture of individual product lines is more often associated with forecasting than scheduling. However, there is strong incentive for these companies to be able to quickly react to shifts in the market which requires coordinating functional and flow manufacturing.

All assembly lines are fed by some other manufacturing source which often means product lines will compete for resources to fulfill new demand while not trading off so much capacity that lose progress on the next run.
