Faced with pressure to improve their bottom line, companies have set up configurable factories that can manage a diverse array of SKUs rather than cater to a specialized production process. With JDA Production Scheduling – Discrete, companies can generate feasible and optimal manufacturing schedules that take into account complex shop floor constraints, resulting in fewer changeovers and stock-outs.
With this powerful planning and scheduling tool, you can now optimize SKU diversity, demand fluctuations, and labor capacity rationalization on the manufacturing floor. Not only does JDA Production Scheduling – Discrete help you manage unwanted setups and changeovers, but it also helps you reduce costs and optimize existing resources.
JDA Production Scheduling – Discrete optimizes multi-stage manufacturing processes, as well as creates reactive scheduling workflows for times when the shop floor needs to be re-optimized in response to resource-down or inventory-shorting events. The interactive user interface features live constraint representation, providing you with the visibility you need to ensure your factory operates at peak performance.
