Production planning is the iterative process of achieving optimal response to demand through production efficiency improvements. Efficiency could be improved by better coordination between departments, reducing changes in production transition from one product to another, meeting required deadlines, reducing the overall production length, account for production line preparation time and more. Manufacturing plants differ in their production processes and control parameters. The biggest pain point derives from the gap between production capacity and demand. Constraints based planning, like the one offered by a Planit based solution, yields an efficient production plan that utilizes existing production resources.
Distribution problems are those that require guaranteed delivery time windows when the occasional delivery tasks are not known in advance (Planning is not required when distribution tasks are assigned according to predetermined distribution lines). In those cases, constraint based planing is required to fulfill loyalty missions and reaching each of the destinations.
Almost every organization is engaged in management and human resource scheduling. Transparency and objectivity of workforce scheduling is adamant in achieving fairness and keep the confidence of the employees in the workforce scheduling outcome. Easy to use input screens are important for entering employees special requests and allowable substitutions.
