Supply Management

Plan Proactively for Production

Manufacturers face a significant challenge when it comes to meeting production requirements based on resources and customer demand. Equipment, time constraints, and personnel limitations combine to limit the maximum capacity of any production environment.

You’ve got to react quickly and intelligently to changes at any point in your supply chain or distribution service, and intelligently model your options for adjustment and improved profitability.

You need proper supply management software, including planning & scheduling tools, to be at your best. John Galt provides just that in our Atlas Suite. Get the supply management support you need to understand, manage, and monitor each planning variable as well as its impact on production priorities, capacity, and resources relative to the actual machines you use.

Supply Management Software Capabilities

As part of a comprehensive supply chain planning software, use Atlas Supply Management to overcome difficult planning and scheduling challenges including change overs, production down time, change in demand and production campaigns. Provide for firming of planned orders which allows planners to stabilize portions of the plan without disrupting manufacturing and procurement environments, and much more.

Supply Management

1. Rough Cut Capacity Planning

  • Visualize your resources for short-term and long-term planning for Executive S&OP
  • Translate your capacity into any unit of measure including weight, pallets, cases, and more
  • Model the effect of changes in production routing on cost, capacity and overall profitability
  • Review and allocate capacity across a multi-site network
  • Identify bottlenecks in real time respecting both sourcing constraints and lead times
  • Easily change configuration, rules, and calculation to see the effect in real time
  • Flexible user-defined calculations automatically balance production requirements with capacity
  • Dynamic S&OP reports that provide visibility to executives for better decision making

2. Master Production Scheduling

  • Generate an optimized, time-phased production plan that balances customer service and supply chain costs
  • Support leveling and smoothing production to effectively utilize capacity to drive production schedules and material plans
  • Support a multi-level MPS and postponement strategies that minimize risk in assembling and manufacturing finished products
  • Access real-time available-to-promise (ATP) capabilities to check resource availability before making a commitment to deliver an order to a customer
  • Consider time-phased BOMS as well as future expired inventory for the most accurate projected production plan
  • Analyze the effect of planning model changes to come up with the most profitable plan

3. Advanced Planning and Scheduling

  • Create a production schedule at any level considering both capacity constraints and material availability simultaneously
  • Apply schedule optimization rules to deal with problems such as minimizing changeover times, preferred sequencing, and campaigning
  • Support both backward- and forward-finites scheduling techniques
  • Maintain unlimited number of resources, products, and operations
  • Provides concurrent rule usage and advanced inter-operation constraints
  • Visualize your assembly process from raw materials through to finished goods
  • Manage tanks and scheduling for liquid storage and processing
