Production Footprint Optimization

The sequence and scheduling of production processes often play an important role in the ultimate performance of an organization’s supply chain. Supply Chain Guru enables detailed modeling of supply chain production processes.

Capturing the use of multiple constrained resources at various steps in the process, with multiple component inputs available or not, and tracking up time / down time, blocked time and resource states over time are key to understanding process bottlenecks.

Production footprint optimization enables:

  • Detailed modeling of work centers, routings and product changeovers
  • Full bill of materials modeling
  • Work resource scheduling
  • Tactical pre-build production planning capabilities

Supply Chain Guru also includes detailed discrete event simulation to visualize the operational performance of any scenario, to compare multiple scenarios, and to verify the service rates, inventories and site capacities over the defined time horizon.
